ART*: Tonight at 7 pm, Family hosts the launch of Overspray: Riding High With the Kings of California Airbrush Art. The book launch and exhibition will feature a talk, slideshow and signing by airbrush artists Dave Willardson and Charles White III along with Overspray author Norman Hathaway and LA art director Mike Salisbury. A large exhibition of vintage airbrush posters will be on display including Charlie White's extremely rare Star Wars poster. The book is a “comprehensive account of the rise of airbrush art, and of the equally bright and glossy Los Angeles culture in which it flourished during the 1970s.”

FILM: The Aero presents the Los Angeles premiere of Nick Broomfield’s Battle for Haditha tonight at 7:30. “It's a powerfully raw and plausible verite-style reconstruction of a skirmish during which a U.S. Marine was blown up and, in retaliation, 24 Iraqi civilians were shot.” Discussion follows the screening with director Nick Broomfield.
