Since 1989, CARS has been breaking down barriers between the public and the arts. It offers Los Angeles artists and artists visiting the area guidance and access to the local resources they need for their work and for reaching new audiences. CARS also consults on the production of events in public venues and on the creation of new public spaces for the arts in urban settings. CARS maintains a state-of-the-art database of over fifty-seven thousand artists, arts organizations, venues, and audience members. This contemporary and constantly updated database is used to provide mailing lists to artists and as a networking tool. In addition, CARS has published two resource guides for artists: Doing It Right in LA (1990) and Southern California Performing Arts Venues (1993). CARS is not a collecting organization.
