If you are looking for something cool to do this afternoon or evening, I highly recommend checking out L.A. Noir, a two-day art event in Echo Park. I went last night and really enjoyed the experience, where I picked up a piece of handcrafted jewelry.
The show is described as “the dark side of sunny California” and does not disappoint. The displays, all for sale, include paintings, photographs, jewelry, sculpture and more. Much of it is dark, some a bit twisted, and many pieces serve as love letters to Los Angeles, in particular Echo Park. The fact that the “gallery” is actually a gorgeous Craftsman home in the hills adds to the beauty and uniqueness of the event.
L.A. Noir continues today from 3pm-9pm at 1918 Lemoyne Street, Los Angeles 90026. You can also call 323.664.5043. Click here for a partial list of the 30+ participating artists.
