06 Aug ARTOPIA EVENT LA
The third annual LA Weekly‘s Artopia will be held on Thursday, April 30, 8-11 PM in the Arts District at The Container Yard, featuring live art, live music, performance-based fashion, and more. This year’s immersive art experience is curated by none other than renowned art critic and writer Shana Nys Dambrot. With more to come, she’s gathered an amazing array of artists to participate, including Victor Wilde and his Bohemian Society, Mud Baron, Debi Cable and her 3D Art Gallery, Mikael B. Design, interdisciplinary artist Amy Kaps, Marcus Kuiland-Nazario, and KCRW deejay Jeremy Sole.
In addition to the immersive art experience, Artopia will offer guests hand-crafted cocktails, shaken and stirred by the city’s most respected bartenders. A curated selection of Los Angeles’ hottest food trucks will on hand to enhance the evening by selling their signature dishes to hungry art aficionados. Last, but not least, new to Artopia this year is a special area devoted to vendors and artists who are showcasing and selling unique and handcrafted art and gift items. Produced by WeAreDLTA (a collaboration between Edgar Varela and Melissa Richardson Banks), the event’s first Artisan Village features an invited group of 12 local vendors.
Admission is limited to only 1,500 guests so buy your tickets NOW while they are still available and still only $30 (prices go up weekly until the event is sold out!)
