Summer is ending soon. So is the first ever Los Angeles biennial, Made in L.A. 2012.

You have just two weeks left to see Made in L.A. 2012, and I hope you will. I love recommending exhibitions that can give busy people like you a unique and enlightening art experience in a single encounter. Made in L.A. 2012 is one of those events.

Featuring sixty artists, it offers a snapshot of the current art trends and practices flowing out of Los Angeles, one of the most active and energetic art communities worldwide! The emphasis is on up-and-coming and under-recognized artists, and will debut new installations, videos, sculptures, performances, and paintings produced especially for the biennial.
