First Friday

Like a lot of big cities, ours has a great outdoor art event, the first Friday of every month, called First Friday. 
It is a great time for artists to showcase their creativity in many forms.  
My monkeys love the street performers, Dr. J loves the live music, I love the visual arts and we all love the culinary arts.
Because yesterday was the first Friday before Halloween, there was definitely a underlining theme in the way people dressed and the art on show.
Here are some of my favorite photos of the art work we saw.

Because it is a big event and takes place after dark I didn't focus on getting the names of all the artists or titles of their works down, as thoroughly as I would have liked to- 
Not losing my monkeys among zombies was a top priority for the night- so in that case it was a success.

Wow!! They portray a lot of violence. The girl with the demon coming out is heartbreaking.

Fabulous art! I especially love the Wolverine one :) I'd totally hang that in my living room (yes, because I'm a geek.)

We have First Fridays at the Getty and LACMA over here in LA, and I can never get over to them because of traffic but they always sound amazing.

Glad you enjoyed the art!
