      Posted December 2nd, 2011

      CRAFTED in CURBED Los Angeles:

      Looks like the developers behind Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station Arts Center will indeed bring their magic to two dilapidated warehouses at San Pedro’s Port of Los Angeles, the Daily Breeze reports. The idea is to turn Warehouses No. 9 and 10 into a marketplace–called Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles–where artists can sell their affordable pieces to locals, cruise passengers, and anyone else who makes it down to the Port.

        The creators of Bergamot Station Arts Center have entered into an agreement with the Port of Los Angeles to transform two 1940s-era warehouses into a bustling crafts center to be called Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles.  The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners today approved a 25-year lease agreement that enables Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles Ltd. to operate the marketplace along the heart of the San Pedro Waterfront, located near Cabrillo Way Marina and 22nd Street Park.

            Daily Breeze: “Bergamont Station developrs to open art studio/marketplace at Port”

            Posted December 1st, 2011

            CRAFTED in the Daily Breeze:

            Venice and Laguna Beach are renown seaside communities that cater to local artists.

            But San Pedro?

            By next year, the developers of Bergamont Station will open an art studio and marketplace inside a pair of vacant wood-frame warehouses at the Port of Los Angeles under a 25-year lease approved Thursday by the Board of Harbor Commissioners.

            “It’s not only the first commercial development at the port in years, but it’s also our first adaptive reuse of a warehouse facility for community use,” said Geraldine Knatz, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles.

            Dubbed Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles, the venue will offer affordable paintings, sculptures, carvings and other handicrafts directly sold by 500 artists sitting in open stalls – a setting reminiscent of a street fair.
