Just wanted to post this old article written in 2007 by the New York Times. The Arts are making a big impact here in L.A and its time for more and more Angelenos and CA residents begin to take notice. More young artists are staying in L.A. rather than leaving for "Art Meccas" such as London or New York City making Los Angeles an Art/Culture capitol in itself with not one devoted Central art district but many. Not only that, but many more University grads are finding that they can graduate in L.A. and find work in L.A. making L.A. one of the leading cultural capitols of the 21st century

For those of you who are still in doubt of Los Angeles' cultural merit, here's what the New York Times had to say about LA in an article dating back to March 2007...



The Art’s Here. Where’s the Crowd?

By EDWARD WYATT
March 25, 2007

LOS ANGELES

JOHN BALDESSARI, the conceptual artist who has long made his home here, for years gave his college art students one piece of advice when they graduated: Go to New York, the capital of the art world.

Now, however, Mr. Baldessari has a different view. “I don’t think it matters,” he said recently. “More and more young artists leave school and stay here. The opportunities are better, and the cost of living is cheaper. People involved in art regularly come to L.A. It really doesn’t matter if they live in New York or L.A.”

This was a great article, thanks much for posting it. I agree that public transport will be huge in helping this bohemian renaissance take place. That LA is cheaper to live in versus those other 3 cities and is getting cheaper thanks to market corrections, will also make it easier on young, starving artists. Cool stuff.

Saving MOCA
Philanthropist Eli Broad says his foundation will give $30 million if others will come forward to help.
By Eli Broad

The Los Angeles Times

With the news this week that the Museum of Contemporary Art on Grand Avenue is in dire financial straits and might have to merge with another institution, or even close, in the not too distant future, the time has again come for this city to step up.

L.A. to Host Ambitious 10-Week Arts Festival

Add another Ring to the Olympics legacy. A months-long extravaganza is planned for spring 2010, linked to L.A. Opera's staging of Wagner's 'Ring' cycle.

By Reed Johnson
November 3, 2008

In what could be the region's most ambitious, broadest-based artistic endeavor since the 1984 Olympic Arts Festival, Los Angeles Opera will join forces with more than 50 Southern California arts and educational institutions to stage a 10-week festival in spring 2010 inspired by the opera company's upcoming production of Richard Wagner's epic "Ring" cycle.

Los Angeles Artists Have Quite a Past

Overshadowed by Hollywood and mostly ignored by New York-based publishers, the region's artists have created a thriving art scene. The art world is noticing -- and delving into its history as well.

Suzanne Muchnic
October 26, 2008

In the eyes of the art world, Los Angeles is a city of the future. Forever re-creating its art scene with new galleries, updated museums, unconventional outposts and the latest crop of graduates from Southern California schools, L.A. seems to be a place where the only way to look at the arts is forward.

SurekRZA - man, you should get a job with the L.A. Chamber of Commerce!

I'm not saying that in a negative way at all. You're really a big L.A. supporter!

Murakami animation studio coming to L.A.
5:00 AM, November 25, 2008

Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, whose giant Buddha, bug-eyed monsters and magical mushrooms packed in huge crowds last year at the Museum of Contemporary Art, is putting down roots in Los Angeles. A multifaceted artist who embraces painting and sculpture, film and mass-produced goods as part of a single enterprise, he is planning to open an animation studio here next summer.
