This afternoon outing will take place in the dense urban jungles of Westwood, CA. Mike Metzger will lead up to 15 participants through sidewalks, alleys, public land and everywhere else in between to forage for edible plants. The group will then gather and make a large wild salad and then make a dressing from only fruits that they have gathered on their hunt. The group will meet in the lobby at 12pm and then reconvene in the courtyard to make the salad at 3pm.

Live Personal Soundtrack

Saturday, February 6, 2010

Visitors to the exhibition The Bible Illuminated: R. Crumb’s Book of Genesis will be presented with the option to “check out” a musician to walk with them through the exhibition. The musician will follow the visitor around, playing live music into headphones through which only that visitor can hear. Conceived by Chris Kallmyer. This event will happen intermittently on Saturdays throughout the year, in various galleries and exhibitions.
