Update: Message from the owners of La Bodega
It is with great sadness to announce that we will be closing our doors at the end of this month. Our lease has come to an end and the rent was raised to an amount we can’t afford. The impact we’ve had, the contributions we’ve made to our community, the multiple, consecutive years being recognized as the best art gallery in San Diego matters not when we can no longer afford to work out of this space, a place that created value for all around us. Especially the property owners.
This is an ugly reminder of Barrio Logan’s current unaffordable reality for those wanting to have a space to present art and culture. It’s a sad reality that hurts. We put our life into making La Bodega what it is today and we are completely heartbroken that we have to vacate that historic building.
These past 6 years have been absolutely amazing and it has been a true honor to work with so many talented artists both locally and from around the world that shared their work with us over the years. We could not have done this without their beautiful contributions.
And to the community that we live and work in we give endless thanks and gratitude for your support. We appreciate and love all that you have given to us. Although La Bodega, in its current manifestation, may be coming to an end we are not going to stop doing what we do.
