The Brand Library, Glendale // January 21, 2023 – March 17, 2023

Always in pursuit of uniting and elevating the New Contemporary Art community, Thinkspace Projects teams up with Tlaloc Studios and the California Cowboys Collective to present RAIZ, an all day blowout event to mark the opening of the two month art show at the Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale, California.
With 60 artists in the group show alone, the extravaganza is sure to be diverse and varied, bringing universal appeal from so many incredible contributors. With a focus on local Los Angeles based artists, the lineup is as impressive as it is varied, including new work from many of the hottest names in the LA scene. Solo shows from Anthony Clarkson, Ken Flewellyn, Matthew Grabelsky, Anthony Hurd, and Cody Jimenez round out the gallery exhibits, filling the walls with innovative and genre-blending pieces across mediums.
It’s not just the walls inside the Art Center, but the walls inside the hallways of the Brand itself as well that are being transformed for this event, with site-specific murals from Brek, LoveYoDreams, and Mr. B Baby adorning the entry hallway area and adjoining courtyard area.
The surrounding grounds themselves will also be bursting with compelling content, from the food provided by Zavalas Pies, Sweet Life LA, and Bad Jimmy’s to the car and bike clubs in the parking lot with Cabrones Car Club, Ghetto Car Club, and Bikes On The Blvd. That’s not all that is happening for the opening event, so be sure to keep an eye out for local artisans painting live around the grounds alongside video projections, a cash bar and live DJs providing entertainment all of the afternoon and into the evening hours.
‘RAIZ’ opens on Saturday, January 21 with a reception from 4PM to 10PM. The exhibits will remain on view until March 17 at the Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale, California.
