Get ready for Dysonna City Art Gallery's 2nd annual art walk! This year we are changing things up a bit, by holding our event at the Exposition Park Rose Gardens, near USC!

We will feature an array of artists all over the gardens, as well as live music, poetry reading, story telling, live music, and more!

Ladies, it will be hot, so come out in your best derby hats! Wear them big, wear them proud, and wear them boldly, we want you to come out in your best hats!!! If you do not have one, we will have a supplier selling hats during the event.

We will also be hosting our next art competition with the theme of Summer Roses! Create a piece that involves the rose in any way you want, and make it as creative as you can! Top 3 will win great cash prizes, and we will also have a viewer's choice award as well.

If you are an artist that would be interested in showing your work, please go to www.artintheartgarden.com for forms and rules.

Monday Night Residency with Corners

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

From Confucius to the Constitution, Liu discusses his new collection of personal essays that provide insight into the evolving Chinese American dream.
