Awesomness in Art (LA and LA)

If you live in LA, swing by Echo Park Film Center (in conjunction with LA Filmforum). October 5 from 7-10 pm - 1200 N. Alvarado Street.
About it: established filmmakers and visual artists will use stop-motion techniques to tell stories, examine visual phenomena, and make political statements in a collection of short videos. The line-up of videos includes both local and international artists and is curated by artist and animator Sarah Klein.

Also, if you're an artist or animator, and you'll be in New Orleans for the Southeastern College Art Conference on September 27, from 2-5, come see the amazing Stephanie Hutin speak at the New Orleans Marriott. Chairs: Rachele Riley and Stephanie Hutin; featuring: John Jota LeaƱos, California College of the Arts: Subaltern Animations; Yam Lau, York University: Image-Animation-Life, Pamela Taylor Turner, Virginia Commonwealth University: Everyday Ephemera, Rachele Riley, University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Stephanie Hutin, Independent Artist/Educator and Director of The New School for Post-Animative Thought will discuss their ongoing collaborative work: The Unbearable Slightness of Being.
