Sunday, July 28 | 4-6pm
Tavern on Brand
208 N. Brand, Glendale


ForYourArt invited independent booksellers from three of our favorite bookstores for art books to pick sleeper hits from Brand Bookshop. We’re giving them away foryourart to the first 99 people who join us for beers at Tavern on Brand.

Dagny Corcoran has run Art Catalogues since 1977, specializing in publications on contemporary art, photography and architecture. Her in-depth knowledge of the cultural and social histories of the 20th century onward is clear in the remarkable selection of books and artist editions enjoyed by art lovers of all kinds.

Lee Kaplan founded Arcana: Books on the Arts in 1984, and has since with his wife Whitney built a vast selection of out-of-print and significant volumes on modern and contemporary art, photography, design, cinema, music and fashion. Their carefully designed store is considered a go-to for specialists from the city’s many creative communities.

Wendy Yao is the creator and shopkeeper of Ooga Booga, a store in Chinatown that since 2004 has offered a distinctive array of art books, objects, clothing and music by an international community of artists and designers. She opened a second location this year inside 356 Mission, a Boyle Heights arts space started by Laura Owens and Gavin Brown.
