An inclusive, decentralized arts festival happening at locations across Los Angeles County, the 2020 edition of Maiden L.A. hosts some 75 projects, about half in-person and the rest online, with some hybrids. Highlights include a scavenger hunt crossword puzzle that takes you around the city for clues, a handwashing memorial to essential workers, a film screening that layers 32 kaiju films simultaneously, a range of open artist studio presentations and performances, an exhibition installed on the Brewery Arts Colony fencing, a positive affirmation selfie station, a web-based video-based storytelling project, an exterior in-situ photo-bombing of a local museum, a two-day boat and bridge happening in the wetlands, a combination VR/IRL project about the psyche emerging into the world, an indie gallery in a driveway, and an exhibition and events series on the poignant, evolving, and always urgent idea of “home.” September 1 – 20; various times; various locations;
