Module: COLOR

This March, the Downtown Art Walk is proud to present MODULE: Color, a special exhibit based upon the philosophy that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts". This show encourages viewers to deconstruct the work being presented to them and to carefully analyze details such as the brushstrokes that make up a portrait or the layers of paper cut-outs used to create examples of sacred geometry's presence in nature. This event, taking place from 6pm - 10pm on March 10th, 2016, will be curated by the innovative, Los Angeles based art collective, Kaleidokrew and will feature music by DJs nova bryant, and Deejay Zippa. Our monthly Art Walk Map, provided by the Los Angeles Times, will be available at the Art Walk Lounge and all participating galleries. Complimentary refreshments, courtesy of Perrier, will be made available to Art Walk patrons. A special booth by Verizon will also be present within the Lounge and will be offering exclusive, exciting prizes to event attendees.
