Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG) is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. Founded and opened in 1954, its mission is to promote, interpret, and present the art of emerging, mid career, and established artists from culturally diverse Southern California. The Gallery showcases art from other parts of the world that is of relevance to the people of the City of Los Angeles. Its 10,000 square foot venue offers a dramatic exhibition space for large thematic group exhibitions that represent the current endeavors of area artists as well as exhibitions of work by individuals who have made a significant contribution to art in Los Angeles in particular and Southern California at large. The curatorial focus of the Gallery includes painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, design, video, sound, electronic, performance, and installation works. Once a year the Gallery serves as the host venue for the DCA’s City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artist Fellowships exhibition, featuring the work of the City’s best mid career artists.

    Magnificently spent time, delighting the senses w/striking vividness. But most pieces were tinged more goth & gore bent, some whimsical, some for shock value, & some rather senseless - all meant to intrigue & achieved that aspect on a pleasurable perceived level. The energy was great, but unfortunately did not stay to mingle much. Other LA friends beckoned to nearby Tavern to round artful nite w/avocado fries + fine beers. B4 this, stumbled into overpriced yet urban-retro-divine Umami Burger down the street. High recommend if money means nothing to u, yet tasty tiny burgers do ;-)

    Lionel, the budget for this DCA is tiny. Most of the money to support this gallery comes from private individuals. You are not only comparing apples to oranges, you are comparing the enormous cost of street repairs for an entire city to that of a single building.

    Interesting the city has enough money to refurbish yachts and operate art galleries but can't fix the streets.
