Art Heals...

San Fernando Valley art non profit 11:11 A Creative Collective, Inc. was incorporated in 2013 with the mission of providing a collaborative and multidisciplinary environment for artists and the public.  Although, 11:11's impact on Valley communites far exceeds its mission statement. 

Founded in 2009 by Addy Renteria and Erin Stone, 11:11 ACC began as a grassroots effort to establish a creative community in the San  Fernando Valley.  Addy, Erin and the founding team realized that Valley creatives had no outlet to show their work, grow professionally and be a part of a cohesive artistic community so with no funding but a rich creative network, they began creating art exhibitions, artwalks and opportunities for local artists and musicians to create, grow and network.  Over the last 8 years, 11:11 ACC has grown to be a 501(c)3 non profit organization that has programmed 125 sqaure miles of 818 communities through:

-12 murals and public art projects 

-Over 3 dozen artwalks and street festivals

-20 professionally curated art exhibitions

-Over 4 dozen classes, workshops, demonstrations and seminars for artists and the public

-Providing over 685 artists opportunities to add vibrance and color; decorating out comminuties with their artwork

-Over 5 dozen concerts with performances by over 80 musicians and poets for public audiences.

In 2017, 11:11 ACC is ready and eager to establish an SFV based arts facility to house its growing creative community.  We envision this facility to be not only a hub for innovative artstic expression, but

A) to encourage collaboration and mobilization of the arts between artists and the public; 

B) to provide resources for artistic and professional development; and 

C) to create a destination that offers diverse activities, entertainment and cultural experiences of artistic excellence.

11:11’s main facility will exhibit the art created by local and international artists. 11:11 will collaborate with top galleries and curators while increasing people’s awareness about the importance of art for a healthy community.  It is envisioned that exhibitions will rotate every 4-8 weeks.

The exhibition space will operate as a commercial gallery showcasing innovative and emerging art from our studio artists and invitational artists of all disciplines from around the world. It will also showcase the talents of up and coming curators providing them with a flexible space in which they can have creative freedom.

Program Rich Opportunities...

-Weekly instructed and non instructed classes, workshops and demonstrations create community, educational opportunities and all ages multi-disciplinary advancement.  Examples include life drawing sessions, printmaking and painting classes, art demonstrations by professional artists and informational seminars and panel discussions.

-Weekly music and poetry showcase

-Meet & Greets

A Community Use Space...

Community members and groups will be invited to utilize the gallery and work space for meetings and to host events.  

-Local schools will be invited  to the gallery to expose children to the arts and the artistic process.

-Local non profit and art groups will be invited to  schedule ongoing programming.

-The exhibition space will be utilized as a “Training Gallery” for artists, curators and community members who are interested in learning about the business art.

A True Destination…

11:11 ACC members and guests will have access to co-working spaces with individual and shared desks, internet access/wi-fi and phone lines, printing equipment, office supplies, a small reference library and a coffee and tea bar.

An extensive retail gift shop will feature art prints, books, apparel and functional art created by 11:11 members, local and international artists as well as special limited edition merchandise per exhibit. 

The 11:11 facility will act as an event and a premier location for entertainment in the San Fernando Valley.  The venue will host a variety of events from music and dance and performing arts, open mic and spoken word nights to fashion shows, book releases and signings.   A true arts and community destination.    

A Time Bank and Community Driven Mission…

11:11 ACC will offer space to local artists to utilize as studio and working space.  The facility’s resources will be designed as a collaborative space where select artists can not only have a private studio to house supplies and work on independent projects, but are urged to trade knowledge, experience and techniques with peers.    As opposed to an institution where the professor teaches the student, peer led workshops would highlight each resident artist as the instructor as they train their peers and the public of their specific discipline.  Inspired by the time bank concept, 11:11 will offer subsidized studio space to artists who, in turn, offer free workshops to community members and local schools.
