ABOUT

Our Story...

Recently renovated in 2020, our gallery has moved from the old chemistry building into its proper home of Da Vinci Hall as part of the Da Vinci Hall Modernization project. The 65,920 square-foot building is home to the Art and Architecture, Art gallery, Journalism, Photography and Ceramics programs. This building features 24 classrooms, an AV classroom with technology upgrades, IT and security upgrades, and ADA Accessibility improvements.

Some additional improvements include the installation of a new roof, seismic retrofit, and updates to the building’s fire protection, plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems. Once completed, the renovation of the 1962 building will include new technological features that will contribute to the student’s educational success.

Vama Gallery is generously supported by the LACC Foundation.

Our Exhibits

Vama gallery features the work of emerging and established LA artists in thematically curated shows. Artist talks, panel discussions, and related events provide context and opportunity for dialogue. Our exhibits are carefully curated by our team of generous volunteers and we pride ourselves on having a diverse showing of art from different disciplines and artists who come from unique backgrounds.

Visiting Artist Lecture Series

Each semester we welcome a handful of talented artists from across the US, some of which are Professors right here at LACC, to speak with our students. In the past, these lectures took place in-person, but with recent events of social distancing, we have moved these lectures to an online format via Zoom.
