The Hammer Museum screens a double feature tonight of Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man and Incident at Loch Ness beginning at 7:30 pm. Herzog’s gripping docudrama centers on Timothy Treadwell whose passion for and dedication to grizzly bears in Alaska ultimately led to his death. In Incident at Loch Ness
Herzog sets out to the Scottish Highlands, while another documentary film crew is making a film about Herzog. “Shooting on a rented boat, tensions begin to rise as Herzog and his producer, Zak Penn, find themselves at cross-purposes on the black surface of Loch Ness. Things get edgier and more absurd as mysterious shapes begin to rise from the murky water.” All Hammer public programs are free, but tickets are required. Tickets will be available at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office one hour prior to start time. Limit one ticket per person on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6 pm.
There’s an art exhibit from the students of the Department of Interior Architecture at Woodbury University in Burbank tonight. The opening reception (that includes food + wine) begins at 5:30 pm tonight. The exhibit will be on display until April 7. Cabrini Gallery hours: Wednesdays-Saturdays from 12-5:30 pm.
Comic book fans should head over to the Skirball for the exhibit “ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938-1950,” which runs through Aug. 9. The exhibit explores the early years of the comic book format. “Visitors of all ages will learn how, in the midst of the economic and political turmoil of the 1930s and 1940s, comic books offered young Jewish artists the opportunity to express their talents through storylines and art—and ultimately gave America champions who shaped the values of an entire generation.”
