LACE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR RENOVATION
We are excited to share updates on the evolution of LACE. Many of you know that LACE’s roots begin in El Monte with the founding CETA artists, who later set up a space at 240 S. Broadway in Downtown LA. Following a few years there, LACE moved to 1804 Industrial Street, where it remained until 1993 before moving to the current 6522 Hollywood Blvd. location. LACE’s current gallery and two adjacent spaces to the east are in a 1919 building owned by the City of LA and will continue to undergo major construction in 2023 to create The Hollywood Arts Collective.
In its next iteration, LACE will be the visual arts anchor in the new complex, which includes a skylit paseo and courtyard leading to the Glorya Kaufman Theatre, non-profit arts spaces, and The Entertainment Community Fund Western Region Headquarters. LACE will retain its street-level storefront location with a re-designed façade and a renovated interior featuring a skylit gallery and mezzanine offices. The interior design of the gallery will be led by Formation Association. With the long-expected development of this City-owned property, LACE has an incredible opportunity to renovate and upgrade its exhibition facility, while fulfilling ADA and safety needs.
The LACE Team is temporarily located in an office in the neighborhood to continue both in-person and virtual programming during the renovation. Our new offices are located at 6464 Sunset Blvd., Suite 1070.
About The Hollywood Arts Collective
The project is a culmination of 11 years of cultural planning and development by The Entertainment Community Fund, developers Thomas Safran & Associates, and the City of Los Angeles Departments of Housing, Cultural Affairs and Transportation.
Located at the former parking lot behind LACE, The Hollywood Arts Collective will feature a Residential Building with 151 units of affordable housing, three resident gardens, and the new home for The Entertainment Community Fund Western Region Headquarters. The adjacent Arts Building on Hollywood Blvd. will be home to Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), the under 99-seat Glorya Kaufman Theater, a courtyard, and nonprofit arts office spaces.
