Last Sunday, we attended the L.A Art Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center and had I realized the scope and size of the show, I would’ve arrived earlier and given myself more time to look at the displays. Unfortunately, we found ourselves practically running in the final minutes before closing, in order to avoid missing anything amazing. Wow, what a terrific mix of modern, pop culture, fun, and interesting exhibitions and displays of art, with immensely talented artists and craftsmen. It’s a show that I plan to see again next year, and spend the day there.
This art show draws a lot of celebrities in the Hollywood area. Although we were not there for opening night when a few stars were there, we did see Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong fame.
There was living art…and to be frank, this woman kind of freaked me out a little. I can just picture running into her in the dark and thinking it’s a man dressed in women’s clothing about to do something wicked.
There was an exhibition honoring Margaret Keane.
Some very unusual and amazing statues were on display. This is not a real kid below.
Nor is this really Rocky Balboa or Sylvester Stallone. That’s also fake meat, in case you vegetarians are freaking out.
I love the brilliance of these paintings.
Of course, the electronics age and emojis can’t be left out of the show.
Lastly, to give you an idea of the size of the event, there were rows and rows of artist booths.
I snapped dozens of photos but my suggestion is for you to go and view this show in person, it’s much better than what photos can show.
