Other Coachella Alternatives...Art Walks Abound!
So we hear there a little festival in the desert this weekend. Big deal. Coachella...smochella. There's still plenty to do here in LA this weekend. Yesterday, we told you about these festivals and outdoorsy events. Now we want to add to your weekend options with a couple of arty outings.
The free Miracle Mile Art Walk starts at noon and runs until 10 pm tonight. There are more than 40 galleries participating in the Art Walk in and around the Miracle Mile/La Brea/Beverly areas and beyond. The museums on Wilshire will be open as well. Throughout the day, there will be special receptions, artist talks, tours and after parties. Check the schedule for complete details.
This Miracle Mile Art Walk is also collaborating with the Lucie Foundation for MOPLA (Month of Photographers Los Angeles) events to help celebrate 160 years of LA through the work of 160 photographers. There are a number of galleries hosting MOPLA events during Art Walk, including The Loft at Liz's, Voila! Art for the Modern Home and DNJ Gallery.
Just a little further east, the Brewery ArtWalk is being held today and tomorrow from 11 am-6 pm each day. More than 150 artists are opening their studios to the public. If you've never been to the huge complex along Main Street in Lincoln Heights, the Brewery houses 14 different buildings on 23 acres. The oldest of the buildings was first built in 1902 as an Edison powerplant. Admission and parking are free.
It's a gorgeous day in LA. Get out there and see some great art.
