Tonight is the night, more specifically, The Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk and the inaugural launch party for ILLUMINATED LA, an artist collective in Los Angeles that is bringing awareness to all facets of art and not just art itself. VivaLAfoodies is so excited to be an active participant and Adam Rubenstein as co-Founding Father of ILLUMINATED LA along with friend & local renowned graphic and visual artist Seth “Meex” Wilder. We have both been working to the bone, literally to get this off the ground and now is our time to showcase and expose the vast talent of artists curating the best of their craft from Culinary, Visual, Musical, Graphical & Performance. Our kickoff event will take place tonight, 1.12.12 at Nola’s, A Taste of New Orleans in the Downtown Los Angeles Historic Arts District from 6pm-2am for an independent Art Mart & Swap Meet. The talented folks from our collective will be creating art and selling their works throughout the evening.
By the end of the day we had consumed enough food and drink to satisfy a small army. We also managed to have a nice tweet-up with the dineLA crew that included dineLA director Stacey Sun along with her entourage from Discover Los Angeles and Thirsty in LA. The day would’nt have been complete without a toast and a hug from our good friend “The Bikini Chef” Susan Irby and a few of our other foodie friends in the crowd that we ran into. Cheers to another great year of Food & Lifestyle events.
Viva LA Foodies was invited by Foodbuzz to attend the “Art In the Streets” and “Food x Film” presentation of the all new Levi’s film Workshop at the MOCA satelite museum at the Geffen Contemporary in Little Tokyo in LA this past Thursday.
