Announcing Around the Clock: 24 Hour Donut City II, LACMA’s Choice at ForYourArt at 6020 Wilshire Blvd.

ForYourArt at 6020 Wilshire Blvd
From 12pm Saturday, September 22 to 12pm Sunday, September 23

We are pleased to announce the second iteration of Around the Clock: 24 Hour Donut City, in celebration of the 24-hour screening of artist Christian Marclay’s The Clock, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

During the screening, ForYourArt will host a simultaneous free 24-hour reception at their 6020 Wilshire Blvd. activity space, offering an edible exhibition of L.A.’s signature donuts. Embracing the concept of both Marclay’s award-winning work and Los Angeles’s famous donut shops, ForYourArt will offer a selection of some of LACMA’s favorite treats, presenting a new type of donut every two hours. Just as many of L.A.’s donut shops serve their light and sweet snacks “around the clock,” ForYourArt at 6020 Wilshire Blvd. celebrates Marclay’s “around the clock” screening at LACMA.
