L.A. Underground Art Scene this weekend

Here's my weekly round-up of art events to see this weekend:

For sure, the Scion Installation project It Was On Earth That I Knew Joy in Culver City on Saturday, February 20th featuring illustration, video and installation art by relevant contemporary artists. I've been looking forward to this event ever since the last Scion video installation in March and the Scion Papershapers show. The reception is 7pm-10pm, and has complimentary valet and open bar. 3521 Helms Ave., Culver City.

I'm also glad that nearby on 6023 Washington Blvd in Culver City the same night, Yoskay Yamamoto will have his opening reception at LeBasse Projects for "Tell Me A Story," a sculptural exhibition in conjunction with Yoshita Amano's "Deva Loka: Los Angeles" show. I love Yoskay's sculptures, which are contemporary and beautiful, and am looking forward to discovering Yoshitaka Amano's work.

Also opening Saturday night is the exhibit for Juxtapoz magazine founder Robert Williams, featuring new work "Conceptual Realism in the Service of the Hypothetical" 6-9 pm at Cal State Northridge's art gallery--18111 Nordhoff Street, Northridge. He'll be hosting a personal tour on Monday, February 22 at 10 am, gratis. I love Juxtapoz, and it'll be interesting to catch the personal tour to meet him in person.

Enjoy your weekend and hope you can catch some great art!
