The Melrose Trading Post is showing off LA's local artists!
In true "Choose Your Adventure" style, the Melrose Trading Post will take you through the market to discover the local artists that show their work at this LA community market. You can choose the old-fashioned method with a brochure that includes a map of the market OR the eco-friendly way via Facebook, Twitter, Instragram or the MTP Blog on your smart phone or tablet!
Each week several artists, artisans, craftspeople and designers come together to show off their work. On Sunday, April 28th 2013 we will be highlighting the artists in our market who live and breathe LA. Their artwork will be displayed for you to look at... SLOWLY. The unique part of MTP's Slow Art Day is that you can speak with the artist about their work while you're looking at it! Slow Art patrons will be given a brochure to show them how to find the artists in our market of treasures. You will also be invited to share your findings while lunching in the food court.
About MTP: Described as a cool, eclectic gem of a place to find treasures and rare goodies, the Melrose Trading Post is a great Sunday destination. You can expect to find something to make you say "wow" every single time you visit. Enjoy the food court in the beautifully landscaped upper quad. Relax to the live jazz band's melodic vibes. Treat yourself to a different kind of day.
The $2 admission fee goes directly to support programs for Fairfax High School students. Contribute to your community while having a fun, unique day outdoors! Hope to see you soon!
Located in the parking lot of Fairfax High School (Corner of Fairfax and Melrose Avenue)
