East Hollywood ArtCycle event this Saturday + live painting at Thinkspace…

The East Hollywood Neighborhood Council and East Hollywood Arts and Culture Committee announce the first-ever ArtCycle, an event designed to showcase the emerging art and bicycling cultures in East Hollywood. From 2-10 p.m., artists will take over the street at Heliotrope and Melrose, the hip hub of the East Hollywood art and bicycle scene. More than a dozen galleries, theatres, creative venues and artist live/work spaces will open themselves up to the neighborhood for a celebration of everything East Hollywood. Hop on a bike to take a tour of some of East Hollywood’s finest galleries, like Synchronicity, Thinkspace and Junc. See a show at Sacred Fools or the Fake Gallery, or just browse among the dozens of artists and performers displaying their creations at the street fair at Heliotrope and Melrose. There’ll be plenty of food and live entertainment, including the exotic salsa dancers of Salsarologo, the hypnotic sounds of Telematique, and the gypsy jazz phenomenon of KillSonic. Be sure to bring and old t-shirt for a BYO silk screen and don’t forget the kids as there will be face painting and much more for the whole family to enjoy and take part in.
Artist Michael Pukac (above) will be on hand at Thinkspace painting live out front the gallery from roughly 2-6PM, so be sure to ride on by and check that out… he’s amazing to watch and he really has a nice flair for painting live.
On view @ thinkspace during the ‘ArtCycle’ event:
Amy Crehore‘s Dreamgirls & Ukes
+ Anthony Clarkson‘s The Silent Treatment
