Get Out: Crafts, Stooges & Carlos Bunga
CRAFTS: You know about Black Friday and probably Small Business Saturday by now, but if you want to go the crafty, local route in your gift-giving, you can check out the Holiday Global Bazaar at the Craft and Folk Art Museum on the Miracle Mile. From 10am until 4pm today (and next week, too) you can check out the work of artists, designers and vendors showing off their handmade goods. The museum is at 5814 Wilshire Boulevard and for more information visit its website.
INSTALLATION: An installation by Barcelona-based Portuguese artist Carlos Bunga open today that makes use of cardboard, packing tape and house paint. He calls it an abstract painting in three dimensions. For more information and pictures of the installation, visit the Hammer website.
SLAPSTICK: It's time for the annual after-Thanksgiving Stooge-Fest at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. The two hours of slapstick this year includes BACK TO THE WOODS (1937), GOOFS AND SADDLES (1937), MUMMIES DUMMIES (1948), HIGHER THAN A KITE (1943) and WEE WEE MONSIEUR (1938). Tickets are $15 and there will be shows at 2pm and 7pm. For more information, visit the theater's website.
