MEATGRINDER is a youth oriented resource group and social communion for art in the central Los Angeles area that builds contextual conversations around a place for teens in the art world and vice versa, and is free to join. Originated in the Winter of 2016/2017, MEATGRINDER organizes bi-weekly visits to artists’s studios, galleries, museums, as well as art workshops in different mediums and teen art salons.

In June and July of 2017 they were in residence at The Shed Echo Park where they held their first exhibition Something New, Always Better.
