Thirty-five years ago, LACMA commissioned five photogs—David Alexander, Lester Sloan, Annette Del Zoppo, Peter Kredenser, and Don Peterson—to chronicle LA street style, culminating in the exhibit 'LA Flash.' The museum is revisiting the project once again, with the same name and a shutterbug fest this Saturday, September 6 from 8pm-11pm. The original 'LA Flash' will be projected outside, and photographers from Wireimage will be on hand taking attendees pics to capture current street style, which will then be added to the museum's archives at lacmalaflash.org. DJ, art tours, book signings and more to round off the night. $10/ticket.
