1) If you haven't already checked out the L.A. Conservancy Tours, check one out today. Any Saturday, you can go on a tour of Broadway's Historic Theatre District, the Downtown Historic Core. Other tours are on certain Saturdays of each month. So check it out. Our three monkeys photo today? Well, if you take the Historic Theatre District tour, you might just see where this came from.
2) Saturday, September 13 marks the opening Gala of the Los Angeles World Festival of Sacred Music. This festival, which began in 1999 and continues in 2008, runs through September 28 in multiple venues around Los Angeles. It is founded on the belief that sacred music has the ability to bring forth our shared human values of peace, understanding, and respect for all living things. Go the website, check out the many events all over our community, and enjoy then with people you love.
3) In addition to LACMA, the La Brea Tar Pits, the Geroge C. Page Museum and the Peterson Automotive Museum, L.A.'s Museum Row is the home of the Craft and Folk Art Museum. This little museum evolved from a small craft shop, as one woman's celebration of indigenous art, international crafts, and art made by everyday people. An exhibit on printmaking, titled "Identity: Unlimited Editions" opens this weekend - attend the opening reception on Saturday night, or the public opening Sunday.
