The Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP), a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization, will be hosting its annual Fundraising Gala on Saturday, April 13th, 6 pm – 9:30 pm (NOTE: A 5 pm – 6 pm exclusive preview and walk-through w/curator of photographs for auction is reserved for sponsors only) at Quixote Studios in West Hollywood, CA.
LACP is proud to honor portrait, entertainment and advertising photographer Art Streiber for his years of continued excellence and his commitment to the photographic community. Multi-award-winning actress, author, and activist Jamie Lee Curtis will present the honor. Enjoy an on-site silent auction and online auction, cocktails and appetizers, DJ/live music, a photo booth, silent auction items, and more surprises
LACP strives to build a community of dedicated photographers and to strengthen the importance of photography as an art form by providing education, scholarships, grants and public programs focused on youth and low-income families including free photography instruction for the Boys & Girls Clubs in and around Los Angeles and personalized mentorship for at-risk teens through the Spark Program.
2019 marks the organization’s 20th anniversary, created as The Julia Dean Photo Workshops and founded in 1999 by Julia Dean, LACP’s Executive Director. The non-profit LACP was established in October, 2013 and obtained 501(c)3 tax-exempt status in August, 2014. “When I started LACP, it was called the Julia Dean Photo Workshops because I was the only teacher. Many of you recently discovered us, but some of you have watched us grow over the past 20 years from one teacher to more than 100. We now offer 150 classes a year and a multitude of opportunities for photographers of all ages and experience levels. Transitioning to a non-profit six years ago (hence the name change to LACP) was a very important decision for us in our quest to support the photography community. In addition to our classes, we now offer free after-school instruction through 10 Boys & Girls Clubs around Los Angeles.” – Julia Dean, executive director.
