The Antebellum Art Gallery in Los Angeles is one of a few erotic art galleries in the US dedicated to Fetish Art. It was established in 2006 and is intended as a hybrid of artistic, cultural, and political iconoclasm. The Latin term antebellum means “before war” and refers to American culture at odds with political/religious/social agendas that threaten to blow the lid off its foundations at any given moment.
In 2008, the gallery hosted Fools For Feet , which featured, among other things, a foot worship workshop, stained glass art, paintings, ceramic sculptures and drawings devoted to the human foot. There is even a foot karaoke session in which lovers of feet got a chance to sing about related songs such as These Boots Were Made For Walking and Blue Suede Shoes.
