LOCA artists create artwork at ANGELS’ Stadium – Now on Auction!

August 9, 2023

LOCA Artist Paint at LA Angel's stadium image

On Wednesday, July 19, Hugo Rivera and Fernando Micheli created artwork in front of Angels fans during a 6 to 3 win over the New York Yankees!

A master of plein air painting, Micheli set up his easel on the terrace of the Diamond Club, capturing the surrounding scene in delicate brush strokes. Known for dashing off large canvases before a live audience, Rivera went higher up into the stands to give passersby a chance to see the artistic process in real time.

“It’s a way for artists to stay in contact with the public, earn a bit of money and keep art alive,” said LOCA Vice President Rich Fair. “I was looking for ways to expand the reach of artists, and it dawned on me there could be an opportunity there,” he said on Tuesday. “The idea is to get art out there, and I don’t see why we couldn’t go out to Angels Stadium. The Angels thought it fit very well with their mission.”

In a news release issued ahead of Wednesday’s game day, Angels Baseball Foundation President Dennis Kuhl expressed enthusiasm over the joint effort. “We are excited to partner with LOCA as they join us at Angels Stadium to capture the ballpark experience through art,” he said. “These one-of-a-kind paintings will be available for fans to purchase with proceeds to benefit both LOCA and Angels Baseball Foundation.”
