The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. Founded in 1952, its mission is to promote, interpret, and present to the art of emerging, mid career, and established artists from culturally diverse Southern California. The Gallery showcases art from other parts of the world that is of relevance to the people of the City of Los Angeles. Its 10,000 square foot venue offers a dramatic exhibition space for large thematic group exhibitions that represent the current endeavors of area artists as well as exhibitions of work by individuals who have made a significant contribution to art in Los Angeles in particular and Southern California at large. The curatorial focus of the Gallery includes painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, design, video, sound, electronic, performance, and installation works. Once a year the Gallery serves as the host venue for the DCA's City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artist Fellowships exhibitions, featuring the work of the City's best mid career artists.

The Junior Arts Center
Constructed in 1967 through the cooperative efforts of the City of Los Angeles and Junior League, the Junior Arts Center provides and supports quality art programs that educate children and enrich the community through the celebration of art. For more than three decades, Barnsdall Arts/FOJAC has been committed to providing outstanding, affordable arts education programs to young people both on site at Barnsdall Art Park and in extensive outreach. With your help, we continue to develop and administer an impressive array of core programs, distinguished by excellence, imagination and rigor. We currently reach over 8,000 children annually with our art programs.
Aline Barnsdall's family built an empire from their endeavors in the oil industry, which allowed her the luxury of commissioning Frank Lloyd Wright to design this marvelous construction. The house embodies the recurring theme of Mayan Revivalism found in many of Wright's other projects - known for using large stones, introverted windows, courtyards, and ornately designed accompaniments. Water is meant to flow from a pool in the courtyard through an underground tunnel to this inside moat, and out again to a fountain. The Hollyhock plant is a repeating motif of the architecture and is used in many of the details around the property.
Public Tours of Hollyhock House are offered to the general public, reservations are not required.
