“We are fortunate to have a facility like Art City Studios located only a short drive from Los Angeles. It is truly unique, one of less than a handful of sites in the U.S. that combines studio space for about 20 working sculptors, hundreds of tons of rock and stone to supply sculptors from a large regional area the basic material for their work, plus its own on-site gallery”, says Calderón

Stone as a medium for tools, weapons, worship, shelter, magic and creative expression is as old as human time. It ebbs and flows into different forms of art, in different times and myriad places.
