The Luckman Fine Arts Complex (LFAC) is a professional performing arts center that also serves as the main entrance to the campus of California State University, Los Angeles. LFAC stands on the Street of the Arts, a red brick and concrete esplanade linking the various parts of the Complex, with a series of fourteen arches framing a view of the San Gabriel Valley and Mountains beyond.

Built in 1994, LFAC has for nearly two decades brought the finest in music, theatre, dance, film and the visual arts to the San Gabriel Valley.  The facility contains three separate venues: the Luckman Theatre (seating 1,152), Intimate Theatre (a modular theatre seating 300), and an outdoor amphitheater for concert performances and other events on the Street of the Arts.

LFAC is home to the critically acclaimed Luckman Jazz Orchestra, which presents a series of concerts throughout the season focusing on the work of various iconic artists in jazz history.  The events calendar represents a diverse and carefully chosen assortment of major international artists in all disciplines of the performing arts.

The attached Luckman Gallery is a 3,600 square foot space that features exhibitions exploring the work of contemporary, often local artists, some created specifically for the space. Since opening in 1994 it has become one of the most respected contemporary galleries in Los Angeles.
