Instead of stressing in traffic during Carmageddon II (the Los Angeles 405 Freeway closure on Sept. 29-30), why not stay in your neighborhood and enjoy some art? Walk, bike or metro to an art event near you this coming weekend for ARTmageddon, an artful antidote to Carmageddon. More than 100 artists, art organizations and community partners have teamed up for ARTmageddon.

The contemporary art world converges in New York City this week for the annual Armory Show and other art fairs around Manhattan. I enjoy attending the New York art fairs each year, and here I am again, in search of engaging artworks for my clients.
The 2012 edition of The Armory Show art fair is scaled down in size from previous years, which I found to be a good thing. More meat, less fat!
Preview night of Art Los Angeles Contemporary was enlivened by an installation created with 25 tons of dry ice and glowing flares. Presented by Judy Chicago and Materials & Applications, the piece is a reinvention of Disappearing Environments, a 1968 work by Judy Chicago, Lloyd Hamrol, and Eric Orr.
