Roofless at DinOso, SUN September 16, 10am-1pm, Hollywood
Throughout modern art history, plaster cast collections have gone from being educational tools to collectible souvenirs. At one point in history (the 60s to 80s) they ended becoming art targets for being seen as symbols of white heritage. They were violently defaced, tagged on, and destroyed in art schools around the world.
Dino owns one of the last surviving kiosks in LA selling plaster casts. He's been in this location for 20 years and has seen the indiscriminate urban development on Santa Monica Blvd erase the landscape, and it's inhabitants, a few times over.
Dino started his plaster cast collection on the heyday of similar pop-up kiosks in the city during the nineties. It's one of the last ones now.
Join us for a day of outdoor painting at this unique location, painting Dino's plaster cast collection from life in this quintessential Hollywood strip mall. We'll set up our easels in a reserved area of the strip mall parking section, facing the display of Dino's plaster cast collection.
DinOso (pronounced dinosaur) is at 6705 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood, LA.
