The Brewery Art Walk and Open Studios
The creation of the Brewery Arts Complex began in 1982 at the site of the Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery. With the passing of the Artist-In-Residence code, artists could rent live/work space in industrially zoned buildings. We rented only to artists and that is our policy to this day.
In July 1997, the LA Weekly called us “the world’s largest artist-in-residence community” and in a March 1999 Los Angeles Times article The Brewery was quoted as the “world’s largest art complex.” These are true lofts, not apartments, in industrial buildings that are a part of what has become a uniquely vibrant and creative community
“We are one of the oldest and largest artist colonies in the world, celebrating over 30 years. Covering 23 acres in 14 buildings of live-work spaces, 500-700 artists and businesses call The Brewery their home. Twice a year, we open our doors and invite the public to enjoy our open studios at The Brewery Art Walk.”
“About The Brewery Artwalk: The Brewery ArtWalk is a twice annual open studio weekend at the worlds largest art complex. With over 100 participating resident artists, you will have the opportunity to see new works, discover new favorites, speak with the artists and purchase artwork directly from the artists’ studios. The ArtWalk takes place in the Spring and Fall, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm Admission and parking are free. Come and support LA’s finest artists, take home some great works and dine at the on-site restaurant.
