ThinksSpace Gallery In Los Angeles Is doing a massive Surprise show on MAy 30th for the Culver City Artwalk! Andtrew Hozner writes:

"The Show features the best of our current inventory along with some new works from a select few who just happened to send us new works recently. This very special exhibit came together very last minute, and we’re excited to be taking part in the premiere art event in Los Angeles. More than 5,000 people are expected on Sat, May 30th in Culver City – and we’ll be on hand bringing a fresh new flavor to things with a live painting demonstration, live DJ action and a poetry slam in the middle of it all to mix things up a bit.

If you’re going to be in town that weekend, please do your best to roll through and say hi and check out the lil’ show we’ve put together. Very proud of how this came together given the last minute nature of locating a space, locking in all the details with the City and putting together a nice display of live painting… not to mention we are just a few doors west of Corey Helford and Cerasoli, so we’re right in the middle of the Art Walk."
