Tonight's 'California'-Themed Bagavagabonds Art Explosion to Raise Funds for Room 13 L.A.

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
Your donation today keeps LAist independent, ready to meet the needs of our city, and paywall free. Thank you for your partnership, we can't do this without you.

If you're still looking for something to do tonight but can't decide between art, food, charity and music choices, check out the Bagavagabonds Art Explosion, where you'll find all of the above. The theme for this Art Explosion is California, and scores of art pieces will be available for sale via silent auction, with prices starting at $10. All art and admission proceeds from tonight's event will go directly to Room 13 L.A., which mentors art students from South Central's Foshay Learning Center.

The students have been closely involved with this event. For the past six weeks they've worked on postcard and poster designs, and 35 of these pieces will be for sale at tonight's show. Said Izzy Holden of the Bagavagabonds, "We're pumped to be working with these students and 15-20 of them will be on hand at the event—helping with screen printing and assisting with the silent auction—giving the show a full-circle communal feel!"

The Art Explosion will take place tonight, June 18, from 7 p.m. - 1 a.m. in the Arts Continuum at 1947 S. Santa Fe Ave. in downtown Los Angeles. Street parking will be available on 11th St. and 15th St. The $12 entrance donation includes food, drinks, mini-golf, adventures in the Velcro photo booth, music and more.
