“The Arts in West Adams: Pattern, Decoration and Diversity” is the 3rd annual Art in Historic Places tour presented by West Adams Heritage Association (WAHA). The self-guided driving (or cycling) tour is Saturday, March 24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (last ticket sold at 1 p.m.). Tour participants may visit some of West Adams’ most interesting historic places, showcasing works by some of its most talented artists, working in media and subject matter from classic to contemporary.
Tour includes artists’ own homes and studios, plus two important cultural institutions: The William Andrews Clark Memorial Library (which, along with thousands of rare books, houses two distinct and diverse art collections), and the California African American Museum, whose current exhibit,” Places of Validation,” is part of the area-wide Pacific Standard Time exhibit.
Honorary Chairperson is award-winning actor, West Adams resident, noted art collector and gallery owner CCH Pounder. Known for her work in film and television (Bagdad Café, End of Days, Face/Off, Avatar, ER, The Shield, Warehouse 13 and many others), she has also enjoyed an art life, owning her own gallery in Los Angeles for over 15 years, and co-owning the first privately run museum of contemporary art in all West Africa in Dakar, Senegal, The Boribana Museum. Discovering new artists and celebrating the world of art is her great passion.
