In recent years, the local creative collective Bagavagabonds has hosted some of the best art-centric events in the city. This year, their popular Art Explosion has evolved into a three-city Art Migration that will hit Los Angeles tonight.

Tonight's event will feature music by local musicians Harriet, Sam Outlaw and the Drakes, with DJs BBZ (Sarah Chernoff and Max St. John of Superhumanoids) spinning tunes between sets. There will also be live art installations, screen-printing, an old-fashioned letterpress, interactive smart vehicle experiences (including a horn organ), a hosted bar and free haircuts. The Art Migration already passed through Austin on November 10, and it will soon be arriving in Portland on December 8.

One of this evening's highlights is the opportunity to bid on incredible pieces of art by local artists, including six large-scale pieces by Matt Maust of the band Cold War Kids. All art will be sold via silent auction with a cap of $100, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Room 13 L.A., a sustainable multimedia studio at Foshay Middle School in South Central Los Angeles.

The Art Migration (21+ only, free entry with registration) will take place from 7 p.m. - 1 a.m. tonight at 440 Seaton St. in Downtown Los Angeles.
