Arts District information
Lonely Planet review
The Helms complex marks the beginning of Culver City’s vital arts district, which runs east along Washington to La Cienega and up one block to Venice Blvd. In 2003 art-world movers and shakers Blum & Poe relocated their gallery here from Santa Monica, drawn by cheap rents and airy, malleable spaces in old warehouses.
Since then, more than two dozen galleries have piggybacked on their success. The best of the bunch are on La Cienega.
