Art comes to life at the Fair’s Millard Sheets Center for the Arts

September 9, 2010

One of the hot trends in the art world today are studio tours where visitors get a behind-the-scenes look at artists and their creative processes. Many tours cover a lot of artists and their means of expression while covering a lot of ground going from one studio location to another.
The Millard Sheets Center for the Arts at Fairplex is a one-stop studio tour with about 40 artists demonstrating their talents in painting, wood and stone carving, ceramics, art glass and much more. Fairguests can ask questions and get inspired by what they’re seeing and then try their own hand at creating art in a workshop for all ages.
MSCAF is proud to be a part of the Smithsonian Institution Affiliation Program. Through this partnership the Center shares with the community the Smithsonian Institution’s artifacts, programs and expertise.
MSCAF is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
Here’s some of the action you’ll see at the Sheets Center:
