If you are new to Los Angeles you may not know about one of the biggest art colonies, The Brewery.
The Brewery Art Colony, located in Los Angeles, has been called the largest live-and-work artists' colony in the world. The compound is made up of twenty-one former warehouses with an old Edison power plant chimney dating to 1903, house work studios, living lofts, restaurants and galleries.
The Brewery Art Colony began in 1903 as the Edison Electric Steam Power Plant and then as a Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery. Years later it was converted into artist lofts.
