The Main Museum of Los Angeles Art is a new institution focused on L.A. art and artists. With a residency program at its center rather than a collection, The Main situates artists prominently and supports their continued engagement within the city’s evolving landscape.
When complete, The Main will unfold across three historic buildings in Downtown Los Angeles — the Farmers & Merchants Bank, the Hellman Building, and the Bankhouse Garage. It will include a variety of exhibition galleries, studio spaces for an artists’ residency program, a rooftop sculpture garden, amphitheater, a café and a restaurant.
The Main Museum of Los Angeles Art is an exempt, non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3).
Beta Main is a test site for The Main that will run in tandem with the development of the rest of the museum. By way of Beta’s programs, exhibitions, and opportunities to connect with the community, The Main will learn by doing, refining its vision and methods to make the greatest positive impact as a cultural catalyst in Los Angeles.
