Angelyne Is Throwing Her Own Over-The-Top Art Show In Hollywood

There's going to be an art show dedicated to one of Los Angeles' finest treasures: Angelyne. You know Angelyne. She's a mysterious actress, model, painter and singer who you've probably noticed driving herflashy, pink Corvette around Hollywood. She became something of an L.A. icon after taking out a series of billboards promoting herself in the '80s.

September 19 is the opening party for Angelyne's art show at the Museum of Digital Art (MODA) in Hollywood featuring a number of Angelyne's works, which will be available for purchase with prices ranging from $100 to $10,000. Complimentary pink champagne and cake will be served, and you'll also have the chance to buy Angeline merchandise. Haven't you always wanted an Angelyne t-shirt?

There will also be a raffle where, "Angelyne will randomly select 22 winners for the future rides and 1 lucky loser to wash her legendary 'Vette!"

Nikki Kreuzer of Offbeat L.A.—a sponsor of the art show—recently did a video interview with the elusive Angelyne for L.A. Beat. Naturally, Angelyne kept her now trademark fan over her face during the interview. In a baby doll lilt, she talks about her artwork—mostly drawings of herself, occasionally nude—and her time spent playing clubs on the Sunset Strip. Of course, her answers are all distinctively evasive.
