Like a State of the Union address on the art world's broadening cultural shift, Roberta Uno and Jose Antonio Vargas engage in discussion and Q&A on Arts and Culture in a Changing America tonight Wednesday 10/14 8:30pm at REDCAT.

Max Jansons produces painted works of pleasures, patterns, and portraits in Farm to Table, his solo show at Grice Bench in the Arts District, on display now and open Tuesday through Saturday 12-6pm.

Ordinary objects move as tapestries float and markers draw patterns as if by magic, though really just by ordinary ceiling fans, in Manuel Scano Larrazàbal's first US show Inexorable Acephalous Magnificence or How the Shit Hits the Fan at MaRS Gallery in The Flats (east of LA River), open Tuesday through Saturday 12-7pm.

Believe the hype for yourself as indie rock staple Deerhunter play two nights at The Regent this Friday 10/16 6:30pm and Saturday 10/17 8pm.
CicLAvia returns to its roots for its Downtown-centered Heart of LA route this Sunday 10/18 9am-4pm. Up at the Grand Park hub, take part in The Big Draw, an annual collaborative drawing festival.

Ride your bike, or walk or skate or paddle, along Spring St, 7th St, and
across the east side during CicLAvia on Sunday.
