“Terry’s Tips” with Terry Ellsworth
Terry joined Art Share L.A. 9 years ago when it was rebuilding itself from the ashes administratively, financially, and physically. As a long-time Arts District resident and community staple, he brought decades of extensive art experience to the organization and saw the building’s incredible potential in revitalizing the Arts District. Today, he is proud to see Art Share L.A. living up to its mission, and can be found walking the hallways of the building sharing his stories or hanging up artwork for gallery shows. If you have any questions about the Arts District and all its glory, he’s the person to ask.
