The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery will hold their annual benefit and silent auction this Saturday at the Barnsdall Art Park. Even if you're not planning on buying any art at the auction, you can go for the drink tasting which includes selections from Silver Lake Wine and Eagle Rock Brewery. The Heirloom LA, Border Grill, Coolhaus, Flat Iron and Mandolin Grill food trucks will be there for when you get hungry too.
Silent auction artists include Kim Abeles, whose 48 foot "Paper Person" can be seen at the California Science Center; and John Frame, whose ongoing project The Tale of the Crippled Boy includes films he makes with handcrafted characters.
General Admission doors are open from 8 pm - Midnight. Tickets are $25 in advance; $30 at door (includes three drink tastings). Saturday, May 4 at the Barnsdall Art Park. More info here.
