The most interesting art at The Barnsdall Municiple Art Gallery fundraiser was immediately outside the gallery.  Three enormous, balloon-like women reminiscent of inflatable holiday lawn ornaments gracefully slumped forward and swelled again until they were erect.  Sewn from white parachute-like material they performed all evening, dancing and swaying in the night.  I'd give credit to the artist if any information had been provided.  Overall, the art in the gallery was mediocre, and all of it was unidentified.  No credit, no insight, no nothing.  I promised myself I wouldn't turn this into a rant on the state of art in LA, so I will continue to refrain, but boy is it mind-boggling.
