As Angelenos gave themselves whiplash in their attempts not to miss any Oscar-week star sightings, the art world played a supporting role to Hollywood’s leading-lady position. Nevertheless, contemporary art made its presence known in the lead-up to Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, notably with openings at Gagosian and Prism galleries.
From February 6 to February 11, a select group of young art students across Los Angeles received a crash course in their craft through intense master classes and workshops with internationally renowned artists and art world professionals. All this through the National YoungArts Foundation, which just inaugurated YoungArts Los Angeles, a new program modeled after their signature annual program — YoungArts Week.
