January is LA Arts Month


Talk about the worst time to celebrate the arts, right after the holidays when everyone is spent, literally and financially. Luckily, there are many wonderful arts institutions that make visiting them easy and affordable. This year marks the first annual Los Angeles Arts Month’s to be held every January. Its mission is to raise awareness, appreciation, and participation in the arts in Los Angeles in all forms. It is an open invitation for all to discover LA's arts and cultural offerings. Long considered a haven for artists and creative expression, the Los Angeles art scene includes—world-class museums; concert halls and cultural institutions; gallery rows; theatres; public art complexes and renowned art; theatre, film, and design schools.  Los Angeles boasts the country’s largest creative workforce, which includes a world-renowned film industry, and employs nearly 1 million people throughout the region.

Below are a few websites with calendar of events during LA Arts Month. Clear Channel, Wells Fargo, and Univision will be doing ticket-giveaways or discounts to various shows and exhibitions. Not to be missed is the FADA LA Art Show. I've attended for the past several years and it is filled with wonderful, whimsical, and deranged art. Just how I like it.
