Located on the campus of East Los Angeles College, the Vincent Price Art Museum's new facility, opening with the exhibition 'Roundtrip:  Eight ELAC Alumni Artists' in May, 2011, is the first institutional art space to serve the East Los Angeles area. VPAM is a cultural center that benefits the college and its community by offering significant exhibitions and by providing all of Los Angeles with the resource of a regional showcase.

Beginning in 1951, noted actor and collector, Vincent Price, donated art objects from his personal collection to ELAC, establishing the first “teaching art collection” owned by a community college. In 1957, the Vincent and Mary Grant Price Gallery — as it was then known — was founded. Even today, ELAC remains one of the few community colleges in the United States with the resource of a major art collection. Over the course of more than sixty years, the gallery space has expanded and the collection has grown to more than 9,000 objects.
