Living Museum Art Center

By | August 17, 2004

The Living Museum Art Center at Harbor View House is an arts program that is run by HealthView. Harbor View House is a non-profit residential mental health care facility in Southern California. The website has four pages of work (though unfortunately the first sent doesn’t appear in FireFox due to some IE proprietary HTML) done by people at the facility. Some of the pieces are very cool. Others are … well, hey, I’m not particularly impressed by everything I see at SFMOMA, either. But if you are into raw, emotional paintings, I think you will definitely find some pieces that interest you.

If you’re in the Oakland area and you find this artwork interesting, I highly recommend that you stop by Creative Growth Art Center. Creative Growth is a bit different in that the artists don’t actually reside there, but Creative Growth has a fantastic workspace for them to get engaged, experiment, and create art. You also get a lot of opportunities to meet with the artists.

The Living Museum is at 921 S. Beacon Street, San Pedro, CA, and their phone number is 310-547-3341 Extension 3154, and they are open Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Jennifer, thanks for the email about the Living Museum. I’ll try to stop by next time I head down to SoCal.

    Dear Living Museum Art Center

    I am an international artist from Japan currently living in San Diego, California. I graduated from San Diego States University with bachelor degree of art and obtained OPT visa. In order to develop my career in U.S, I will need to obtain O-1 visa a.k.a artist visa till summer â??07. I currently am seeking for art dealers or curators who can be my visa supporters.

    I am writing to introduce my work. Please consider my paintings for exhibitions. Attached materials are biography and statement about my artistic proposals.

    If you are interested in seeing my work, I would be happy to send additional materials or arrange studio visit at your convenience.

    Thanks for making allowance for my work.


    Tomo Uyesugi
