The Miracle Mile Art Walk will be held Saturday (October 22, 2011), from 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Much of the activity will be centered around the 5900 Wilshire Boulevard building, near Fairfax Avenue, and across the street from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
Here is information from the organizers:
L.A. based art and advocacy groups will be located in front of the Berlin Wall installation located at 5900 Wilshire Blvd. from 3-6pm, educating the public about the current state of murals in Los Angeles, recent efforts to create a mural ordinance, and what Angelenos can do to support their combined efforts, as well as the proposed Mid City West Arts District.
Muralist Kent Twitchell will be finishing the final phase of his segment of the Berlin “Wall Along Wilshire” from 3:30-6:00p.m., directly in front of 5900 Wilshire.
Also joining the Art Walk will be Isabel Rojas-Williams, Executive Director of The Mural Conservancy Los Angeles (MCLA) and Tanner Blackman from the City of LA Department of Planning. They will be joined by members of the renewed Friends of Mid-City West, a California nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in our greater Los Angeles community, as well as members of the DoART Foundation.
So, “do art,” and check it out.
