The Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles is a professional art space that presents group and solo exhibitions in a variety of media. The Galleryâ€™s main focus is showcasing contemporary art that pushes the boundaries of form and subject matter in the context of national and international programming. Serving the local art community, the public, and Otis students and faculty, the Maltz Gallery presents emerging and established Los Angeles talent as well as international artists.
The Gallery is dedicated in honor of Benjamin N. Maltz (1901-1993), a local businessman and founding director of City National Bank, who was a supporter of many nonprofit art organizations. Maltz had a strong belief that those who are successful have an obligation to give back to the community. He passed this philosophy on to his children, one of whom is Elaine Goldsmith, a longtime member of the Collegeâ€™s Board of Trustees. Otis celebrated the involvement of the Goldsmith and Maltz families by naming its gallery in their honor.
