Established in 1986, the Santa Fe Art Colony is LA’s only rent-restricted Artist-in-Residence complex.
The new owner has announced devastating rent increases on November 1, effectively evicting the artists. The Tenants Association is fighting to save the Art Colony and has made a purchase bid under California’s Affordable Housing Preservation Law — to keep rents affordable.
We need to raise $75,000 in the next six weeks to cover the costs of our fight, such as legal fees and the hiring of critical personnel essential to purchasing the Art Colony to maintain affordability for artists.
If you believe in the arts, in the impact that artists make in our community and in preserving affordable housing in Los Angeles, please support us by donating to our cause and sharing this appeal with your network.
