3. L.A. Art Show and Photo LA Join Forces in 2014 for Art Weekend LA in Downtown 

L.A. hosts a seemingly endless number of art and photo fairs each year. But this year the L.A. Art Show and Photo LA have chosen to open in the same week, and in the same place– downtown, drawing in other events that are all being marketed under the umbrella of  “art weekend LA.”  There will be a free shuttle service to transport guests between the L.A. Art Show, Photo LA, Jewelry and Antique Show and other art events over the weekend. The fairs will have a mix of vendors from L.A. and overseas, see full list here.

L.A. photographer Jay Mark Johnson, whose photo graces Photo LA’s flyer below will be among artists who are featured in both shows.
