Steve Turner’s Los Angeles Artists Map features 24 studios of emerging artists who work in a diversity of media and styles. The map grew out of Turner’s discipline of visiting an artist nearly every day, something he has been doing since 2009. When people discuss the local art scene, they usually describe the galleries on Wilshire Boulevard or those in Culver City and Santa Monica; they seldom mention the actual sites of production, whether Boyle Heights or Highland Park. Steve Turner’s Artists Map provides a new opportunity to expand one’s experience of the Los Angeles art community and to understand more fully how and where artists create their work.

Participating artists include: Sergio Bromberg, Joshua Callaghan, Alida Cervantes, Michael Decker, Noah Doely, Gabrielle Ferrer, Eben Goff, Yaron Michael Hakim, Pearl C. Hsiung, Masood Kamandy, William Kaminski, Greg Kozaki, Nevan Lahart, Jane Lee, Jed Lind, Justin Lowman, Lee Lynch, Anne McCaddon, Adam D. Miller, Jesse Mockrin, Ana Rodriguez, Morgan Wells, Rowan Wood & Jemima Wyman.

Prizes will be awarded to studio visitors, see link for details.

In addition, the first four visitors to each studio will receive a free ticket to Art Platform good for one person and a guest.
