LA museum showcases velvet paintings

Chinatown's Velveteria is home to 3,000 works including portraits of Richard Nixon, clowns and a glow-in-the-dark Satan.

    It might not be hanging up in the Louvre but if it’s a velvet painting, you'll most likely find it at a hidden Los Angeles museum.

    Velveteria, the world’s only museum dedicated to black velvet paintings, is now home to 3,000 pieces of modern art, including portraits of Richard Nixon, creepy clowns and a glow-in-the-dark Satan.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Los Angeles.
