Art Show 2011 presented by Mr Brainwash in LA!

I visited the show just before closing yesterday.  It was overflowing with street art.  Literally.  it seemed as though paint and scrawled graffiti radiated from the warehouse.  The installation itself was huge.  More then four floors of the warehouse were open to the public.  Full of sculptures, automobiles, and appliances made art.  This was a concentrated example of the phenomena that is street art.  At times the senses are overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of detail.  Admission was free, as were the posters.  Mr brainwash and many of the featured artists were there signing posters.  here are a few of my favorites from the show. . .

A Birthday Beer

Since it was Kira’s birthday, we decided to met up with Kira’s friend Jenessa at her work, “The Grill.”  Known for it’s beer & tots, they have seen a boom in business since the movie “Napoleon Dynamite.”

Jenessa then led us on a whirlwind tour of the Tucson bar scene. Starting with the Taproom and ending up at Che’s.  Tucson is very much an art town. We explored some of this art in our travels. I only wish we had more time to explore this side of things
