City's ‘WeHo in Paso’ Exhibition Returns To City after Critically Lauded Run in Paso Robles
In October 2018, the City of West Hollywood partnered with Studios on the Park in Paso Robles, California to debut WeHo in Paso, a set of art works exploring life in the City of West Hollywood. The exhibition features animations, archival digital prints, original paintings, pen and ink drawings, and photographs representing the unique and personal lenses of 12 artists who live in West Hollywood.
WeHo in Paso was exhibited in Paso Robles through October 28, 2018 and now makes its return to the City of West Hollywood with a free and open-to-the-public artist reception on Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the City’s Werle Building, located at 626 N. Robertson Boulevard. The exhibition will remain on display until the end of November with viewing by appointment, email email@example.com to make a reservation. Admission is free. Parking is available at meters along adjacent Robertson Boulevard, Melrose Avenue, and Santa Monica Boulevard as well as at the nearby five-story parking structure at the West Hollywood Library located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard.
The concept for WeHo in Paso was first generated by Studios on the Park, which approached the City of West Hollywood about this collaboration after meeting with the City’s arts staff and participating in a tour of the City’s public art collection. Impressed by the breadth and energy of the City’s murals, in particular, Studios on the Park hoped to bring this same dynamic to its gallery by featuring artists from West Hollywood.
The exhibition responds to three of the strategic principles — space, support, and visibility — set forth in a recent community-based cultural plan for the City of West Hollywood. The Plan is the result of an 18-month-long process during 2016 and 2017, which included contributions from more than 1,700 individuals and many groups.
WeHo in Paso is organized by the City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division, part of the City’s Economic Development Department in collaboration with Studios on the Park in Paso Robles, California.
