On the heels of a sold out April Fool’s Day kickoff, Barnsdall Art Park continues its literary arts fundraising series with its latest installment, Summer Reading.
On June 25th from 7:30-10 p.m., the Park’s iconic Gallery Theatre invites guests to participate in its second BAMBOOZLED: Fact. Fiction. Art? event, with an all new lineup for an engaging, interactive evening, exploring the art of deception.
Hosted by radio reporter Rico Gagliano and curated by writer Diana Wagman, BAMBOOZLED promises a night to remember with live readings by four notable LA-based authors, J. Ryan Stradal, Jillian Lauren, Gary Phillips and Naomi Hirahara.
The audience then gets to decide whether or not each writer’s intricate stories are, in fact, Fact or Fiction? Prizes will be awarded to the winners. During the performance, talented, multi-media artist Aaron Axelrod will be creating a live painting inspired by the stories told, which will be gifted at the end of the night in a grand prize drawing.
The event has been brought to the Park by the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation and made possible by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
Admission is $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
