What is life without art, poetry, and imagination? If you feel a bit chained to your job and need a creative relief from your robotic lifestyle -- welcome. Discovery, learning, and expanding our imagination keeps us moving forward. What better place than Los Angeles for discovery? This will be an elite 'secret' group gathering the creatives of Los Angeles and those who want to discover its artistic landmarks.  We will get together weekly / bi-weekly to attend art exhibits and live poetry venues. Los Angeles has several remaining beat generation landmarks and live poetry cafes. We will also meet occasionally to create art and write poetry -- collectively.

Art: Downtown Art Walk, Culvery City Gallery Strip, Venice Gallery Row, La Cienega Gallery Row, MOCA, LACMA, The Getty (1&2), The Hammer, Craft and Folk Art Museum, Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, etc.

Poetry: Greenway Court Theater, Da Poetry Lounge, Tribal Cafe, Tuesday Night Café Project, Beyond Baroque Foundation & Literary Arts Center, Spoken Funk, The Last Bookstore, etc.
