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.

Larry Sultan: Here and Home

November 2020, 2014 - March 22, 2015   ONGOING EVENT

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

 

Larry Sultan: Here and Home is the first retrospective of California photographer Larry Sultan (1946–2009). The exhibition includes more than 200 photographs ranging from Sultan’s conceptual and collaborative works of the 1970s to his solo works in the decades following. Sultan never stopped challenging the conventions of photographic documentation, exploring themes of family, home, and façade throughout his career. Five major bodies of work are represented including: Evidence (1977), made collaboratively with Mike Mandel; Swimmers (1978–81); Pictures from Home (1982–92); The Valley (1998–2003); and Homeland (2006–2009). The show is augmented by a “study hall,” with documentation and ephemera providing a glimpse of Sultan’s modes of inquiry as an artist and a teacher.

Every year LACMA provides free admission (and a free bus!) to take many disadvantaged and grateful folks to Andell Family Sundays!

Big Quilts in Small Sizes: Children’s Historical Bedcovers

November 1919, 2014 - January 4, 2015   ONGOING EVENT

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Ten diminutive quilts chosen from the museum’s collection, all of them made for children, reflect the same meticulous stitching and geometric patterns that have been used to create full-size bedcovers in the United States for centuries. The traditional art of quilting perfectly marries functionality and aesthetics; quilts provide warmth and protection while presenting strikingly beautiful decorative designs.

 

Quilting is defined by the small, often decorative stitches joining three key elements: the quilt’s top, the backing, and the soft wool or cotton battling in between. Variations in the application and arrangement of blocks, sashes and other details create an extensive range in the design and appearance of the artworks.

 

Although fancier quilts were initially the purview of women of means, quilts made of recycled fabrics from clothing and scraps of household or commercial textiles were also produced for practical uses.  Technological advances in the 18th and 19th centuries dramatically expanded the textile industry and the availability of textiles to the average woman, transforming quilting from a useful endeavor to a popular aesthetic pursuit.

Delacroix’s Greece on the Ruins of Missolonghi

November 1919, 2014 - February 15, 2015   ONGOING EVENT

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Painted in 1826 by Eugène Delacroix, the leading French Romantic painter of the day, Greece on the ruins of Missolonghi is one of the most celebrated French paintings of the 19th century. It was executed shortly after the event it commemorates: In 1825, during the Greek war of independence from Ottoman occupation, Turkish troops besieged the city of Missolonghi. The Greek population, already decimated by famine and epidemics, attempted a heroic liberation that ended in tragedy when the Turks killed most of the population of the city. Delacroix, like many European artists and intellectuals, was a fervent supporter of the Greek cause. Most of the painting is dedicated to the figure of Greece herself, represented as a young woman wearing traditional costume. Her posture and expression recall traditional religious images of the Virgin weeping over the body of Christ. The image of suffering Greece succeeded in conveying the plight of the Greeks to the French public.

 

Now kept in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux, sister city to Los Angeles, this monumental painting has seldom traveled. The exhibition is a rare opportunity to see a masterpiece by one of the great French artists of the 19th century.

Young wife Melody has never been to a funeral — until her husband dies in a plane crash,” press notes state. “Expected to instantly assume proper widowhood, Melody is left to wonder, what’s the right way to grieve? Fortunately, her mother-in-law is a professional. Widow, that is. Under her guidance, Melody must try her best to be a good little widow.
