You will have the opportunity to meet the artists and preview their work-in-progress. Visit the event page for directions and more details.

OUTDOORS: Go on a hike at the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve to discover the signs left by the wind, water, and wildlife that tell stories of life in the park. The hike begins at 4pm and will last approximately 2 hours. Meet at the Victory Blvd. entrance trailhead to begin this moderate hike. For more details visit the LA Mountains’ Facebook calendar.
