  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

Midtown Studio - Teaching at LACMA

Feb 28, 2014
Spotlight Category: College

Fine arts students have a unique opportunity to take painting classes with unprecedented access to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s world-class painting collection.  The Otis Mid-Town Studio at 6124 Wilshire Blvd. is within walking distance to the museum, allowing students to use the collection as a primary resource in developing their work.  The proximity of the studio to LACMA—just one block west--allows faculty and students to visit the museum on a weekly basis, when it is closed to the public, and bring information back to the studio. The 1,600 square foot space features high ceilings, concrete floors and large windows that face onto Wilshire Blvd.

In this unique series of painting courses taught by veteran faculty member Michael Schrier, students can physically examine works by Rembrandt, Delacroix, Cézanne, Picasso, Magritte, Warhol, Rothko, De Kooning, Ruscha, Baldessari, and many more Old, Modern and Contemporary Masters. Students may also consult with LACMA conservation and curatorial staff, getting a behind-the-scenes education in the operation of a major museum. The location of LACMA on the trendy Miracle Mile also ensures that students have access to many contemporary galleries and other institutions in the area such as the Craft and Folk Art Museum, A+D Architecture and Design Museum, and Petersen Automotive Museum.

"If I didn't know for sure that I was in a college sophomore show, I would have believed that I was in an exhibition at a well-established gallery or even in a museum."--KCRW's Edward Goldman commenting on exhibition of paintings by Otis students for ART TALK.  Read entire article
