Los Angeles Printer's Fair

The 2015 Los Angeles Printer's Fair is this upcoming weekend. I won't be able to go (I'm back in Boston!), but I remember talking about it at a previous meet-up and some people being interested. I thought this would be a good way to let people know that it's happening. [more inside]

Field trip: the Museum of Jurassic Technology TAKE TWO

Reposting from previous event! Chicainthecity most courteously reminded me that the event needed updating, and we discussed NOVEMBER 8th as the most likely afternoon. The consensus is now November 22nd: let us know in the thread! The Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City is a place that engenders love and and serious confusion, perhaps in equal measures. It is a palace of many mythical wonders and it was proposed as one of the next meetup locations. It's open until 6:00 PM on Saturdays; the cafe offers complimentary tea and cookies until 5:00. (It is also close to the Center for Land Use Interpretation, which is equally a palace of wonders if you like scholastic text and resource allocation. They also have quite a cool map of points of interest in the area around their Culver City branch.) [more inside]

Let's go to Watts Towers! The Watts Towers structure consists of seventeen major sculptures of steel, covered with mortar and embellished by decorative finishings of mosaic tiles, glass, clay, shells, and rock. This folk art employs assemblage construction. There are three tall spires, several small towers, two walls, gazebo, patio, ship, and other structures.

Slow Art Day in Salem, MA

International Slow Art Day is coming up on April 27th. It's a worldwide effort to have a different kind of art experience. The idea is to spend a couple of hours immersing yourself in just 5-10 works of art, and then meet up with individuals who have just done the same to talk about the experience. We're hosting Slow Art Day where I work, and Metafilter's own Lipstick Thespian is host. We thought it would be fun to invite MeFites to take part, and when it's all over, we can go out for a just-MeFite gathering over pints or such. [more inside]

Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA

Anyone interested in seeing the Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA? After some discussion, I figured Saturday, April 16 might be an auspicious date. I've been to the space before, and though the place isn't huge, this one looks fun. It's $5. Could do lunch before in Chinatown/SoHo also or just meet up at museum at 2:30.
