Congrats to Shepard and Amanda on being one of the 30 free things to do while being in LA. It is so important to support all types of arts as art provides for better culture, education, creativity and positive discussion and communication. Shepard is probably the most influential artist of the late 20th and early 21st century. Behind every great man their is a woman - Amanda. www.maxformal.com since 1953. Be nice to an artist today!
Best Hole-in-the-Wall Art Gallery for Celeb Spotting - 2013
Dodger Stadium isn't the only Elysian Park Avenue attraction that draws a massive, star-studded crowd. Subliminal Projects, housed in Shepard Fairey's unassuming Studio Number One creative firm at the corner of Sunset Boulevard, is a contemporary exhibition space Fairey opened in 2003 with his wife, Amanda. A decade later, Subliminal Projects remains relevant, with recent group and solo exhibitions that have reimagined Boy Scouts, riffed on ecstasy, captured the gaudy culture of nail art and represented Los Angeles in black-and-white woodcut illustrations. With valet service, a DJ and extraordinarily long lines for free booze, exhibition openings at Subliminal feel like exclusive house parties attended by celebrity art collectors, including Moby, Billy Idol, Rose McGowan and, of course, Fairey himself. 1331 W. Sunset Blvd., Echo Park, 90026. (213) 213-0078, subliminalprojects.com. —Jennifer Swann
