A few months ago Offbeat L.A. for the LA Beat was fortunate to get the first scoop on writing about Velveteria, the newly opened velvet painting museum in Chinatown. Read the article here: offbeat-l-a-some-velvet-morning. The owners, Caren & Carl were so interesting and full of life, that we knew we had to return to do an Offbeat L.A. video piece about this fascinating museum. Watch our 4-minute video here and make sure when you visit that you tell Caren & Carl that Offbeat L.A. sent you… Enjoy!!!
