Dave Tourjé has a lifetime of achievements as an artist, and is now featured in the LA Aboriginal film by Daniel Lir and Bayou Bennett.
He paints, draws, sculpts and even creates furniture.
Prompted by his 1998 purchase and renovation of the Nelbert Chouinard house in South Pasadena, Tourjé began researching the history of the Chouinard School of Art, which later evolved into the California Institute of the Arts.
The Chouinard Foundation was founded in 1999 by Bob Perine and Dave Tourje, after Tourje purchased the home of Nelbert Chouinard - the founder of the original Chouinard School of Art in 1921.
The Chouinard Foundation's purpose was to illuminate the legacy of Chouinard and bring it to public consciousness, whether by mounting major Museum shows, starting an art school, partnering with the City of LA or presenting a feature-length documentary film.
