The California Women’s Law Center and the Women’s Sports Foundation are hosting a press conference to announce the “V is for Victory. So is IX.” Title IX campaign in California. Current undefeated Super Middleweight Boxing Champion of the World, Laila Ali, will kick off the event and participate in a press conference and softball game with local girls from Miguel Contreras Learning Complex in Downtown LA, starting at 11 a.m. Attendees will receive information packets about Title IX and will have opportunities to share their personal stories with the campaign team.
Remember, it's LA Arts month! So how about taking in an art exhibit opening, like the one tonight from 5-7 at the Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica for Amy Bennett's show "At the Lake." Some of Bennett's other recent work is her series of paintings that look exactly like miniature models of homes and neighborhoods--amazing stuff!
Get Arty, Part II
Another cool show opens tonight in Santa Monica. This is over at Terra Galleria Artworks in Bergamot Station, and it's the work of Santa Cruz-based photographer Ted Orland in a show called "Scenes of Wonder and Curiosity", a retrospective of his quirky and insightful work. Orland's favorite tool of his trade? A $10 plastic camera! The reception is from 5-9 p.m. and the show runs until Feb. 28.
Revolve Clothing is hosting a trunk party this afternoon to celebrate the launch of Alex and Chole's line of wedding rings called "Holding You Forever." They will have a full retrospective of the A&C line with current and archival jewelry and accessories as well as the new t-shirt collection, the wedding rings and special black label Alex and Chloe "grab bags" filled with A&C pieces, weird vintage finds and other surprise goodies. It's all at the Revolve store at 8452 Melrose in WeHo from 3-8 p.m.
Get Free Pinkberry
Just in time for the Santa Anas to warm us up, Pinkberry has something for free that might cool you down. It's Pinkberry's 4th anniversary (really, 4 years?) and it's going to be celebrated this evening at their original location in West Hollywood (on Huntley), where they will be giving out free swirls with all the toppings from 5-7 p.m. Meet, eat, and mingle, and wish the infamous FroYo emporium a happy 4th.
Other Things to Do: Take part in ANSWERLA's protest march, drop $10 on a drop-in workout at SkySport, recycle your old nail polish in exchange for a mani or pedi, hit up day two of photo l.a., eat a pie in memory of the founder of Marie Callender's, or do your research to see whose side you're on in LA's ongoing cupcake wars.
