ABOUT

Lab Development

LA ArtLab was founded in June of 2005 with the goal of creating a strong network of artists focused on creative collaboration, artistic experimentation, community involvement, social and ecological consciousness and charitable contribution. The LA Artlab community is an international mix of artists with diverse backgrounds and a wide range of approaches to art making. The group meets regularly to critique and discuss art, collaborate on work and inspire artistic exploration. LA ArtLab is currently in the process of planning several upcoming thematically based Los Angeles area art shows.

The Samburu Project

As part of The Samburu Project’s annual fundraiser, LA ArtLab's WATER exhibit provided visual context to help raise funds so that The Samburu Project could continue its mission of building wells in Samburu, Kenya, an African community that lacks one of life’s most basic needs: water. Since the WATER show in 2006, The Samburu Project has continued its mission with great success. For more information on the organization's impressive progress visit, The Samburu Project.
