Description from Carla’s Movie Restaurant, the host of the event:
“Now in its 5th year, the idea of Carla’s Movie Restaurant as a pop-up restaurant grew out of Carla’s passion for the arts and artists, and her desire to have a place to bring artists together and showcase their work in a relaxed community environment, like a restaurant or lounge. The events became student-run from the very beginning, primarily from California State University, Long Beach. The project grew beyond initial expectations due to the creative energy brought in by young artists’ minds.
In 2014, Carla’s Movie Restaurant was awarded the “Emerging Arts Organization” by the Arts Council of Long Beach.
At a CMR pop-up event, the audience can watch student films, music and theater performances, admire and purchase art produced by young artists, as well as participate in an interview and question period to learn more about the creative process directly from the art.”
I will be the featured artist on Carla’s Movie Restaurant in April, 2017. I will be playing a short set of my songs and talking about my artistic process. There will be many other wonderful artists, film-makers, and musicians. It is a truly wonderful event and I hope to see you there!Date: 20170402
