The Santa Monica Museum of Art presents Building the Love House: Using Art for Social Change in Watts tonight at 7 pm. Artist Alexandra Grant and designer Mike Niemann discuss their collaboration on the Love House with Edgar Arceneaux, Director of Watts House Project (WHP). “Grant conceived of the Love House - placing a sculpture of the word "love" on the roof of the Cerant family's home on 107th Street - as a lightning rod to draw attention and resources to the community across from Watts Towers in South Los Angeles.” Admission is free, but RSVPs are required. Seating is at a first-come, first-seated basis. RSVP required.
The MarchFourth Marching Band (“M4”) is a “quirky, funky instant party of a group whose twenty-five odd members make, sew, build, drive, design, choreograph, compose, and mix everything themselves.” This DIY spirit is found in their latest album, Rise Up, which will be released next month. Tonight at 10 pm, M4 plays at The Edison.
