From the photogenic Broad museum to Tappan Collective's (soon-to-end) Culver City takeover, art aficionados have much to love about their city. Over in Downtown, Show + Tell Projects is bringing a rotating roster of inspiring LA artists and makers with a shoppable concept gallery.
Housed in Little Tokyo's Brunswig Square, the 4,000-square-foot hybrid boutique "is a new pop-up concept that brings together the worlds of contemporary art, design, and wellness." Expect an ever-fresh showcase of minimalist-cool arts d'objects and more every month, starting with a special installation by Japanese ceramist Shoshi Kanokohata and furniture designer Taidgh O’Neill as par of the LA Design Festival.
Repping LA is new bag brand High Density, home textiles label Matson + Palmer, designer Rion Suarez's handmade wood mirrors. In addition, the space serves as the HQ for women-powered Creative Collective LA, which will host a range of inventive workshops and events, like tarot readings, guided watercolor meditations, shibori dyeing, and much more.
The concept shop is toasting its digs this Thursday, June 23rd, with an artsy-cool grand opening party. Swing by from 6 to 9pm for cool company, sips, and more; get on the list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
