LOS ANGELES (KABC) --
This weekend, the Brewery Arts Complex, a home and workplace for hundreds of artists, is opening its doors to the public for a free art walk.
There are more than 500 artists living and working in the Brewery complex, which spans 23 acres, just west of the Golden State Freeway.
It first opened in 1897 and operated as a Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery for 82 years before becoming an arts complex. Now after three decades, it has been dubbed "The World's Largest Artist Colony," with more artists living and working there than anywhere else.
"We love having that title because it inspires other people around the world to create communities just like ours," painter Kristine Schomaker said.
Twice a year, the artists open their studios to the public for an art show, which features photography, fashions, paintings, architecture, ceramics and sculptures, among other forms of art.
The art walk will be held Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. The Brewery is located at 2100 N. Main St. #A-10 in downtown Los Angeles. For more information check out the Brewery's website at www.breweryartwalk.com.
I've had it! I can't take the secrets and lies any longer. I've designed some large parts of a Coachella project this year, and with the event just two weeks out, I'm finally cracking. Here's what we are up to: we are turning the Polo Fields into a MASSIVE Football Field, complete with artificial turf (since the grass dies so quickly out there) and painted yard lines. This installation serves many purposes, but primarily:
- Let the kids exhaust themselves so they go to bed at a reasonable hour!
- Leave your words at home! Now you can just TACKLE that person you can't keep your eyes off of!
- With accurately measured yardage lines, concert attendees can easily monitor the distance they travel each day!
- Perfect excuse for barreling to the front rows of your next concert with no concern for the well being of those around you!
- The plastic grass serves as a water conservation measure for the polo fields!
- Football helmets are the new war bonnet?
I could go on and on with the benefits here, but you get the point. See you in the locker room!
Living the Dream
For me, being an artist is more than painting alone in my studio. I am inspired by other artists, off-beat adventures and spectacle. I curate exhibitions, collaborate on large public art installations, am an occasional color consultant and interior designer and sometimes I sculpt. I seem to do a lot of writing, but that's just business. I live an art-filled life. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
