This Weekend: LA Art Weekend!

Eyy something cool to do, finally! This weekend marks the second annual Los Angeles Art Weekend presented, in part, by ForYourArt which is actually an amazing art resource for you Los Angelenos! This event promises to be a fun filled four days, kicking off tomorrow, April 2nd and ending on Sunday, April 4th. All kinds of shenanigans are taking place and I’m going to do my best breaking down the highlights for you:

THURSDAY, April 2nd:
5:00–11:00pm
Postopolis! LA (schedule and presentation video here)
(This is happening all weekend!)
“Postopolis! LA, a live five-day event of near-continuous conversation about architecture, art, urbanism, landscape, and design to be held in Los Angeles from 31 March to 4 April 2009. Six bloggers, from five different cities around the world, will host a series of discussions, interviews, slideshows, panels, talks, and presentations, fusing the informal energy and interdisciplinary approach of the architectural blogosphere with the immediacy of face-to-face interaction.”

This event will include conversations on architecture, urban design, music and art featuring BLDGBLOG (Geoff Manaugh), Subtopia (Bryan Finoki), ArchDaily (David Basulto), City of Sound (Dan Hill), We Make Money Not Art (Regine Debatty), and Mudd Up! (Jace Clayton). More info here.
