ESMoA is the brainchild of collectors Eva and Brian Sweeney. The exhibition platform embraces and encourages the city around it to share in evolving experiences based on the three pillars of artistic exchange: an artwork dialogue, a cultural exchange, and an ongoing artist in residence program. ESMoA exhibits sixteenth century works of art alongside contemporary art. It rises from a previously vacant lot in the restaurant district of downtown El Segundo and is designed to be provocative, fresh and agile a functional art space, as well as a partner in the community.
