Thank you to all that came out to make Beyond Eden such a huge success. We had well over 6,000 art lovers come through the halls of the LA Municipal Art Gallery, located in the middle of beautiful Barnsdall Park, during the weekend of October 9th. 14 of Los Angeles’ most talked about galleries came together to showcase the works of over 100 artists from the thriving new contemporary movement. In addition to the galleries displaying their works, Beyond Eden also featured the ‘Heroes & Villains’ photographic exhibit from Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho, the LA debut of  the film ‘Scribble.08’ on Sunday afternoon, as well as over 20 artists painting live during the Saturday evening festivities. The outside courtyard area was a buzz with activity throughout the gala reception on Sat evening.

All day long on Saturday the crowds kept coming...

It was truly one for the history books and we can’t wait to make next year even bigger and better. Plans are already in motion and after the success of this year’s fair, we know that next year the sky is the limit. So stoked to blow this up.

The crowd swelled well into the late evening...

  1. I went on Sunday and had a great time. I will come next year as well. Maybe more variety in galleries next year?
