What’s happening in the arts around Los Angeles this month, the last month of the year? Well, there is always a lot going on. Too much to mention everything. Therefore, here some highlights:
The Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, always has many wonderful programs and is always worth looking into for a great afternoon in the arts. The BOTERO art exhibit is CLOSING THIS SUNDAY and whoever hasn’t seen it yet and loves Botero or Latin American art should find a way to see it. “Latitude” the other Latin American art show at the Bowers is still open until January 2010. This Sunday is FREE admission to all exhibits!
For more cultural events at the Bowers look under Resources “Christmas 2009”
In the Riverside Art Museum one can see what old car wreckages can turn into. Michael Kalish, “Rust and Renaissance”
opens tonight December 5, 2009 with a reception from 7-9pm. Kalish’s most recent work, was created entirely from old and sometimes rusted car parts including tailgates, hoods and auto bodies. Visitors to the museum will be greeted by a crashed car sculpture that sprouts powerful roses out of its wrecked auto body. Inside the museum, dozens of sculpted roses abound including wallwork and freestanding sculptures.
In the mood for some serious modern art, then visit Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects in Culver City, LA. The gallery of German gallerist Susanne Vielmetter is featuring the work of Sean Duffy. His exhibition at the gallery offers something for everyone: Painting, sculpture, collage, audio.
