It’s LA Art Month folks! The City of Los Angeles has declared January of each year “Los Angeles Arts Month.” Los Angeles is a hothouse of culture and creativity where the cutting-edge is neighbored with the historic. Los Angeles Arts Month will encourage residents and visitors to explore the City’s vast cultural offerings and seek new cultural experiences: from visiting a local gallery or museum little known to them, to catching a show at a small theater, to getting a taste of a multi-cultural festival.
