The Los Angeles Artists' Studio Open House Tour

New, 3 comments

It's easy to forget that when Los Angeles receives acclaim for its burgeoning art scene, it's not because of a giant boulder's fabulously delayed arrival or a phallic train the size of Jeff Koons's ego. No, the LA art world is acclaimed for the huge number, the quality, and the diversity of the artists it's comprised of. For this Weekend Open House Tour, let's look at some of the studios the next generation of LA artists may inhabit.
