Oh, look! Oh…Banksy. Larger than life.
Day: May 21, 2018
I’m typing this from D&A’s house on the 22nd because my &*%^internet has been down for two days and won’t be back until (assuming all goes well) tomorrow. GRRRR.
I and The Cousins Nancy and Sharon had a downtown outing today. We parked at Beyond The Streets and walked to the San Antonio Winery for lunch. It was about a 10 minute walk across the LA River.
…and here’s the entrance to Beyond The Streets.
From the website: “ORIGINAL WORKS FROM SHEPARD FAIREY, REVOK, FUTURA 2000, RETNA, LADY PINK, DASH SNOW, C.R. STECYK III, GUERRILLA GIRLS, BARRY MCGEE, CHAZ BOJÓRQUEZ, MISTER CARTOON, LEE QUIÑONES, MARIPOL, FAILE, SWOON, EDDIE MARTINEZ, INVADER, RISK, KENNY SCHARF, JENNY HOLZER, HAZE, FELIPE PANTONE, ANDRÉ SARAIVA, GORDON MATTA-CLARK, STEPHEN POWERS, TODD JAMES, CRASH, DAZE, MARTHA COOPER, TAKI 183 PLUS DENNIS HOPPER, TAKASHI MURAKAMI, MARK MOTHERSBAUGH & MANY MORE.”
There’s a sweet little urban garden in the parking lot but the exhibition itself was HUGE. There were two or three, maybe four GIANT warehouse spaces (40,000+ square feet with soaring ceilings) full of interpretations of street art.
I did totally love every minute of it although the same cannot be said for my companions. Check out their website if you’re interested.
