Lydia Takeshita

Founder and Executive Director of LA Artcore for 40 years. Takeshita was a mentor and friend to many. LA Artcore and the Takeshita family certainly appreciate the kind words, encouragements, and condolences that have been sent in many forms as we share in this moment of reflection together.

LA Artcore would like to thank the Takeshita family.
