Bagavagabonds

Enjoy artful Dreams and a fun evening out on August 21, 2010
The Bagavagabonds “Dream†Art Explosion is the fourth installment in an original conception that derives from the idea that art doesn’t always have to be judged with a critical eye or available to only a select audience…sometimes art’s purpose can be simply to inspire a feeling of creative expression, an idea that should be accessible to anyone who might take part.

The Bagavagabonds have commissioned artists from all over the world to create works based on the theme of “DREAM†and are producing an interactive, awe-inspiring gallery to share these talents with the community. The pieces will be sold via silent auction, and in the spirit of complete accessibility, no piece will be sold for more than 50 bucks.

All art sale proceeds will benefit the inspirational Los Angeles-based charity Make Something!!

The Art Explosion movement began in 2007 with the “Animal†Art Explosion; “The Beatles†and “POP†Art Explosions followed the next year. With help from a variety of like-minded sponsors and countless generous and talented contributors, the Bagavagabonds have welcomed over 2,500 people to the Art Explosions and sold over 500 pieces of original art off the walls. Complete with original short films, incredible skits and dance, and countless musical collaborations, these events have proven to be fun, inspiring and constructive for the art communities of Los Angeles and the world!

Accompanying the visual art will be an assortment of interactive activities for patrons

5 for 50†Film Festival — Watch original short films by some of L.A.’s best underground filmmakers. Video artists are challenged to create a “DREAM†-themed 5-minute short film for under $50.
