A NSFW business wasn't exactly what Mar expected when Bernie pitched a concept that put women entertainers front and center. Luckily, she had another that she was more sensitive to because it hit close to home.
Picture this: Palm Springs SIP, a few friends, Gen Z kids, Frenchies, TikTok, movies, and conversation. Fast forward a year: some learnings, a curated team, and here we are.
The LA Art Box. The LAAB.
Mar is all about making connections with people, personally & professionally - what better fit for The LAAB? Among friends, he’s funny, quick-witted, sharp-tongued; he retells stories in a way that has someone inadvertently snorting or farting. Among strangers, he’s pensive, observant, mysterious - they are left asking themselves: Who is that bald wonder?
They say the most memorable stories are simple and to the point. Bernie wanted to do something different: to be creative, highlight cultures & issues, and give back. So, she left her corporate life and convinced her lifelong friend to join the ride ... and the rest is history.
Bernie’s new story has a purpose. Passion. The LAAB.
We create exhibits and promote initiatives that are powered by a purpose beyond profits.
We share art and events that connect to the issues that matter in our communities.
Our space is for everyone. No matter your age, race, and culture. The LAAB is for you.
The LAAB welcomes Artists and Guests from diverse cultures, experiences, and beliefs.
We are more than glitz, glam & Instagram. Every visit to The LAAB is one to remember.
We partner with organizations, companies and collaborate with Artists continually. We want to hear your story. If you are interested in partnerships and collaboration, we’d love to talk to you.
The LAAB was made possible thanks to our KickStarter family:
