The LA Art Show and the Los Angeles Fine Art Show will return Jan. 27-31 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, West Hall 1201 South Figueroa Street, 90015.
Actress Anne Hathaway & Adam Shulman will host LA Art Show & Los Angeles Fine Art Show Opening Night Premiere Party Benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Jan. 27, 2016.
Premiere Night will also feature exclusive performance art pieces, special installations and a live musical performance.

“We are thankful to Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman for their continued support of our lifesaving work and for hosting this special event,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “St. Jude has made great progress in the fight against pediatric cancer, but it’s a fight that wages on. This annual fundraiser helps St. Jude continue to advance its mission of finding cures and for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to support from events like the LA Art Show & The Los Angeles Fine Art Show, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
“We are thrilled to have St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital return as our benefiting organization,” enthused Kim Martindale, general manager and producer of the LA Art Show. “St. Jude is the leading researcher in pediatric cancer. They freely share their research protocol worldwide, and as a result, more lifesaving treatments are available for children.”

Consul General Alsabusi, Eli Broad, Councilman Tom LaBonge, and Lubov Azria, among others.
In recent years, the LA Art Show (WEST HALL A) has become the most internationally diverse art platform in the Western world, bringing in the largest groupings of Korean, Chinese and Japanese galleries outside of Asia. Beginning in 2010, the show has actively developed its international gallery offerings to provide collectors with a unique opportunity, to spot international trends and zeitgeist through art, a medium that has the ability to transcend language. 

With a focus on historic and traditional contemporary works, the Los Angeles Fine Art Show (WEST HALL B) provides a dedicated experience for collectors of traditional works, from paintings, to sculpture and works on paper.

 The LA Art Show has attracted collectors and art enthusiasts for more than 20 years, and will present 120 galleries representing 20 countries from the Americas, Europe and Asia.

  1. Went here for a great all-you-can-eat buffet and at Chicago event space they held nothing back. Their food, service and mostly the staff were truly amazing. I was starving and am one of those voracious "sampling" type eaters who has to try everything in a buffet, and I couldn't make it!
