Get Out: Brew Beer, Debate Art Or Check Out Unique L.A. & Venice Biennial
DEBATE: What are the issues in art that really matter right now? Artillery Magazine is going to hash it out this afternoon at The Julia Dean Photography Workshops on 755 Seward Street. Some of the topics include whether the LACMA rock is a mineral or art, whether art museums are celebrity or culture centers and whether the art market is a boom or bubble. Round Four of the debate kicks off at 2 pm and goes until 6 pm. For more info, check out the poster for the event.
BREWING: Learn how to brew your own beer at the Craft and Folk Art Museum this evening. Award-winning homebrewer and CAFAM Board Member Greg Nylen will be your guide, and you'll also get to taste brews from homebrew clubs, including Pacific Gravity, Strand Brewing and Yeastside Brewers. There will be music, the galleries will be open and the Let's Be Frank hot dog cart will be on hand in case the booze makes you hungry. The event kicks off at 5 pm and goes until 8 pm. The presentation itself begins at 5:30 pm. It's $12. You can RSVP here.
VENICE: Today is the last day of the Venice Beach Biennial, which is a part of the larger Made in L.A. project. New artists and veterans will work on the boardwalk to create site-specific installations, live performances, sculptures and more. The biennial runs until 6 pm. For more information, visit the event website.
UNIQUE: Want to go shopping and support independent (and often local) designers and artists? Head over to Santa Monica's Barker Hangar to Unique L.A. between 11 am and 6 pm today. Tickets are $10. Check out our write-up on the event.
