SUPPORT: Public Art Party

ForYourArt’s Public Art Party: Beverly Hills

In 2009, ForYourArt threw Public Art Party: Beverly Hills, Saturday July 11 from noon to 6:00pm. We celebrated Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s brightly colored, polka-dotted Hymn of Life: Tulips at the junction of Santa Monica Boulevard and Rodeo Drive.

We offered a downloadable map for taking a self-guided cultural experience of the city with stops at The Paley Center for Media to view three of Kusama’s short films and Gagosian Gallery to see Flowers That Bloom at Midnight, the artist’s first solo show in L.A. since 1998. Then at Porta Via there was a special box lunch available and Sprinkles created special Kusama-inspired cupcake while participants enjoyed the rooftop garden at The Paley Center or by the public sculpture. Around the sculpture was face-painting and digital portraits taken.

Here’s the invite:
