ESMoA is an "art laboratory" located in El Segundo, California,. Its mission is to spread the spark of creativity through the display and education of visual arts. Rather than a classical museum, ESMoA has functioned as a catalyst for creative thinking offering three unique Experiences per year. The Experiences present a variety of media, including sculpture, painting, works on paper, performances, and photography. The Experiences are thematic and conceptual, rather than chronological. Transdisciplinary, International, Dynamic and Open are key elements of ESMoA's DNA.

ESMoA focuses on art education for students, families, and adults, and admission, is free. These activities range from school programs, drawing workshops, art talks, lectures, family days, cooking, yoga and dance classes, movie nights, etc. ESMoA is run by Artlab21 Foundation, a non profit 501(c)(3) public charity.

  • This place is treasure for art lovers. I took my mom to their drawing class on Friday mornings & right away, we felt the welcoming atmosphere. Overall, a gorgeous place with wonderful management. 10/10 highly recommend!!
  • ESMoa is a community gem. My BF and I had a magical evening there for a talk by Richard Foss; it was our first visit. The space is a one room gallery so the size won't wow you, but we were impressed by how the staff & volunteers arranged and managed all the details and little extras that turned a talk into a complete experience. We will definitely be following this space and hope to visit again soon and often.
