District Gallery Pop Up is a temporary gallery space featuring cutting edge works by national and local arts district artists. The gallery is a project of Los Angeles Downtown Arts District Space (LADADSpace), a 501(c) (3) non-profit arts organization dedicated to the creation of the Arts District Center for the Arts (ADCA) and to preserving and promoting the Arts District as a true creative community. LADADSpace offers grants to local arts organizations and individual artists whose activities and projects enrich the local and regional arts community. LADADSpace also serves as a fiscal sponsor for various artists and organizations downtown and historically has provided opportunities for educational workshops, community meetings, theater productions, music events, lecture series and performance art. The Arts District is one of the most filmed locations in the world and LADADSpace facilitates the relationship between production companies, city officials, local businesses and residents, insuring that the Arts District remains a renewable resource for filming (www.ladadspace.com).
At the core of the ADCA are founders and co-directors Jonathan Jerald, Timothy Keating, and Guy Zimmerman who bring industry experience and particular talents in community-based development, media and theater production and the creation and management of art installations to the project. The overseeing non-profit LADADSpace is complemented by the support of its Board of Directors, community partners, and an Advisory Board dedicated to the supervision of the ADCA.
