ART: Local contemporary artist Amanda Ross-Ho opens her new exhibition, Teeny Tiny Woman, today at MOCA Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.

PARTY: Summer’s here, so ‘tis the season for block parties! Head over to the Downtown Pomona Arts Colony at the 300 Block of 2nd Street in Pomona for the Moon Block Party, which features the local pop collective Fool’s Gold, acclaimed indie band Crystal Antlers and a host of other local independent artists.
