Angels Gate Cultural Center is a place that unites art, community and culture through creative discovery, exploration and enlightenment. Angels Gate Cultural Center brings art and culture to the community through interactive classes, gallery exhibits, professional artists' studios, art education programs in the schools and cultural events.
The galleries at AGCC are a place for discovery and wonder. The three galleries, located inside Building A, promote cross-cultural and cross-generational understanding by using the Arts to provide new perspectives and insights to topics that enrich our lives. The galleries collectively operate under a yearly theme from which artists, designers and performers are selected to interpret. Thus creating fresh and innovative programming that is unique within the South Bay and Harbor region.
The Main Gallery features large group exhibitions, extensive in scope, that explore those themes investigated throughout the year. The Project Space is a smaller gallery that focuses on solo projects that are in sync with the conceptual framework of the year and allow the viewer a nuanced understanding on a particular point of view. The Community Gallery, a collaboration between the Education and Gallery programs, breaks down the formal divisions between viewer and curator by providing the greater community with an opportunity to actively participate in the exhibition through the solicitation of art works, objects, and opinions.
Programs are made possible by the generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, California Community Foundation, California Arts Council, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
