Los Angeles: Guide to The Brewery Art Walk

Brewery Art WalkThe Brewery Art Walk has been a fixture of the LA art seen since its inception in 1982, and has been growing in popularity ever since.  This non-profit live/work space for artists was created out of the industrial site left by the Pabst Blue Ribbon brewing company and is now the largest artist-in-residence community in the world.  Its located in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles just north of downtown.


What is the Brewery Art Walk?

Twice a year (Spring and Fall) the Brewery Artist community opens its doors to the public for a chance to walk through their maze of lofts, view the art on display, make purchases and meet the artists themselves.  There is a restaurant, food trucks and a beer garden.
