About the Exhibition

Free Admission
 
From its inception at the Devil’s Gate Dam area in Altadena to its terminus near downtown Los Angeles, the Arroyo Seco encompasses a variety of flora and fauna as well as some of the region’s most culturally diverse urban communities. A new exhibition at the Autry’s historic Southwest Museum Mt. Washington Campus draws on the beauty and diversity of the Arroyo Seco through paintings, drawings, and mixed-media works by more than a dozen local artists.
 
Organized by local artists and curators Raoul De la Sota and Roderick Smith, For the Love of the Arroyo includes works by artists Judith Amdur, Diane Behrens, Manny Cosentino, Gwen Freeman, Cidne Hart, Kevin Hass, Peter Hess, Bonnie Lambert, Michael Nissen, Ramon Ramirez, Gail Werner, Richard Willson, and Katsu Yokoyama, as well as De la Sota and Smith. 
 
The featured artwork will be available for purchase but will remain on view during the run of the exhibition. A portion of proceeds from the artwork sales will go to the community fund for the restoration and maintenance of the Marmion Way Mural, a 2004 mural by Daniel Cervantes that was defaced by graffiti for many years and is slated to be restored in 2017.
