Art for A Good Cause

If anyone in the LA area is looking for something fun to do tonight, may I recommend Art for A Good Cause: “Auction 9” Fundraiser for Public Arts HS #9
. You can read more about it here.

Featuring works by David Lynch, Shepard Fairey, Clayton Brothers, Betye Saar, from Luis Buñuel Archive, Eames Office, hundreds more.
 Benefits Downtown LA's Under-Served Youth attending LAUSD's HS #9 
HS for the Visual & Performing Arts / LAUSD #9

 You can see a slideshow here.

The theme of the show was La Lotería, and the idea was to reinterpret classic Lotería cards with a modern pop culture twist. So I couldn’t resist drawing Homer Simpson as El Borracho (The Drunk) in front of Moe's of course! Now if I had the time to do an entire set of Lotería cards Simpsons style, I would do Barney as El Borracho, but Homer is the much more popular character, and the goal of the auction is to raise money for the kids, so I figured Homer was the way to go!

Anyway, it’s tonight, Thursday, June 2, 6-8:30 pm. Hope to see you all there!
