Good art makes you think. (Or at least scratch your head and ask, “wtf”?). This weekend’s ART LA 2009 promises to have plenty of both.

More than 60 galleries from LA and around the world will be exhibiting the work of their artists, including Eduardo Sarabia, Henry Taylor, Ruben Ochoa, Hirsch Perlman, Jeff Koons and Marianne Mueller. Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar and other venues throughout LA will play host to paintings, sculpture, mixed media, special installations, music, photography and film.

The weekend kicks off tonight with a preview cocktail reception to benefit MOCA - and lord knows it needs money. But for those who can’t cough up the $80-$200 for the benefit, the day and weekend passes are relatively affordable.
