LA Weekly presents Artopia at The Container Yard in DTLA! Join us Thursday, April 30th, from 8pm–11pm for LA Weekly's celebration of the vibrant arts and culture scene in Los Angeles! Art, music, food, mixology and fun await you as you step into a wonderland that will excite all of your senses. Curated by Shana Nys Dambrot, this event is sure to inspire.
"My vision for ARTOPIA this year continues and expands on the theme of interactivity, immersion, and experience that animated the 2014 edition — but this year, with a little more peace and love in the mix. Along with the return of favorites like Bohemian Society's edgy live body-painting textiles performance, and Debi Cable's Instagram-breaking 3D Art Gallery, ARTOPIA invites a cast of engaging, beauty-obsessed installation and performance artists and progressive video programmers to celebrate the release of the Weekly's People Issue by genuinely showing our love for the people. Setting the audio atmosphere for a night of hosted bars, botanical stimulation, appreciation of the human body, and the magic of art being made before your eyes will be the one and only Jeremy Sole — friend of all things beautiful, and so much more than just your favorite DJ." — Shana Nys Dambrot
Artopia also celebrates the LA Weekly People Issue, on stands the same day! In our second largest issue of the year, the award winning LA Weekly editorial staff profiles the 60 most intriguing people in the city. This event serves as a launch party for the issue and the place to see the who's who of Los Angeles!
