|Live Art at LA Beatdown @ the Music Box|
Aug.5 promoting LA vs. War
LA vs War: Art for Peace in the Hope Era is a fine art project created by John Carr, and this year, it will memorialize the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The show originated in Los Angeles in April 2008 as the Yo! Peace poster show, which lasted four days and hosted 6,000 attendees. John Carr, a peace-loving Los Angeles-based graphic and printmaking artist, curated the original show which is now a touring anti-war poster exhibition entitled "Yo! What Happened to Peace?"

named "Andy" at the
Music Box exhibit...
|Interestingly enough, a few weeks |
earlier I had photographed
and posted work I found in
downtown by the same artist!
LA vs. War is defined as "part exhibition, part experience" and will showcase fine art, prints and posters, as well as interactive art demonstrations, workshops and "teach-ins." Exhibit-goers will have the opportunity to engage their own creative energy through activities like graffiti art, screen-printing and stenciling. You can even bring your own articles of clothing to print and customize. (This is a dream come true for someone like me who is always dying to reach out and touch the brushstrokes on canvas or the texture of a sculpture at a museum, but inevitably gets reprimanded by the curator for getting too close to the artwork!)
