Five Artsy Things To Do This Weekend, Including Pop Sequentialism, Facebook-Inspired Art and First Fridays at NHM
"For the Birds" at Audubon Center at Debs Park
Five picks for arts events and exhibits opening this weekend, from LA Weekly's Calendar section:
1. "Peter Shire: Hokkaido Story Revisited: Late Spring" and "POP-SEQUENTIALISM: Great Comic Book Art of the Modern Age" at La Luz de Jesus
"At the definitive emporium of all things lowbrow, pop surrealist and wacko," Shana Nys Dambrot writes, Shire's "quirky, high-energy work is known for its hyperstylized forms and bold colors and patterns -- making it the ideal counterpart to the concurrent exhibition of iconic superhero-based comic art."

2. "Max Maslansky: Behind the Internet" at Emma Gray HQ
Maslansky's exhibit, writes Dambrot, "features paintings and related materials from his ongoing project of scouring social media, specifically Facebook, for images that resonate with his eccentric obsession." More info...
3. "For the Birds" at Audubon Center at Debs Park
