ReVisions of LA with Elana Melissa Hill, David Festa, and Allison Miller
November 6, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
06 November 2011 1 – 4 pm
ASAP @ LACE
LACE is located in the heart of Hollywood, an ideal place to observe and contemplate the collision of Los Angeles — its intricate networks hum with activity as resources are transferred and spaces are reconstructed through use or development. ASAP’s 2011 Re-Visions of LA drawing workshops will build conversations around how our urban environments are constructed and what that means to our every day lives. Each month a new group of artists will spend an afternoon at LACE providing free drawing classes.
All levels and ages are welcome as we talk about Hollywood while drawing our surroundings.
All workshops are free, and all materials will be supplied.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
David Festa is a conceptual artist. His ongoing project, Tequila Sunrise, is an expanding conglomerate of 2D work, sculpture, action, and performance aimed at highlighting the influence of soft power on human states of being. An S.C. native Festa’s use of everyday objects directly reference experiences and observations he had while growing up and now living here. He sees this distillation of S.C. culture as a “…precursor of what’s to come globally brought on by a cultural condition of leveling through technology”…and sees T.S. as his version of having a “social practice.” David works in a variety of mediums consistently including everyday objects. He received his MFA in 2011 from Claremont Graduate University. He graduated from CSULB with a BFA in 2005. For more information visit davidfesta.webs.com/
