hRenovate and Relaunch:  LACE Benefit Art Auction

Join our community of supporters and artists for an exclusive party to benefit LACE and its dedication to emerging artists, curators, and cultural workers.

In its next design, LACE anchors the new Hollywood Arts Collective complex, retaining its street-level storefront location on Hollywood Blvd.
