Get Out: The Quick, The Painful and The Trivial
It's not just fishwrap! Artist Ellwood T. Risk's exhibit "Bad News" uses the front pages from the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times for his long-running series of newsprint-based works from both publications collected by the artist over the last twelve years. The opening reception is tonight from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Robert Berman Gallery at Bergamot Station, 2525 michigan avenue, Suite C2/D5 in Santa Monica.
Know your 1930's Los Angeles trivia? You can try your luck today at not one, but two rounds of trivia on the westside and then the eastside. The newly reissued "Los Angeles in the 1930s: The WPA Guide to Los Angeles" provides the impetus for tonight's trivia quiz created by game show champ Jerome Vered. Contestants can compete in the first round at the Hammer at 4 p.m. and/or the second round at Libros Schmibros in Boyle Heights at 7 p.m. Hammer and Boyle Heights scores will be combined to determine the ultimate champ, so you should attend both if you want to win.
Ever seen something on the wall of a gallery that you wanted inked on your skin right then and there? Check out the Crewest Gallery tonight, which is hosting "Quick and Painful" from 7 until 11 p.m. Last call for tats is at 10 p.m. Tattoo artists Joe Capobianco, Jime Litwalk and Dan Smith will be tattooing fans the night of the opening with their favorite designs chosen right from the wall. The gallery is in downtown Los Angeles at 110 Winston St.
Or you could say Fuck Yeah!
