Artists in Storefronts 3
Joan Vorderbruggen has been busy bringing her projects to life, animating vacant spaces in the Whittier neighborhood with engaging art installations. The success of her first two ventures has led to a third, which will include 32 artists, 20 storefront exhibits, and pop-up performance art along Eat Street. The $10 kick-off party from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 5, features a runway presentation at Icehouse of wearable art crafted by local designers (including Project Runway alum Christopher Straub) based on the sketches of five-year-old artist Louis Bustos. DJ Venus DeMars and video projectionist Mach Fox will also be on hand. In coming months, performances by Jaime Carrera, installations by Mary Jane Mansfield, and graffiti art by CAW*ES and Wundr will enliven the avenues, as will the Luminaria walking tour.
