EXHIBITIONS

Exhibitions are an integral part of our mission to celebrate art in our community. We feature our unique UNESCO International Collection of Child Art, as well as the work produced in our classes and workshops, in numerous exhibits throughout the year. Many of our programs, like LAs BEST and Project Ragan, culminate in on-site displays.

The Main Concourse at Kaiser-Sunset Hospital is our primary exhibition site. We install two exhibits annually. Since the building opened in 2009, hundreds of thousands of people have viewed our installations there. We also feature student work at our studio during the semi-annual Brewery Art Walks. In the past our ICAC and student work have been displayed at the Bridge Gallery in LA City Hall, the Pasadena Civic Center, and Children’s Hospital as well as in other corporate and civic institutions.
