Experience NoHo Arts Festival – Art

Experience ART in NoHo!

During the Experience NoHo Festival, visual art will be everywhere throughout NoHo, with public art stations hosted by ArtStorm, as well as live mural painting and gallery installations and exhibits in all of the NoHo galleries.

The fun and festivities are happening November 12, 2011 from 12pm – 8pm in the NoHo Arts District.

Experience NoHo is part arts-walk and part festival. A large main stage area for music will be located at the north end of the festival, while a dance stage will anchor the festival on Lankershim Blvd. at the south end. Art will be everywhere – from public art stations inviting patrons to create their own art, to gallery installations. There will be incredible discounts and offerings from local restaurants and retailers. To top it off, 15 of NoHoʼs live theatres will offer performances, classes and demonstrations for FREE during festival hours.

So come SEE, HEAR, TASTE… Experience NoHo!

The Brothers Grimm’s collection of dark folk tales serves as inspiration for this unique group exhibition. Without sparing viewers from the dark originations of the tales, artists Cory Benhatzel and Steven Daily deftly interpret many of our most cherished stories from childhood. Each artist, in their own distinct style, have created hauntingly beautiful paintings that without words, communicate clearly the frightening consequences of disobeying your Stepmother, laying a cruel hand on a helpless creature, or simply walking off the dark forest path.

The exhibition also features a unique group show of work applied directly to the outside covers and bindings of Grimm’s Fairy Tale books. Artists include Marisa Cody, Wendy Crabb, Paul D’Elia, WB Fontenot, Ashley Fontenot, Amber Johnson, Kim Kimbro, Thea Saks, Wiley Wallace and more.
