Get Out: A Temporary Skyscraper, 'Rigoletto' At the Hollywood Bowl & More
ARCHITECTURE: Today is the opening day for a large-scale, quasi-legal, temporary building opening up at One Colorado in Pasadena. Small Skyscraper by artist Chris Burden is a building that exploits a loophole (that has now been closed) that allows buildings to be built without a permit if they stayed within 400 square feet and were under 35 feet high. It will be on view through November 11, 2012. For more information about the piece, visit the Armory Center for the Art's website.
CLASSICAL: Tonight you can head over to the Hollywood Bowl to listen to Gustavo Dudamel conduct Verdi's Rigoletto. (See our write-up here.) The performance begins at 7:30 pm and will feature baritone Željko Lučić, as a hunchbacked court jester doomed by a sinister curse. For more information, visit the Hollywood Bowl site.
FILM: Tonight Los Angeles Filmforum will be screening the films of Sarah J. Christman at the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian in Hollywood.
