“velvet painting museum”
If you were alive in the 70s, chances are you’ve had a parent, grandparent, or family member who has hung a gloriously tacky piece of velvet art on their wall. More than likely it was a portrait of one of three things: dogs playing poker, Elvis, or Jesus. Thankfully the fuzzy fad died off sometime in the 80s, but at Velverteria, it's still alive and well and… hanging on every conceivable surface. Originally the Velverteria was a Portland staple, but in 2010 the owners Carl Baldwin and Caren Anderson packed up shop and moved all of their 3,000+ works of velvety art to abandoned shop in the Chinatown district of downtown Los Angeles, and that’s where you can where you can find it today. Their new location has new additions, which include the Naked Lady Room, the Hall of Elvis, a vx mysterious room that can only be unlocked if you ask, a portrait of Anderson Cooper in a thong, and the Unicorn Garden of Good and Evil. All and all there are 420 pairings currently on display at the Velveteria, with more and more additions planned for the near future. -Roadtrippers Velveteria is a velvet painting museum curated by owners Caren Anderson and Carl Baldwin.
