First U.S. Flagship Location for Arte Museum Coming to Santa Monica Place

48,000-square-foot immersive art phenomenon to replace former ArcLight Cinemas; museum opening set for late 2023

A 48,000-square-foot immersive art museum is coming to Santa Monica Place in the former ArcLight space. 

This week Santa Monica Place operator Macerich announced that the first U.S. flagship location of Arte Museum, a global art and technology phenomenon, is coming to Santa Monica Place.

“We are very pleased to welcome Arte Museum, the internationally lauded media art exhibition space, to Santa Monica Place,” said Cory Scott, Executive Vice President, Asset Management, Macerich. “The immersive, experience-driven Arte Museum is an excellent fit for Santa Monica Place and provides a terrific example of how Macerich consistently works to evolve the retail, dining and entertainment offerings in each of our markets to match consumer preferences. This new use represents the first executed lease in our planned repurposing of the former Bloomingdale’s box, and we look forward to announcing details on the other uses – including high-end fitness – for the remainder of this exceptionally well-positioned space.”

Arte Museum, also opening in Las Vegas in 2023, is planned and produced by world-class digital design company d’strict. It is Korea’s most popular media art exhibition space, with over 3.7 million visitors since its 2020 debut. d’strict has left a notable legacy with Live Park, the world’s first 4D art park at KINTEX Ilsan Korea. The experience includes holograms, giant media façade walls, 360-degree interactive theater and kinetic sculptures. They are also the creative force behind acclaimed public art projects such as “WAVE” at K-Pop Square in Seoul and “Waterfall-NYC” and “Whale #2” in Times Square NYC.
