If you pass by the corner of La Cienega and Melrose before June 8 you can see dragons, tigers, bamboo, and even a few portraits and abstract artworks—created by visitors to the LACMA Boone Children’s Gallery.
The Center for Early Education, a not-for-profit school in West Hollywood, invited LACMA’s Education Department to be a part of WoW: Windows on West Hollywood—a project showcasing artwork created in programs serving the families of West Hollywood and Los Angeles. The Boone Children’s Gallery jumped at the chance to be a part of the project and exhibit brush paintings made by kids, teens, families, and adults made at LACMA.
All the paintings currently displayed in CEE’s three large windows facing out onto La Cienega at Melrose were proudly donated to the Boone Children’s Gallery by their makers. In a few weeks a new round of art will be on display
