We don’t care if the weather is freezing or scorching, there are way too many good events happening around LA in the next few weeks to stay indoors!
-Celebrate the life and work of pop artist Andy Warhol by visiting The Warholian, a new exhibition at the Royal/T, a cool café/art space in Culver City, that hangs some of Warhol’s most famous paintings next to those from other artists he influenced, including Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and Richard Prince. You may just feel inspired enough to go home and do something different with that collection of soup cans in your kitchen pantry, after visiting the show! [Flavorpill]
-Shhh…Are you way too old to be a secret Hello Kitty fanatic? Do you fawn over anything cute and/or glittery? If so, come meet other Sanrio-addicted Angelenos at the “I Heart Nerds Party!” on November 20th in Santa Monica. Not only will there be special music performances by 8Bit Weapon and ComputeHer and Yuki Shundo Dance Crew, but there will also be a costume contest and free limited edition Hello Kitty crown. (And, just this once, you won’t have to pretend it’s for your niece!) [Brown Paper Tickets]
-Lastly, fans of the late and legendary photographer William Eggleston shouldn’t miss a new exhibition of his work entitled, On the Road. Opening on November 13 at DNJ Gallery on La Brea, the show features over 40 signed, vintage photographs from the man that is considered to be one of the “most influential photographers of the last half-century.” You can also make it into an Eggleston-inspired day trip by also visiting LACMA’s William Eggleston exhibit.
