Jerri Allyn: Debating Through the Arts
The Metabolic Studio's Public Salons, which have happened every Friday since November 2006, are entering a new phase. The series will reopen at the Studio in a different form, in a remodeled space, in the Fall. In the meantime join us on The Twain, the Studio's new red trolley, for six Fridays of mobile conversation starting at noon on August 27th.
Coinciding with two works by Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio – Strawberry Flag and Building 209: Garden Folly – which are at either end of the route, the trolley and its special guest "conversationalists" will journey from the LA County Museum of Art to the VA campus in West LA and back again, narrating the route and exploring issues raised by the artworks.
