Pencil This In: CitizenGulf LA, Rare Views of L.A. & More
Before it closes this weekend, Barbara Thomason has an exhibit at the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena called "One Hundred Not So Famous Views of LA." As it sounds, the exhibit "represents views of Los Angeles that are less well known." We love stuff like this. The exhibit closes August 29th.
What happened five years ago this week? Hurricane Katrina did. Mix the recovery of that with the BP oil spill and here we are today, otherwise known as Citizen Gulf National Day of Action. LAist's Andy Sternberg is one of the organizers behind the Los Angeles-area version of the event, which will take place recently-opened The Central Social Aid & Pleasure Club (formerly the 14 Below space) in Santa Monica. There will be art, film, food and music (Big Moves, Le Switch, Hiram Rimmerm, Stranger Danger). 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., $10, 21+.
