The Exhibition

The Artist Collective is grounded in a mission to create an open platform for a diverse roster of emerging and established artists. With over 120 artworks in various mediums and artistic styles, the exhibition has something for everyone, with accessible price ranges to make art more accessible to a wider audience. The exhibition is a tribute to MRG’s roots in Los Angeles and is expected to showcase many local creatives, some making their debut to the city’s art scene.

The Artist Collective Art Walk

Attendees to The Artist Collective will have the added bonus of using Artmatcher Art Tags to learn more about the art. Art Tags are small stickers or cards that hang next to artworks in galleries, museums, studios, or streets. Attendees can tap their phones on the tags to learn about that piece, watch videos, connect with the artists, and share and interact with the broader art community.

 Services for Artists and Collectors

In addition to the exhibition, Michael and Tara are excited to offer valuable services to artists and collectors. They will help emerging artists launch their creative careers and place their works around the Greater Los Angeles area, in addition to brokering and advisory services to collectors. With their extensive knowledge of the inner workings of the art world, Michael and Tara are motivated to create a more inclusive and accessible art world through this platform.
