The LA Weekly presents ARTOPIA 2017
LA Art Tours is working with the LA Weekly, Dublab, and a bunch of great food, drink, and art sponsors to bring you Artopia 2017.
We have discounted regular admission and VIP tickets available (entitles you to an hour early admission, special access, and a gift basket full of great presents) right here on our website. We are also doing a special 1 hour Arts District Graffiti and Mural tour before Artopia, which includes a discounted admission.
This event is 21+ and is being held in the historic Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles.
LA Weekly’s fifth annual art party, Artopia, is a celebration of the vibrant arts and culture scene in Los Angeles. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, August 26, 2017, in DTLA at Union Station, a Historic-Cultural monument and “the last of the great train stations.”
For the second year in a row, we have enlisted the help of internet radio network and DJ collective dublab to curate the sights and sounds. From performance artists to DJs to filmmakers and dance troupes, an impressive lineup of artists will fill your senses.
Attendees will have the opportunity to sample cocktails and local cuisine, peruse the work of visual artists, watch performances, and dance the night away. They can also shop in our vendor village, which will feature handmade goods from local artisans and craftspeople.
Tickets for the event include beer, wine and cocktail samples, food samples, and access to all of the art and entertainment programmed for the evening. VIP tickets include the added benefits of an hour early entry into the event and an exclusive gift bag.
LA ART TOURS has tours for regular and VIP ticket holders. The VIP tour starts promptly at 5:30 PM and the regular admission tour starts promptly at 6:30 PM at 599 Traction Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (across from Angel City Brewery, next to the Metro Bike racks) Your artist/guides will be waiting for you there, ready to give a history of the Arts District, graffiti art, and the amazing artists that create the urban art in your city. After the one hour tour your guides will walk the 10 minute walk with you to Union Station (and continue to point out urban art along the way) or you can opt to take Lyft/Uber or drive yourself.
The Artopia bash runs from 8:00pm to 11:00pm with VIP entry starting at 7:00pm. Union Station is located at 800 North Alameda Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
Artopia benefits dublab, a non-profit, online radio station dedicated to the growth of music, arts and culture.
