Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

ART: LACMA is hosting an exhibit featuring the works of Caravaggio and others who have picked up the baton in Italy, Spain, France and the Netherlands into the late 17th century. It opens today. For more information about the exhibit, visit LACMA's website.

DYE: Today Laurie Dill of Your Local Hive and Sasha Duerr of the Permacouture Institute in San Francisco are partnering up for a “Dinner to Dye For” workshop.

The workshop and dinner costs $125, and it's being held at the Peter Fetterman Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica. Visit the event's Facebook page for more information and to reserve. You can also e-mail for more info. For more weekend culinary events, check out our round-up.
