Brentwood Art Center Turns 40! – North of Montana Real Estate

MONTANA AVE — The Brentwood Arts Center is turning 40 and it’s ready to party.

The Center plans on celebrating B-I-G with a three-day fiesta including a display of its students’ work, hands-on art projects and live demonstrations by teachers.

“It’s our 40th anniversary, so we’re making a bigger deal than ones in the past,” said the school’s director David Limrite. “It’s the time of the year that we celebrate the achievements of our students, and have the opportunity to share with the community.”

The center was founded in 1971 by Ed and Linda Buttwinick in response to demand from parents who offered up space and pupils to Ed Buttwinick during a 1970 strike by Los Angeles school teachers.

The center will open its doors from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10 and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11. Admission is free. For a detailed list of faculty demonstrations, by teacher and time, visit
