The Cotsen Memorial Endowment Fund was established in 1979 in honour of the late JoAnne Stolaroff Cotsen. A dedicated volunteer and supporter of arts education, she was one of the founding members of Friends of the Junior Arts Center (FOJAC), which is now Barnsdall Arts. The Cotsen Memorial Fund provides an extended working, creative experience with artists of great stature to inspire talented young students.

Located at the crest of Olive Hill overlooking the city of Los Angeles, Barnsdall Art Park had its beginning in the early 1900’s when Aline Barnsdall came West with plans to develop a theatre company. When Aline Barnsdall donated the Park and its Frank Lloyd Wright designed structures to the City of Los Angeles in 1927, she wished to provide an accessible arts center, incorporating and preserving the famous Hollyhock House as a vital component. The spirit of Barnsdall’s intention was to maintain an active arts centre for the community was assured longevity.
