Not many things are cheap, much less free, in Beverly Hills. When it comes to art, Beverly Hills Art Show rolls out the red carpet. Spanning four blocks on Santa Monica Boulevard, the semiannual Beverly Hills Art Show is a free public art event of two hundred and fifty vetted artists from across the country showcasing photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics and traditional prints.
The Spring Show, May 19–20, 2012, features the curated exhibit Landscape and the Los Angeles Imagination with photographers Austin Hargrave, Gray Malin, and Martin J. Waterman and painter Kris Cunz. As a tribute to LA’s complex extremes, the exhibit will highlight the decay and glamour of Hollywood, a pictorial essay of downtown LA and contemporary Los Angeles renditions.
Unlike many art openings, the Beverly Hills Art Show is family friendly with art demos, food trucks, beer and wine gardens, kids’ art stations and live music. Can’t make to it to the Spring Show? The Fall Show, featuring the Anime, Animated, Animation exhibit, takes place October 20–21, 2012.
