Trunk Show with Gina Amato Lough – MOLAA

Jewelry-making might not be the first thing to come to mind when thinking of art, but it’s quite the art form itself. Think about it – you have to choose the right combinations of materials and colors for someone to think ‘fabuloso! I want to wear that.’ Take inspiration from Los Angeles-born jewelry designer Gina Amato Lough this Sunday, May 5 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. as she presents her unique designs. They will go on sale at a free, public Trunk Show hosted by the Museum of Latin American Art so that means you can browse her work and then head into the museum for some more art (now on display is Marta Chilindron’s “Integral Geometries”). It’s a good time to do some accessory shopping before that wild Cinco de Mayo party.

El Gran Baile de Cinco Auction – Gilmore Adobe

If the beginning of May has you feeling philanthropic, why not do good while attending a swank soiree? For the 17th year, El Gran Baile de Cinco lets you do just that. You can purchase a ticket – at $150 each – to support the nonprofit Para Los Niños, an organization here in LA. The center fosters children’s creativity through music, art and more, while preparing them for an education that will lead to a better future. The event will take place Friday, May 3 from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the gardens of the historic Gilmore Adobe. Enjoy cocktails, students’ art and a silent auction all while knowing you did your part to give back.

San Pedro 1st Thursday Art Walk – Downtown San Pedro

More and more parts of LA offer galleries to visit so it only makes sense that you can go to more than one art walk in different parts of the city on different days of the month. Mark Thursday, May 2 on your calendario for the San Pedro 1st Thursday Art Walk, which will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Visit locales like Gallery Azul and artist studios – and we’re not talking any studios, the list even includes a stained glass studio – all while enjoying food truck grub along with DJs and local musicians. You never know what kind of art you might find when you explore the city.
