Neighborhood: Venice

One of the topmost unique art venues in the whole of Los Angeles, Obsolete is a stunning amalgam of an antique store, a quaint museum and an exhibition space for present-day gems. Little known outside of the local community due to its very infrequent openings and relative autonomy from the local gallery scene, Obsolete is truly one of a kind place. The dark wood-paneled interior houses a permanent collection of various bizarre antique contraptions – unusual musical instruments, puzzling utensils, disquieting dolls and sculptures and other wicked hardware. An occasional photo or sculpture exhibition gracing Obsolete is well worth venturing out for (the dates for them can be tracked down on their website). These openings are eagerly anticipated by people in the know and are always held in style, catered by select local artisan eateries and wine sellers. -Jamie Zum
