Art Crawl 9 Friday, September 15th, Saturday, September 16th & Sunday, September 17th

Sept. 15, 1963

The Art Crawl 9 through Silver Lake and Echo Park kicks off tonight at over 20 galleries, performance spaces, and just about any pole or wall in the neighborhood that some artist can stick some work on.

There was a great piece by Ann Herron on the
Silver Lake garden of Alberto Hernandez featured in the movie Quinceanera in the Home section of yesterday's LA Times. In the past, Albert has often opened up his garden --and front lawn, even-- for artists to use as exhibit space during local events. Alberto deservedly has a nice collection of those official proclamations from just about every level of government and has been featured on Huell Howser's California Gold, but I hope that it will be protected as cultural landmark. The folk art-filled garden, as Ann Herron noted, has often been compared to the Watts Towers.
