I still haven’t made it over to the LALA Gallery space yet, and they’re already about to unveil their second exhibit. PUBLIC WORKS opens tomorrow evening, and features contributions from the likes of How & Nosm, Insa, Revok, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Trustocorp, and many more. Initially, the murals will be on view at the gallery space, (Aug 3 – Aug 17) and after that they’ll go up on billboards around the city.
Speaking of talented people doing big things, SF-based artist Hannah Stouffer (interviewed) is opening a new installation at Kinfolk Studios in NYC tomorrow evening. It’s by the same folk who do Kinfolk Bicycles, and it’s a gallery space located in Brooklyn; 90 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211. 7pm-12pm. Her recent work looks absolutely stunning.
Very appropriately timed for today’s date, New Image Art gallery in West Hollywood unveil new work from secretive artist NECK FACE tonight. The event also includes new prints, free drinks, costumes (optional), and probably lots more blood splatters. The event only runs for about a week, so don’t dillydally if you’re a NECK FACE fan.

Looks like the Aaron Rose Fire Sale at LA’s own Known Gallery last weekend was absolutely epic. Line around the block status. I couldn’t make it unfortunately. If you want to see some of the artistic goodies you missed out on acquiring for a good cause, Known have a really nice recap of the opening night. Juxtapoz has some coverage too. Looks like Tommy Guerrero was playing live music (as rumored). Via The Worlds Best Ever.
Globe-trotting street artist ABOVE (interviewed) just had an opening in Melbourne, Australia. By all reports, it was a huge success. He even had three lovely ladies dressed as air stewardesses, complete in ’50s Pan Am flight attire. They greeted the “passengers” and handed out Above airlines boarding passes. As if that wasn’t enough, a telephone booth was imported from London, and there were professional Argentinian dancers doing the tango too. The exhibit runs through July 14th. [Check out the photos]

The Fire Sale list includes Mike Mills, Ed Templeton, Sonic Youth, Mister Cartoon, Thomas Campbell, Tommy Guerrero (who, I heard, will be DJing on the night of), Terry Richardson, Tobin Yelland, and more.
