Directions

As some of you may know, we are two blocks east of Crenshaw, and are currently being impacted by the construction of the Metro’s Crenshaw Rail Line.  When travelling to our events, please try to avoid Crenshaw Blvd., between Vernon Avenue (N) and Florence (S) until further notice.  It is passable, but is subject to delays and lane closures.  We are advised by Metro that the construction will continue until sometime in 2019!! We will continue to update you here with useful traffic recommendations for visiting the IMA.

  • For those of you coming from the 405 Freeway, we recommend exiting at Manchester Ave, and proceeding East to Van Ness Blvd., and then turning left (N) to 54th Street; then take another left on 54th Street to go to 3210 W. 54th Street.
  •  For those of you coming from the N/B 110 Freeway we recommend exiting at Gage Ave, proceeding west to Van Ness, and then turning left (N) to 54th Street; then take another left on 54th Street to go to 3210 W. 54th Street.
  •  For those of you coming from S/B 110 Freeway, we recommend exiting at 51st Street, proceeding south on Flower to 54th Street, and then turning right (W) to go to 3210 W. 54th Street.
  •  For those of you coming from the 10 Freeway, we recommend exiting at Arlington, proceeding south to 54th Street, and then turning right (W) to go to 3210 W. 54th Street.

*** Current Traffic Update (5/20/17) – Crenshaw is totally closed between 43rd/Homeland & 54th Street. All side streets are impacted by the closure.  Traffic is heavy, please allow extra time for visits to the Institute of Musical Arts.

We do not expect this construction to impact the street parking normally available around our building. In the event it does, Metro has opened temporary parking lots close to the IMA building, which are shown below:
