The Art Center is located in Balboa park, it is a center of many galleries and studios. When we were there, the artist were very nice and happy to answer all our questions about their works.

The whole place is really built like a small village from the 1930s. I liked the Southwestern Artists Association's gallery, but the others are also great.

I was surprised how reasonable the prices were compared to other placed I've been to. You can buy some real art even from $10 up, it is the best place for getting valuable souvenirs.

Address:
In Balboa Park.

Price:
Very good prices.
