The Brewery Art Colony in Downtown Los Angeles presents its fall Brewery Artwalk this weekend, Saturday October 1st and Sunday October 2nd from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The Artwalk showcases over 100 participating resident artists, offering guests a variety of works from diverse art styles including: paintings and sculptures, graphic design, photography, architecture and performance art. This free event is held twice a year (Fall and Spring) and provides guests with the opportunity to speak with the artists who both live and work in the colony and purchase works directly from the studios.
The Brewery Art Colony is the world’s largest art complex with over 300 artists and arts businesses residing in the colony. The industrial complex, which is comprised of 21 separate buildings with some structures dating back to 1903, was originally the home of the Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery, as well as Los Angeles’ first power plant – the Edison Electric Steam Power Plant.
Journalist Karla S. Blume described the colony as feeling “very much like the campus of an alternative college, filled with youthful energy and an artsy experimental subculture. With practitioners of a variety of mediums, the common message seems to be: Create.”
The Brewery Artwalk’s admission is free and open to the public. Food and drinks will also be available for purchase. It is located at 2100 N. Main Street in Los Angeles., just off of the 5 Freeway.
