The Brewery Art Colony, located in Los Angeles, has been called the largest live-and-work artists' colony in the world. The compound sits on twenty-one former warehouses with an old Edison power plant chimney dating to 1903, house work studios, living lofts, restaurants and galleries.[1] The Brewery is home to practitioners of a variety of artistic media from painting, sculpture and photography to industrial design, architecture and experimental new media.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

History[edit]

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.
