OPENING: THE ELLSWORTH COLLECTION
February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Art Share L.A. is honored to present The Ellsworth Collection in memory of Arts District historian and Art Share L.A.’s longtime Ambassador Terry Ellsworth. We will be having an opening reception February 10th at 6PM. The night will be a celebration of Terry Ellsworth and his contributions to the Downtown Art District
The Ellsworth Collection includes works from Shepard Fairey, Emmeric Konrad, and Becca Midwood, among other prominent Los Angeles artists, as well as ephemera from the Downtown Los Angeles arts community’s evolution. His collection tells the region’s story, including the pioneering of the Arts District; the artist community that surrounded him; and his role in Art Share L.A.’s emergence. Visitors can view The Ellsworth Collection in the Main Gallery — a space where Terry cultivated and mentored our community of artists, curators, and creatives.

The Ellsworth Collection will be on view February 10 – March 4, 2023 at Art Share L.A. located at 801 E. 4th Place.
About Terry Ellsworth
Terry Ellsworth was a prominent figure in the downtown art community and – for more than a decade – an incomparable Art Share L.A. team member. He saw what the building could become during the Arts District’s revitalization and infused decades of his art experience into the evolution of Art Share L.A. His affability and his commitment to accessible, community-based art anchored the organization through its biggest transitions. As Art Share L.A.’s Ambassador, Terry would often install art shows and walk the building’s hallways sharing stories. He was a magnetic storyteller who held friends’ and patrons’ ears at each event with equal parts history and humor. Terry enriched our lives. We hold fast to his memory and spirit, which live on within our galleries and throughout the Arts District.
