La Luz de Jesus celebrates 25 years in two parts, each with its own opening night. Wilson’s piece is being shown in Part 1, opening Oct.7-8 from 8-11pm, and runs for a month. (Part 11 opens Nov 4-5)
The accompanying book, “La Luz de Jesus 25: The Little Gallery That Could” features images of all the 260 artists’ work from both shows.
The Gallery is located at 4633 Hollywood Blvd, LA, CA 90027. Director Matt Kennedy’s number is 323-666-7667, or for information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wilson’s piece is one of the last before he stopped drawing.
La Luz de Jesus became famous as much for its splashy, raucous monthly opening parties as for the often outrageous and confrontational art on its walls. Many artists who are successful today credit Billy Shire with launching their careers, and he is widely acknowledged as a seminal figure in contemporary art movements such as Lowbrow and Pop Surrealism.
