Only LA’s one-of-a-kind art showcase and charity auction, EAT YOUR ART OUT V, could turn art into a tent-pole event. This year’s theme will transport patrons to a 1920’s travelling carnival and art gallery inside of Titmouse Inc. animation studios on February 25th, 2012, starting at 7pm.
Among food-trucks, free beer, carnival games, live DJ sets by DJ Day, DJ Mahf (and more), and all the curios and wonders one would expect from a carnival, the work of over 60 A-List artists will be on display for all to see and bid on in a silent auction. All pieces have a minimum bid price, but are priced to sell this one night at much less than standard gallery prices.
Already renown in LA’s subversive art world, in 2011, curator Jane Dope found herself having to turn away donations from artists due to the limited space in last year’s venue at Meltdown Comics. This year, the event has blossomed into a vast spectacle that will adorn Titmouse Studios with work from artists such as Andy Howell, Angry Woebots, Dave Crosland aka King Gum, Dave MacDowell, Jason Goad, Jim Mahfood aka Food One, Joe (Chogrin) Game, Johnny VamPotna, Josh Taylor, Kevin Knight, Lou Pimentel and more on its roster, with many more joining this month.
EAT YOUR ART OUT was started five years ago by a skater for the Angel City Derby Girls, Jane Dope, to raise funds for her struggling women’s Flat Track Roller Derby League. “Our survival is largely dependent upon sponsorships, donations and fundraising events,” Jane explains. “Eat Your Art Out is by far our most successful fundraising event, beyond my wildest dreams!”
EAT YOUR ART OUT V’s goal is to raise enough money for Angel City Derby Girls to have a permanent home to hold roller derby bouts and events for the community. All proceeds go to support the league, which is independently run by the skaters for the skaters.
When: February 25, 2012 from 7-11 pmWhere: Titmouse Inc. – 1121 Seward Street, Hollywood, CA 90038
