ShoeboxLA Presents
Karen Frimkess Wolff: Dancing on Eggshells

Saturday, June 16, 2012 from 4-7pm

Little Tokyo Galleria – Second Floor
333 S. Alameda St (at 3rd), Los Angeles, CA 90013

ShoeboxLA concludes its inaugural season with Los Angeles artist Karen Frimkess Wolff.  Wolff’s presentation, Dancing on Eggshells, traverses gracefully and joyfully through precarious times and fragile circumstances, stepping triumphantly onto beds of roses and ultimately into safety.  Wolff, a Los Angeles native, has been exhibiting her sculpture, drawings and installations for over 40 years.  She received her BA in Painting and Drawing from UCLA and her MA in Art History from Cal State Northridge. 

ShoeboxLA is pleased to be returning to the Little Tokyo Galleria, the location for our first show in September of 2011.

(Little Tokyo Galleria is easily accessible via the Metro Gold and Red lines, with plenty of street and one hour free, on-site parking.)

Monumental Thanks!

Great turnout for Joshua Levine's Monumental at the Studio for Southern California History.  We can't thank Sharon Sekhon and her crew enough for having us back a second time.  Please check out their website and attend one of their talks, events or walking tours.  Sharon knows a lot of stuff about our beloved city and her energy is simply lovely.  Thank you to everyone who came out.  We love seeing you.

Josh's work is available for purchase. $200.00 will get you one extremely limited edition sculpture, made expressly for ShoeboxLA.  Email us to reserve one today or to request photos of work.

LA Pinball and the Studio for Southern California History

L.A. Pinball, a pinball machine designed after downtown Los Angeles with history and geography built into its layout, is from a refurbished "Flash Gordon" vintage pinball machine. It was re-designed by the Studio in 2006 and it is FREE to play. 

L.A. Pinball will be on-view during ShoeboxLA's exhibit of new work by Joshua Levine on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 4-7pm.

"The Studio for Southern California History seeks to critically chronicle Southern California history from a social and cultural perspective. By examining history "from the bottom up" the Studio hopes to recover overlooked histories of community and strife in the larger Los Angeles area and to foster a sense of place and political entitlement among Southern Californians."

Support the Studio today:

Studio Founder and Director Sharon Sekhon will be with us to enlighten and answer all your L.A. history questions.  Take the train to Chinatown and see your city.  We can't wait to see you!

Joshua Levine: Monumental

We can't wait to see you on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 4-7pm for Josh's show.

The Studio for Southern California History – Chinatown 
818 N. Hill Street (at the Best Western Plaza), Los Angeles, CA 90012

J. Levine, detail
For this exhibition Levine creates a series of 12 sculptures that continue his investigation of genetic animal hybrids. These sculptures are presented on bases modeled after an iconic U.S. National Monument.  Monuments are typically used to mark or commemorate moments of historical importance or to celebrate cultural figures. Meant for public viewing, they are the truest form of “art for the masses”. Levine's trophies also magnify the exciting, dangerous and unknown path of cloning, genetics and synthetic biology and our continued quest for perfection, control and domination.

Keep in mind, the Studio is Metro accessible.  All train lines to Union Station, walk or simply take the Goldline one stop to Chinatown.  Walk two blocks west on College to Hill, make a left and go to the Best Western Plaza!

We will have buttons for sale and there will be FREE pinball courtesy of the Studio:
