August 6 is our innagural Society of Interested Persons Salon

As a new programming feature here at the museum we are going to host a bi-monthly salon which will begin August 6 at 8:00. Each salon will feature 4 presenters: a visual artist, a musician/band, a literary reader curated by the awesome Nikki Darling, and a lecturer. Each presenter will be given 15 minutes to present and answer any questions the audeince might have. This is a great opportunity to be exposed to art, literature, music, and other disciplines or information that you were not exposed to before. It is free.

Our presenters this month will be:

Los Angeles abstract painter/sculptor Andy Kolar (http://www.carlberggallery/ for more images).
