An Occupy L.A., Occupy Venice & FourStory Gallery: The Photos!
A recap of events and some highlights from the show!
by Tony Chavira
Last Saturday's gallery at Vortex came together beautifully, as Occupy L.A., Occupy Venice and FourStory were able to feature some amazingly talented artists and the occupations partially recreated the culture of their public space that was once on the lawn in front of Los Angeles city hall.
We'd love to publicly e-thank Occupy Los Angeles and Occupy Venice again for putting together such a great event! In the words of the Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein, “Art is a weapon for me, with which I can strike back.”
Below are images (for those who couldn't make it) taken by the talented photographer Rush Valera, Occupy L.A.'s Patrick Chavira, and myself for you to snoop through as you foraciously absorb your RDA of internet.
Feel free and click any of the pictures to reveal a larger version. Or view the slideshow.
