Are you an artist? Do you enjoy the arts? Do you support the arts? If so, that’s great, because we do, too!

For years, Big Sunday volunteers have supported the arts in all kinds of ways. Now, with the art list, artists and arts organizations can post and announce their events – concerts, exhibits, screenings, readings, performances – to everyone in the Big Sunday community. The only requirement is that somehow, some way, at some time, you’ve helped somebody else through a Big Sunday project.

If you have something you’d like to post, submit it HERE.

Interested in supporting theARTlist? Great! Contact adam@bigsunday.org.

Mother earth is a quintessential notion of motherhood, a sacred living entity we are ceremoniously tied to.

How do you personally experience motherhood and/or connect to mother earth?

How do we survive mother earth’s healing process? Or our own healing processes?

How do you nurture your relationship with mother earth?  With your body?  With your mother?  With women mothering around the world?

Self-Help Graphics was a great part of Big Sunday’s art/craft II and art/craft III.

Changing Values, Changing Times Dan McCleary: Every Day Sacred, Paintings 1993-2013

January 14 - March 7, 2015   ONGOING EVENT

USC Fisher Museum of Art, 823 Exposition Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | (213) 740-4561

USC Fisher Museum of Art is proud to present “Dan McCleary: Every Day Sacred. Paintings, 1993-2013″, a solo exhibition of Los Angeles artist Dan McCleary, showcasing sixteen paintings created during the last 20 years.

 

“Every Day Sacred” communicates the underlying spirituality of ordinary moments in carefully constructed minimalistic compositions. Dan McCleary specializes in interior scenes featuring one or very few subjects seemingly engaged in a state of contemplative introspection. In a style based on Renaissance and other renowned paintings by artists such as Piero della Francesca, Paolo Veronese, Johannes Vermeer, and Edouard Manet, “Every Day Sacred” is able to highlight the easily missed details of routine moments.

 

McCleary depicts his subjects absorbed in the mundane experience of life-ordinary and daily activities (at a coffee shop, at the hair salon, at the office, etc.) and renders an intimate and psychologically charged portrait of the human condition−a picture of solitary icons populating secular interiors.

 

A veteran of the Los Angeles art scene, Dan McCleary also founded Art Division in 2010, a non-profit organization, which teaches art to underserved young adults in the Rampart District of Los Angeles.

Dan McCleary founded and runs Art Division, which has participated in numerous Big Sunday events, including Books ‘n Brunch last fall.

LACMA, Bing Theater, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director Michael Govan is in conversation with artist Thomas Demand about his film installation, Pacific Sun, a joint acquisition by LACMA and the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, on view at the museum through April 12, 2015. Consisting of 2,400 frames that capture the artist’s meticulous recreation of YouTube footage of a cruise ship struggling in the midst of a violent storm, the work reveals Demand’s interest in opposing reality with the artificial. Demand’s earlier works dating from the early 1990s will also be discussed, illuminating his cross-disciplinary practice spanning sculpture, architecture, photography, and film.

SISTERS OF SOJOURN GALA

May 16, 2015  

, , Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | (310) 264-6646 x331

The Sisters of Sojourn (SOS) is a volunteer group formed more than a decade ago to support the operations of Sojourn’s Adams House. Each spring, SOS hosts a beautiful gala to raise funds and awareness for Adams House. The evening includes dinner, drinks, dancing and plenty of auction items and is a great way to kick-off the summer!

Sojourn’s Adams House is the only second stage facility in the region, and is for women and their children whose trauma experience is too great to move directly from a crisis shelter to independent living. Sojourn’s Adams House provides up to six months of safe housing, legal advocacy, education, and service-enriched programs, enabling them to regroup, rebuild, and reestablish their self-esteem and their lives. Please join us for the next SOS Gala, scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2015,  to support this important work.

For more information about the next Sisters of Sojourn gala, contact Aileen Martinez at (310) 264-6646 x331 or amartinez@opcc.net.

Big Sunday volunteers have  worked with OPCC for years – serving breakfast at Daybreak, brunch at Turning Point, dinner at Samoshel, as well as pain ting, gardening and cleaning!

The Power of Duff

April 7 - May 17, 2015  

Geffen Playhouse, 10886 Le Conte Avenue, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 310) 208-5454

Charlie Duff’s nightly newscast makes him a voice to be heard, so why isn’t his teenage son listening? When an on-air prayer for his father goes viral, Duff finds himself at the center of a firestorm over God’s place in the newsroom. When his prayers turn prophetic, Duff suddenly has the power to reach everyone — except his own son. Stephen Belber’s sharp new play asks if there is anything more vital than the faith we have in one another.

The Geffen Theatre has generously provided free tickets for various Big Sunday events. Most recently, Big Sunday volunteers took a group of vets to the see a play there.
