MOCA. I was en route to the preview of Art in the Streets, and clearly I had found it.
The invite came from Levi's, to check out their impressive new Film Workshop set up in conjunction with MOCA's vast exhibit comprehensively surveying graffiti and street art through the past several decades. Rather than exiting through the gift shop, museum-goers would exit through the workshop.
But what I am looking forward to most? Shockingly, the food segment coming up in July! Levi’s has only hinted at some of the programming (still in the works), but disclosed a project that will pair celebrated food trucks (Kogi BBQ confirmed among them) with respected filmmakers to create short films celebrating the food truck trade. Stay tuned, I will post the full food schedule once it's released.
In the meantime, who wants to get green screened into Babette's Feast?

And since I had a press pass in hand, I quickly toured the exhibit next door. Not to be missed!
