Henry Lovins and the Lost Hollywood Art Center School by Elizabeth Lovins
Established in 1912, the Hollywood Art Center School was LA’s first independent art school and one of its best-kept secrets for decades. Tucked away within a serene four-acre 1920s Spanish garden and estate along Highland Avenue near the Hollywood Bowl, the school ceased operations in 2000. In its final years, the school was in a severe state of disrepair, the buildings and grounds beautifully decaying within the picturesque setting of the Hollywood Hills.
