About the Ben Maltz Gallery

Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design showcases regional, national, and international established and emerging artists. It showcases their work to the Otis community and the public at large through exhibitions, programming, and publications. Open and free to the public year round, the Gallery serves Los Angeles’ vibrant art community and the city’s diverse population. Otis also acts as an integral, real-world educational resource for students, faculty, and staff on the campus of the world renowned art institution.

Gallery History

Millard Sheets created the gallery. Then in 1954, the California artist and architect Millard Sheets became Director of Otis Art Institute. Originally known as the Otis Gallery, it opened in 1957 at the MacArthur Park campus in downtown Los Angeles. Los Angeles Architect Frederick Fisher designed a stunning 3,200 square foot exhibition space.

It was then christened the Ben Maltz Gallery, and named in honor of Benjamin N. Maltz, father of Elaine Goldsmith (namesake of the Otis main campus), and prominent philanthropist. Maltz was also a broker and founding Director and former Chairman of City National Bank in Beverly Hills. Ben Maltz had a strong belief in giving back to the community and he was a generous benefactor of many local and national charities. He passed this philosophy on to his children, one of whom is Elaine Goldsmith. She is a longtime member of the Otis Board of Trustees, and one of the College’s major supporters.
