This “By Locals, For Locals” community festival celebrates the diverse talent and imagination of the musicians, artists, community members and local businesses of Northeast Los Angeles.

At Center for the Arts Eagle Rock, we provide access to local, innovative and accessible programming through arts education, concerts, workshops, film screenings, gallery shows and summer arts camp. We showcase the work of over 200 local artists each year through our art exhibitions program as well as our yearly art auction.

Through Imagine Studio, our after school arts enrichment program, we bring working contemporary artists into elementary and middle schools classroom throughout Northeast Los Angeles to connect our community’s youth with the joy and discovery that an exploration of the arts can bring.

October 14, 2017 10am-5pm Los Angeles Printer's Fair

Billed as a “Celebration of Letterpress, Book Arts & Paper,”
the Los Angeles Printers Fair at the International Printing Museum in Carson is the largest letterpress gathering of its kind in the West.

The Los Angeles Printers Fair at the International Printing Museum in Carson, CA, is an annual celebration of book arts, letterpress, printing, and paper. With the backdrop of the world’s largest collection of working antique presses, each year 1,500 visitors and 80 artists/vendors gather to experience the creative world of book arts and artistic printing. Throughout the Printing Museum’s galleries, visitors can print their own keepsakes on antique letterpresses, have their name cast in printers type, make paper by hand, or even screen print their own shirt. The special theme for this year’s Printers Fair is “Printing on the Silver Screen” featuring printing presses and artifacts that the Printing Museum has rented to Hollywood over the last 75 years. These presses have been featured in many movies and Westerns including The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), Have Gun Will Travel (1957), even John Boy’s Press on The Waltons (1971). Guests will have a chance to print a special “Newsies Banner” keepsake on the actual press rented for the cult hit Newsies (1992).
