Now through Sunday, May 10th, sports-enthused eyewear brand Oakley is hosting a temporary hangout space on Melrose, not too far from the like-minded Fairfax District. Called Oakley in Residence, the conceptual pop-up is a see/shop/skate trifecta, offering a gallery (currently on display is "The Art Dump - Skate Artist Collective," which celebrates a group of artists responding to the "place of obsession" in LA skate culture), a custom eyewear station (guests can use an on-site iPad to create their frames on the spot), and a skate park (pro skaters are already taking advantage of the sweet ramp).
Swing by today to catch the finale of "The Art Dump" show, and stop by tomorrow, May 1st, to join iconic LA skate photographer Atiba Jefferson in celebrating the opening night of his week-long exhibition and activities that salute the heritage of photography within skate culture.
Oakley In Residence gallery is open Monday through Sunday from 11am to 8pm. The skate park is closed Monday and Tuesday, and open Wednesday through Sunday from 11am to 7:30pm.
