The Brewery Artwalk Association, (BAA) is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 Organization. Our mission is to produce, organize and facilitate the recurring biannual event known as the Brewery Artwalk. The Brewery Artwalk is a free, educational, public arts event, designed to create an alternative venue for art exposure. It also allows artists at the Brewery the opportunity to open their studios and connect with the general public, the art industry, other working artists and the community. Families, children, students and individuals are encouraged to view the artists’ work, meet with the artists in person and engage in dialogue about the art. The event is a unique community service open and free to all.
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, patronts 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
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.
