Opening Reception on Fri 4/29 @ 7-11 PM at Angel City Brewing
Nearly 25 internationally known artists – many included in MOCA’s current “Art in the Streets” show – are premiering original works produced on 10x12 wood panels in “Street Brewed: An Exhibition of Contemporary Street Art,” the inaugural presentation of Angel City Brewing’s new Downtown Los Angeles art space. New York-based Ron English created “X-Ray Guernica” and Shepard Fairey installed a mural from his current series depicting sly visual commentary on the apotheosis of Ronald Reagan in American political mythmaking.
Expected to rotate during the exhibition’s run, the current artist roster for “Street Brewed” includes ABCNT, Lady Aiko, Augor MSK, becca, Cern, Cryptik, Dabs Myla, D*Face, Easo, Ron English, Eye One, Shepard Fairey, James Haunt, Logan Hicks, How & Nosm, JR, Kid Zoom, Phil Lumbang, Mear One, Ernesto Yerena Montejano, Nomadé, Saber, Swoon, and Tanner.
“Street Brewed” is on view free of charge at Angel City Brewing from April 29 to July 10 during the brewery’s operating hours of Thursday and Friday, 5 p.m. to closing; and Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m. to closing. Pints of locally handcrafted beer by Angel City Brewing are only $5 during the exhibition’s run. The opening reception also includes live painting by becca, DJ music, and food trucks. The exhibition was produced by Angel City Brewing with support by the Los Angeles Downtown Arts District Space (LADADspace) and with coordination by Lahoda Fine Arts in partnership with a legendary, but anonymous member of the street art scene.
