Books And Cookies at For Your Art This Weekend

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

This Saturday, For Your Art will be hosting a day centered around artist books, which sounds fascinating if you're into things like culture, contemporary art, reading, and whatnot. But let's get real: The what has us sucked in is the idea of free cookies. To keep everyone on a sugar high, the team at For Your Art asked LAist Food to pick our favorite cookies in Los Angeles, which will be offered for free throughout the day. We happily obliged, knowing that it would mean Angelenos would get to sample some of the city's best cookies -- free.

Each hour, one of 9 of L.A.'s best cookies will be swapped out for the nibbling. Offerings range from the high end, like the upscale nutter butters from Bouchon Bakery, to the nostalgic, like Diddy Reiss' snickerdoodle.

The arts organization has hosted some pretty cool events bridging the gap between food and art, including a food crafters collaboration featuring design-focused artisans, a free donut pop-up working in tandem with LACMA's screening of "The Clock," and a "round table"with L.A.'s donut purveyors that take an artistic approach to their craftsmanship.
