For many, the City of Angels evokes the glamour of Hollywood, famous movie stars in luxury mansions, idyllic beaches, swaying palms trees and the glorious golden sun of Southern California. But over the past few decades, Los Angeles has transformed itself into the creative capital of the world. The city hosts a diverse array of creative industries, including music, television, film, dance, entertainment, art, architecture, design, digital media, fashion, publishing and theater, becoming a cultural mecca boasting more than 300 museums and significant world-class cultural institutions.
