    New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum’s work has situated itself as a hybrid of painting, sculpture, and installation over a career spanning 30 plus years. Exploring the intricacies of color, Apfelbaum weaves her way, both literally and conceptually, through ideas of Minimalism, Pop aesthetics, and Color Field painting to blur the lines between two and three dimensional art making.

Midtown Studio - Teaching at LACMA

Fine arts students have a unique opportunity to take painting classes with unprecedented access to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s world-class painting collection.  The Otis Mid-Town Studio at 6124 Wilshire Blvd. is within walking distance to the museum, allowing students to use the collection as a primary resource in developing their work.  The proximity of the studio to LACMA—just one block west--allows faculty and students to visit the museum on a weekly basis, when it is closed to the public, and bring information back to the studio.
