TKU: Lydiaemily, Andy Moses, Kazuki Takamatsu, Sage Vaughn, Zero + Publishing

We’re excited to be seeing even more art arriving for The Karma Underground’s “Oh Brother Where Art Thou” benefit this Thursday at Angel City Brewery. And we’re eager to be surprised that night by works from artists we’ve covered like Gary Baseman, Bill Barminski, Mear One  and Allison Torneros, and to see what David LaChappelle and Aaron Smith have in store for us. Plus works from Jason Shawn Alexander, Malleus,  Meggs,  Shauna Peterson, and over two dozen other artists. Art lovers who love books will be thrilled to know both Zero + Publishing and William Dailey Rare Books will be there.

Proceeds from the art auction and the $10 suggested donation (plus $1 from the sale of each beer!) will benefit Tibet House U.S., dedicated to preserving Tibet’s unique culture. By presenting Tibetan civilization and its profound wisdom, beauty, and special art of freedom to the people of the world, Tibet House U.S. hope to inspire others to join the effort to protect and save it.

Along with art, there’s live music from Alfred Hawkins and Coleman and live screen printing from Hit+Run.
