On Saturday, August 26th from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., DUBLAB and L.A. Weekly Managing Editor Drew Tewksbury curate yet another tantalizing celebration of the vibrant arts and culture scene of Los Angeles.
“Los Angeles is the creative capital of the world. No other city cultivates creativity like L.A., where art, music, film and fashion are an ever-present part of our cultural landscape. We are a city of dreamers and doers driven by imagination and the wherewithal to get shit done. For this year’s Artopia, L.A. Weekly’s annual festival celebrating the creative spirit, we’re throwing a bash in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, at the historic Union Station. We again teamed up with Dub lab, the culture curators and radio station who helped make last year’s Artopia a sensation atop a skyscraper, to showcase a standout selection of L.A.’s most visionary artists, musicians and performers. In Los Angeles, creativity is everywhere; Artopia is your entry point to the best our city has to offer.” – Drew Tewksbury, Managing Editor, L.A. Weekly.
“DUBLAB is partnering up with L.A. Weekly to curate yet another Artopia (2017). The LA based non-profit radio station is returning with its unique vision and approach in presenting a wide-ranging community of artists across disciplines and styles. DUBLAB DJs, video art, installations, live dance and music performances, sculptures, interactive/participatory projects; all amongst the historically gorgeous architecture of Union Station will be what makes this Artopia unique.” – Ale Cohen, Executive Director, DUBLAB
