If last month's epic cat-themed art show has left you hungry for more out-of-the-box eye candy, look no further than this summer's Made in L.A. 2014. Not to be confused with former Mayor Villaraigosa's fashion initiative, this FREE biennial series is a follow-up to 2012's rad debut and celebrates the work created by local artists. On view at the very active Hammer Museum from June 15 through September 7 and will include 35 up-and-coming talents selected by Hammer chief curator Connie Butler and independent curator Michael Ned Holte.
Catch a list of all the lucky art stars below, and look out for the museum's debut of their paintings, installations, sculptures, videos, photography and performances in just a few months. Let's hope the Hammer Store brings back that awesome merch shop filled with Made in L.A. T-shirts, hoodies and baby onesies (!) again, too.
