~ Maple St. Construct ~

Both a gallery and residency center, Maple St. Construct invites artists, primarily from Los Angeles, to create art and display their work. This space is highly active, with monthly shows of both national and local artists. If you want to go to Los Angeles without going to Los Angeles, you need to visit Maple St. Construct.

This is the final offering from Jonathan Orozco’s Art Show Guide. Find more local guides on our Things To Do page. As the delta variant spreads through the community, remember to get fully vaccinated and mask up — even if you’re fully vaxxed — before participating in public activities.
