MID-WILSHIRE—Keanu Reeves and LA-based artist Alexandra Grant will be at the Art Catalogues at LACMA (5905 Wilshire Boulevard) this Sunday from 4-6pm to discuss their latest collaboration, Shadows, a book that captures Reeves's shadows and silhouettes through Grant's brilliant photographs, along with adjoining text. In addition to reliving all your '90s movie fantasies, make sure to get your book signed at the reception. If you don't have the book, buy one by sending an email to or call (323) 857-6587, otherwise, the event is totally free and open to the public.
