Since it appears the solstice wiped away June gloom for the time being, this looks to be a great weekend for getting out and about. Fortunately, there's plenty going on:

This Saturday is the opening of Supersonic at the LA Design Center, a group show by graduate students in art programs at eight local colleges. Participants include 139 MFA students from Art Center College of Design, California Institute of the Arts, Claremont Graduate University, UC Santa Barbara, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Diego and USC, as well as critical works by PhD, MA and MFA candidates from the same institutions.

The LA Design Center is located at 5955 South Western Avenue in Los Angeles. The reception will run from 3–8 PM, and Supersonic will be on display until July 16th.

Also opening Saturday afternoon, the Fahey/Klein Gallery presents "Nudes and Vintage Works" by photographer Bill Brandt, along with "Primal Images: Lumen Prints from the Amazon" by photographer Jerry Burchfield.

The opening is from 2—5 PM, and the show runs until August 20th. Fahey/Klein Gallery is located at 148 North La Brea in Los Angeles.

Or, if you're more inclined toward moving pictures, the Bicycle Film Festival is going on Friday and Saturday at the Vine Theater in Hollywood. The Festival celebrates all manner of biking—from hogs and Harleys to BMX and Motocross to road racing and bike messengers—and will be screening such films as Warriors: The Bike Race, Paperboys, Drag Race and Rumble Through the Bronx.

Showtimes vary, so check the website for details. The Vine Theater is located at 6321 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood.
