About

ESMoA is an art laboratory located at 208 Main Street in El Segundo, California. Creative, functional, and agile, the Art Laboratory is a catalyst for creative thinking and expression, sparking the light of inspirational sources while embracing creativity in a broad sense that distinguishes it from classic museums. ESMoA’s mission is to Spread the Spark of Creativity through the display and education of visual arts. Art and art education are the foundation of any society as it makes one smarter and enables one to see the world with a larger perspective. ESMoA achieves its desired outcome by offering three unique Experiences – ESMoA’s word for exhibitions - per year. The Experiences present a variety of media, including sculpture, painting, works on paper, performances, and photography. The Experiences are thematic and conceptual, rather than chronological. With each Experience, the gallery space changes to best present the artwork and theme. Experiences can also take place outside of ESMoA’s walls, in the community. In addition to the exhibition space, a full artist’s work-live studio exists on the second floor of the ESMoA building. The Artist-in-Residence (AIR) space contains living quarters and a studio where artists can create works up to 8x20 ft. Artists living in the space have the opportunity to collaborate with ESMoA staff and the El Segundo community on innovative artistic projects. There is currently no application process. Artists are selected by the Curator, the ESMoA Advisory Board and OTIS College of Art and Design (Spring) for the first quarter of each year and the Royal Drawing School of London for the Summer period. ESMoA Artist-in-Residence Program has hosted artists from Germany, Iceland, Taiwan, Cuba, Lithuania, UK and France, Bulgaria, Argentina, etc. See complete list of Artist in Residents at: https://esmoa.org/about-us/artist-in-residence/
