Chinatown Art Nights
Los Angeles, CA (July 11, 2009) --Enjoy an evening of art viewing as you stroll the alleyways and courtyards of Chinatown, home to 32 of L.A.?s most cutting edge art galleries and some of the most talked-about exhibitions in the country. ?Chinatown Art Nights? is a quarterly series of free art walks along Chung King Road and the streets of historic Chinatown. Illuminated by lanterns and accented with the smell of incense, the self-guided walk promises a sense of history as well as the excitement of new discoveries.
Chinatown first attracted an underground community of art lovers, bargain hunters, and trendsetters a decade ago. These artistic pioneers have since opened boutiques, studios, and galleries here and have made the retro nightclubs trendy once again. Newly restored buildings with 40s era neon lighting and free weekly cultural entertainment in Central Plaza now enhance the attraction of the area. http://www.chinatownla.com/news.php?newsId=49

Fallen Fruit: Are You Happy To See Me?
Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions
6522 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028
The delightfully narrow-focused arts collective Fallen Fruit deals with, well, fruits. That?s it. Just fruits, and their political, social and cultural significance. After a balmy residency in Colombia examining the banana and its reign as the world?s most popular fruit, the artists came back to L.A. to stage their first ever solo show, uncomfortably titled ?Are You Happy to See Me?? Photographs and video installations paying homage to the banana and its many connotations will be accompanied by a boggling mound of 300 ripe ones. Attendees are encouraged to interact or ?photograph themselves playing with this often comical or suggestive fruit.? Note: ?Interacting? includes eating.http://www.artleak.org/
