What is Art Share?
Art Share L.A. is a santcuary for the arts in downtown LA. We maintain a 28,000 sq ft warehouse in the heart of the arts district. Upstairs, we provide 30 subsidized live/work lofts for artists. Downstairs, we have a community programmed facility offering classes, exhibitions and events
Through our Artists in Residence Program, made possible by the Los Angeles Housing Department, Art Share provides affordable live/work microlofts to 30 artists.
All units are leased on 1-year contracts. Exact ammenitites vary. No pets, sorry :(
