Get Out: Easter Bunnies, LA Artists, Butterflies, Take a Hike
Chances are, if you were planning on doing something for Easter, your plans are nailed down already, underway, done, or family-only. Hey, it happens. Unfortunately, because it's Easter, there's a lot fewer events taking place today besides the usual mix of museum exhibits, bands playing, and plays running. If you're looking to get in on something hippity-hoppity, may we suggest the LA Zoo's Big Bunny's Spring Fling, grabbing at bite at Royal/T and seeing what they have up their sleeves for Easter, pigging out at the Biltmore (Easter Brunch 11:30-2:30), or taking a stroll around Descanso Gardens. Of course, you can always wait outside your favorite grocery or drug store for the Peeps and Cadbury Eggs to get marked down to 50% off and celebrate that way...
LA Artists, LA as Art
Two exhibits running right now offer a cumulative 20 Los Angeles artists and their work. "Nine Lives: Visionary Artists from L.A." at the Hammer is the fifth in the museum's biannual biannual invitational exhibition series highlighting work created in greater Los Angeles. See over 125 pieces in a variety of mediums by 9 artists covering 4 generations. Add 11 more to your LA visionaries roster by heading over to see the inaugural exhibition of the Annenberg Space for Photography, "L8S ANG3LES: 11 LA photographers" which features the diverse work of 8 world-renowned photographers as well as LA Times' staff photographers (8 + 3 = 11, see?). See LA through the lenses of Julius Shulman, Tim Street-Porter, Greg Gorman, Carolyn Cole, John Baldessari, and more.
