Historic-Cultural Monument status granted to Santa Fe Art Colony!

L.A.’s City Council officially named Santa Fe Art Colony as a Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM) on February 4, 2020. The L.A. Conservancy nominated the site for HCM designation in June 2019. Thank you to everyone who attended meetings and wrote letters to voice support for this designation! This affirms the value of artist live/work communities and the cultural importance of working fine artists. 
While this is an important designation, it does not preserve affordable housing at the art colony or protect the unique community of artists practicing at this historic live/work studio complex in downtown Los Angeles. We are advocating for the Santa Fe Art Colony as an ongoing community of working artists with the affordable spaces we need to be able to contribute to the city of Los Angeles. Any amount you can donate will help!
