NASA/JPL The Neutra Institute Arcana : Books on the Arts Miles Davis Estate Mount Wilson Observatory The Salk Institute hClub Los Angeles Tom of Finland Foundation Philosophical Research Society
Although Los Angeles contemporary artists are in high demand, most remain undiscovered. Visibility requires resources.
LA is now the contemporary art capital of the world
One in seven people in LA are creative industry workers and, together generate $207 Billion in creative economic output.
The undiscovered artist is waiting to be discovered.
More buyers are collecting from local, living artists now more than ever before Local buyers dominated in 2018, accounting for a share of 57% of total buyers and the auction market for works by living artists increased by 23% to $3.3 billion.
LA can no longer afford not to invest in local artists The current poverty line in Los Angeles is set at a yearly income at or below $58,385. 57% of artists living in Los Angeles reported an income below $50,000 per year. With rent and income tax at an all time high, LA is at risk of losing its local artists. LA’s creative economy provides 864,958 jobs and $207.8 billion in annual output.
