Mayor Tony V. signed an ordinance Monday allowing the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery to have free admission. The Department of Cultural Affairs hopes the freebie will encourage more Angelenos to visit the gallery, which has been serving the community since 1951.

Located at Barnsdall Park in Hollywood, the museum has been a venue for Southern California artists for decades.

“The arts should not be a luxury available only to those who can afford them. As the cultural capital of the United States, Los Angeles must strive to ensure the public has unfettered access to the City’s arts resources,” Mayor Tony said.
