Eat. Drink. Art. At the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery in Barnsdall Art Park!

Most Los Angeles locals are familiar with Barnsdall Art Park in Hollywood. The park is  home to  Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock house, weekly Farmer’s Markets and a variety of activities throughout the year. I was at Barnsdall Park myself last Saturday enjoying Taste of the Eastside, with great food and libations from a variety of local restaurants and vendors for the benefit ofthe Rose Scharlin School.  If you missed the fun, watch for it in early May next year. Entrance to the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art ParkAlso located on the park grounds is the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. The art gallery’s mission is to “promote, interpret, and present the art of emerging, mid career and established artists from culturally diverse South California”. What that means?  The 10,000 gallery is a great place to see a variety of art from area artists ranging from sculpture, photography, painting etc. as well as performance art and installation works. Amazing as it may seem, admission to the gallery is actually free. The gallery is open Thursday–Sunday from noon to 5 pm and on first Fridays from noon to 9 pm. Of course, behind any such endeavor you’ll find a group of volunteers working to provide funding and keep the operation open.

This was the second year but it was right around the same time last year. Start watching for it towards the end of April and next year you can enjoy it along with me and many others!
