DESCRIPTION



Beacon Arts Building 2nd Floor Studios (photo credit: David Teel Photography)


The 32,400-square-foot Beacon Arts Building at 808 N. La Brea Ave in North Inglewood, CA is an iconic four-story, solid reinforced concrete structure located in the heart of the burgeoning Inglewood Arts District. Having stored inanimate items for close to sixty years, originally as the legendary Bekins Moving and Storage Company, this dramatic 1951 edifice is now transforming into a springboard for artistic expression. In addition to ground floor gallery, the building offers a New York warehouse style environment for professional artists, with studio spaces for rent in various sizes up to 8,000 square feet with 11’6” ceilings.  

A brand-new risk-taking fine arts enterprise, directed by Renée Fox and housed within the iconic Beacon Arts Building, offers innovative art programming to enrich the cultural landscape of Los Angeles. Its primary directive is to provide and maintain the integrity of an exhibition space for contemporary art by Southern California artists working in all media, including painting, sculpture, installation, video, and performance art. Works by both emerging and established artists will be presented in an effort to provide a variety of ideas in different forms that both challenge and inspire. As a catalyst and advocate for new ideas, the endeavor enriches public understanding and appreciation of contemporary fine art by creating conversations through special events, lectures, symposia, and panel discussions with intellectual commentary on exhibitions. 

Beacon Arts Building is in the process of curating new tenants. Occupants must be productive fine art professionals who will contribute to the “life force” of the building. Artist-tenants currently have a unique opportunity to participate in the design of their own studio spaces in order to meet their specific art-making needs.

Beacon Arts Building features include:
• 24/7 access
• Gated parking
• Wi-Fi (included)
• 11’6″ ceilings

• Large freight elevator
• Shared outside work area

• Natural and daytime fluorescent lighting
• Professional building management
