Re: Art Crawl X This Weekend, Wanna Go?
Cool! I'm totally in and excited to see you this weekend too! Yeah I totally heard all about Art Crawl X and am excited to check it out. Isn't it something crazy like over 25 galleries and stores all around Echo Park, Silverlake, Los Feliz and Atwater Village are participating and holding shows and exhibits and stuff? And like at night some are having bands perform and tattoo stations and I heard that maybe that crazy indie-puppet guy might show up.
Since you live over that way, why don't I drive over from the Westside Saturday and we can grab food somewhere and head out on foot to check everywhere out. Or on bike. I hate driving on the weekends! I think you have two bikes already, but if other people want to join us Bike Oven is donating bikes that we can use to get from one location to the next. You just have to give them something to hold onto while you borrow the bikes during the day. You want to start mapping out our route since you know the area better? Here's the map.
You know me! I'm always up for checking out new places and I love the whole art insurgence all around Los Angeles and especially the vibe over on the Eastside (which is why I'm moving there in a few months, well at least on a temporary "test drive" basis, can you believe I'm actually taking the plunge!) I think this will be a great way to find some great hidden gems and let's make new friends! I want to hear about the places everyone else loves over there to put in back pocket to check out later.
I'm also really interested in maybe buying a piece of art. I just bought my first piece of original art this past summer and I used to be so intimidated but Jonny Coleman from Found Gallery is all about making art affordable and available to people of all ages and incomes and so let's keep an eye out for things to buy.
I hear you, there has been so much going on lately! But don't LA flake on me! You know once you get out there it will be a blast. Touch base with me about tonight. I'm going to try and head over there, but I also kinda wanted to go to the Good Party at the Natural History Museum and a bunch of my girls are going to GenArt Party at the Peterson Museum (you have to RSVP to both by like noon today so get on it!). But definitely tomorrow and Sunday.
Can't wait to see you!
