About the Avenue 50 Studio:

Avenue 50 Studio is an arts presentation organization grounded in Latin@ Chican@ culture. Our monthly shows principally exhibit artists of color who display a high quality of work, and who have not been represented in mainstream galleries. We seek to build bridges of cultural understanding through artistic expressions. Using content-driven art to educate and to stimulate intercultural understanding, we build relationships and collaborations with artists and communities. Our twelve year track record of over 300 shows in the Northeast LA area has ranged from international exchange exhibits to presenting Asian and African American artists in a largely Latino community. The art openings are a testament to the mix of cultures, national origins, and races that make up metro LA and our Highland Park neighborhood. We feel the showing of multicultural arts on a monthly basis in a working class community can go a long way in educating people to the importance of diverse art in our lives. Along with this, Avenue 50 Studio is a center for cultural activities with workshops in art, spoken word and other creative forms of expression. Our community gathers around the exhibits and poetry readings. We are constantly evolving and our goal is to continue the exhibition and spoken word presentations.

Clusters -- Personal Vision, the second of three scheduled exhibitions for the newly renovated Medical Village located in the VIP clinic, continues our partnership with many of the Local Color artists. With Clusters, we give the artists the opportunity to explore issues of “comfort, humor, familiarity, or spirituality” through their own personal visions. We are challenging our artists to consider the significance of their choices. The artists chosen for this show range generationally in gender and ethnicity to provide a broad and actual portrait of our NELA community. Each artist will be given a 4' x 6' space to exhibit up to six art works which will hang salon style. The Changing Exhibitions Program is a collaborative effort among Astrid Heppenstall Heger, M.D., Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, The Medical Village; Los Angeles Supervisor Gloria Molina; the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; and the Avenue 50 Studio.

This event is free and open to the public.
