ART PARTIES & ART EVENTS IN L.A. for 2017 – [WEEK 17-18] * May 01 – May 07


[WEEK 17-18] * May 01 – May 07


All considered, a very calm week.

Suggestion for the week: On Saturday, try a No Car Opening Party evening: Leave your car at home, and get on the Gold Line from Union Station, so you can enjoy both the good art and the good vine… 😉 Get off at Memorial Park, and from there first go to Flower Pepper Gallery, 121 East Union Street, Pasadena (open from 4:30 to 7:30pm) and from there to the Armory Center for the Arts, 145 N. Raymond Avenue, Pasadena. (open from 7:00-9:00pm). Then hop back in the Gold line to the Pico Aliso Station (two stops after Union Station) and walk to Grey Projects, 1499 East 4th Street, Unit 111, Los Angeles CA 90033 (also open from 7:00-9:00pm and from there finish walking to the nearby Corey Helford Gallery, 571 South Anderson Street (enter on Willow), Los Angeles, CA 90033, open from 7:00-11:00pm [Most recommended Opening Party for the week, both for the Art and for the party itself!]

Culver City – Affair of the Arts: This is a big art event in Culver City, well worth attending. The event is completely free, and highly recommended!
Culver City has made a quite successful effort in support of the Arts, as the “Culver City Arts District” around La Cienega and Washington demonstrates well enough, and the following event is way above the run of the mill, as such events go. Over 50 artists, and a dance party on Friday.
