Salon Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Salon was founded by Mercedes Gertz and Alma Ruiz in September 2018. Inspired by the Paris Salon, which they had attended in the Spring of that year, they enthusiastically embraced Rebecca Dolinsky and Carmen Mariscal’s invitation to form a similar group on the West Coast. The salon has grown to encompass thirty-six members, all in creative professions. They meet once a month on the LACMA campus to share ideas, support each other’s projects, and once The Box Project took form, to shape its presentation into an exhibition.
