We Are Expanding To The Santa Monica Airport! 

We are expanding to the Santa Monica Airport! 

We are pleased to announce the expansion of our supportive artist services to a second campus at the Santa Monica Airport. As the newly appointed Arts Program Managers for the City of Santa Monica’s hangar, on July 1, 2019 we begin programming the gallery and artist studios located at 3026 Airport Avenue. We are thrilled to welcome these 38 artists with a diversity of practices, styles, and Santa Monica roots, into our community. Over the next few weeks, their profiles will be added to our website, and we encourage you to check out their work.

Our gallery program will kick off with our ambitious new theme, Commons Lab: Place and Public Life  with a performance by Postcommodity and Guillermo Galindo in July, and an installation and a series of dialogues by Danish collective The Winter Office in August-September.

In October, the exhibition DENSE-CITY: Housing for Quality of Life and Social Capital opens in the Airport Gallery, and features projects by Los Angeles architecture studio Brooks + Scarpa exploring urban development, cultural equity, and access to public space.

We invite you to join us at the Airport and experience this extraordinary aeronautical neighborhood.

DENSE-CITY: Housing for Quality of Life and Social Capital is an exhibition of projects by Los Angeles architecture studio Brooks + Scarpa exploring urban development, cultural equity, and access to public space.

The exhibition features models, plans, visualizations, and drawings from two decades of projects addressing sustainable compact housing development and creation of affordable, vibrant, healthy communities through advocacy, innovation, and building.
