LA Freewalls Inside Show Prep ~ LALA Gallery

Downtown's new LALA Gallery is in the midst of launching their opening show that promises to be one of the best of 2012. Yesterday photographer Erwin Recinos stopped in to check out the preparations...

LA Freewalls Inside is a group show featuring over 40 artists who have helped make Downtown Los Angeles one of the biggest and most recognizable public art spaces in the world, including Shepard Fairey, SWOON, HOW and NOSM. Keep a lookout as we unveil the final line-up over the next two weeks.

The opening of LALA Gallery is intended to serve as the locus of the Los Angeles street art movement. Owner Dan Lahoda has spearheaded the movement with his decisive voice over the past two and half years through the community-endorsed LA Freewalls Project, bringing incredible murals and art to the downtown Los Angeles environ, contributing viscerally to the perception of the community from down-and-out to up-and-coming.

LALA Gallery is a space where the artists integral to this pivotal project as well as other public art projects can exhibit their studio work and connect with admirers of the street murals. LALA is tucked into a spacious corner of an old meat packing facility built in 1949, kitty corner to downtown local hangout bar Villains, and boasts high ceilings and a raw space that is a natural fit for street artists to bring their work inside. The gallery is meant as a space not only to show work, but for artists to use as a creative laboratory in which to experiment and interact with the community. - LALAARTS.com
