The Barnsdall Art Park foundation is hosting a series of screenings at the Barnsdall art park. Tonight (9/15/12) at 7:30pm they will be screening the 1985 Chevy Chase comedy “Fletch”. You can bring a picnic or if you’d rather not schlep a basket there’s a beer and wine tasting that starts at 5:30. Tickets for just the movie are $10, and tickets that include the tasting are $25. This looks like a great alternative to the crazy long lines and impossible parking of the Cinespia Cemetery Screenings.
Tickets can be purchased and more information can be found at the barnsdall website.
Here is the rest of this season’s calendar:
- Sept 15th – Fletch
- Sept 22th – Edward Scissorhands
- Sept 29th — Swingers
- October 6 – Gattaca
- Oct 13 – Sunset Boulevard
- Oct 20 – Laurel Canyon
- Oct 27 – House on Haunted Hill
It is difficult for me to express exactly how excited I am about the prospect of another rover landing on the martian surface — suffice to say it’s how I’ve started nearly every conversation for the past three days. Tonight is your chance to get in on the “start” of what is likely to be one of the most significant scientific expeditions in human history. The first set of rovers to land on mars provided us with strong evidence for a history of liquid water on mars. This latest rover, “Curiosity”, is tasked with exploring sedimentary formations to determine whether Mars ever provided an environment that would have been hospitable to the formation of life as we know it on Earth.
The mechanics of tonight’s rover landing are like something out of a mission impossible film. A descent from space into the atmosphere, a gigantic parachute, followed by a rocket-slowed descent, culminating in the lowering of the SUV-sized nuclear-powered rover onto the martian surface. This sequence is known as the seven minutes of terror:
If you want to watch coverage of the landing live, then I highly encourage you to head to the Griffith Observatory tonight.
From the Griffith Observatory website:
I just happened onto a pretty fantastic ongoing event for the artistically inclined. From their meetup page (emphasis mine):
“We are hosting lifedrawing and painting workshops Monday and Thursday evenings from 7 to 10 pm. Both evenings are twenty-five minute poses for uninstructed drawing. We are located at 4451 Kingswell Ave, at the Northeast corner of Kingswell and Hillhurst in the heart of Los Feliz Village. There’s a long driveway and we’re all the way at the back, through a little courtyard to a burgundy door. The donation is fifteen dollars per session on a pay as you go basis.”
I went last Thursday and was impressed by the space, general ability of the artists, and the dynamism of the model’s poses. This is an uninstructed workshop, and you’ll need to bring your own materials, but it’s a great opportunity to improve your life-drawing chops.
More information and photos (some are NSFW) can be found on their meetup page.
Update (6/25/12): I’ve been informed that the yarn bomber was not responsible for this particular piece. You heard it here first: we have at least two artists decorating the Berlin bear on a regular basis.
From an emissary to the artist:
Public art has hit new heights in Los Angeles, everywhere you look in LA it seems like someone has left their mark on a wall. Artists arm themselves with stickers, wheat pastes and spray cans. However, one particular vandal chooses to use wallpaper to express herself. This last Saturday, Berlin the Griffith Park Bronze Bear was adorned in a custom costume made entirely of wallpaper.
This anonymous and masked culprit wishes to celebrate Los Angeles using Princes & Crows wallpaper inspired by the city itself. Princes & Crows wallpaper is designed in LA by French export, Alix Soubiran and printed in the city as well. Outfitted in a band hat and drum, the uniform is accented with gold wallpaper. With his new getup, the bear is ready to march to the beat of his own drum. Attached to this email find images of the bear decked out in his new gear. You can also visit this public installation at Griffith Park, located at the Los Feliz Blvd. entrance.
From “Los Feliz” the show’s social media manager Rameel Raymundo:
