About the Vincent Price Art Museum
East Los Angeles College’s Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM), the first institutional art museum to serve the East Los Angeles area, is a cultural center that benefits the college and its community by offering significant exhibits that would otherwise be unavailable, and by providing all of Los Angeles with the resource of a regional showcase.

Beginning in 1951, noted actor and art collector, Vincent Price, donated art objects from his personal collection, establishing the first “teaching art collection” owned by a community college, and one of the few colleges in the United States with the resource of a major art collection. The Vincent Price Collection contains over 7,000 pieces (with an estimated value of over $5,000,000), and includes art from Africa, Peruvian and Mexican artifacts dating from 300 B.C., North American Indian Art, and important works from the renaissance to the present day; A permanent gallery was built in 1958 to facilitate the display and storage of the collection, and was named in honor of Vincent Price. For many years, the VPAM’s unique exhibition posters have been appreciated by collectors all over Southern California, and as far away as New York and Europe, and are part of the poster art collections of many art museums.
