Happy New Year to all our clients and loyal blog readers! Although we enjoyed the holidays, we’re glad to be back in the office and are looking forward to a great 2011. In honor of January being LA Arts Month, we’ve rounded up the most interesting cultural events happening around the city this week to help you (and us) get back into the swing of things.
-Over on Hollywood Blvd, the clothing store Confederacy is hosting an exhibition of famed music photographer Mick Rock‘s work to coincide with the release of his new book, Exposed: Faces of Rock n’ Roll. Over 250 previously unseen and unpublished photos of music legends like Lou Reed, Blondie, Iggy Pop, as well as more contemporary idols like Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys will all be on display until March.

-You don’t have to be a fan of geometry to enjoy the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art’s newest exhibit, Wally Gilbert’s Geometric Series: Squares and Triangles. What sounds like a homework assignment is actually a stunning and colorful series of digital art by a Nobel Prize winner-turned-photographer. [LACDA]
-Lastly, if you want to start the year off laughing, then head over to the Zephyr Theater on Melrose Avenue this Thursday. The comedy club is hosting 50 First Jokes, a show that features fifty of LA’s funniest comedians sharing the first joke they wrote in 2011. [Zephyr]
