Art collector Danny First has been making benches -- they're black and would be nondescript if not for the bold prayers written across their backs. "Oh, Lord Won't You Buy Me a Grotjahn?" says one in all-caps, red letters, referring to the Mark Grotjahn whose concentric, mildly mind-bending abstract paintings now command high prices. Other benches single out hard-to-come-by artists: "Oh, Lord, Won't You Buy Me a Basquiat?" or "Won't You Buy Me a Richter?" A suite of the benches currently sits in Maloney Fine Art's back courtyard. 2680 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through Aug. 17. (310) 570-6420, maloneyfineart.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 20. Continues through Aug. 17, 2013
