Pop-up Mag

If you haven't experienced the acclaimed live event, Pop-Up Magazine, by California Sunday Magazine, this Saturday is a must. Journalists, Oscar-winners and best-selling authors from all over get together at the Ace Hotel in DTLA to tell never before told, multi-media stories. This issue, Gustavo Arellano, actor Joy Bryant and Jimmy Kimmel's Bess Kalb join the line-up. You can't miss this one if you're a literary lover. More info here.

Camille Rose Garcia

Stop by the Corey Helford Gallery in Boyle Heights  to see Camille Rose Garcia's new multi-media solo show called "The Wonderful World of Dr. Deekay." Garcia's art is paving the way for female artists in the male-dominated genre of pop-surrealism. Her out-of-this world, colorful artwork has been featured in Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, Flaunt, and Paper. Her latest exhibition revisits a series of nightmare dental procedures that she experienced years ago.
