We invite you to join us for a Brand style community picnic! This Meetup post is specifically for plein air painters that would like to join us for a lovely early afternoon painting the beautiful Brand Library!
About the event:
In conjunction with our current exhibit, Blind Courier, we're hosting a community picnic and recipe exchange, food trucks, a tour of the exhibit, and arts programming within Brand Park.
Blind Courier features 9 Los Angeles based artists and their work which reflects their notion of place and home. Alongside the exhibit is a project titled "Homesĭtē." Homesĭtē is an expansive travelling public participatory art installation begun in 1992. It encourages residents of Los Angeles to contribute recipes, stories, visual items and small tableaus, thus forming a collective perspective about the city. The Homesĭtē Recipe Exchange will be installed in Brand’s atrium gallery. Visitors are invited to express their connection to a locale – be it a neighborhood, city or country – through their recipes and stories about food.
We encourage you and your families to not only come participate in the recipe exchange and picnic, but also bring your painting materials and use the iconic Brand library as your inspiration!
