The mobile art studio, MobileMuralLab, in cooperation with the L.A. County Department of Beaches and Harbors and the L.A. County Arts Commission’s Civic Art Program, invites the public to “Nite-Write,” a luminescent, interactive multimedia art experience from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 26, at Dockweiler State Beach.

“Nite-Write” features the MobileMuralLab truck in Parking Lot 2 north of the concession/bike rental area at Dockweiler, the only beach in L.A. County with fire pits, making it a popular evening gathering place.

Event participants will give their creative input for a future mural display on the concession/restroom building at the beach by practicing with UV paints on one side of the “truck,” a step van with high sides that provide a large surface for art work. Guest visual artist Black Light King will provide inspiration with a live UV paint demo under black lights on the other side of the truck.

Participants can also go inside the truck to draw and write on iPads wired to project their creations onto the restroom building and the surface of the parking lot. Wearing white outfits that glow under the UV lights, P&tAGB, a group of artist-performers, will facilitate the creation of the interactive projections and encourage beach visitors to participate.

Under glowing tents near the truck, visual artist Faith Purvey will extract participants’ stories – where they are from, and what brought them to Dockweiler Beach. The stories she gathers will inspire what’s ultimately depicted in the permanent mural display.
A second “Nite-Write” will be held on Saturday, June 23, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The final mural on the concession/restroom building will be unveiled Saturday, September 29.

The event is free and open to the public. No reservations are necessary. Dockweiler State Beach is located at 12000 Vista del Mar, Playa del Rey, CA 90293.

Your furniture arrangement looks amazing! What brilliant patterns and designs! There is definitely a beach vibe occurring with this type of coastal living furniture . This post clearly illustrates my goals and desires for my living area. I have been looking at quality made coastal living furniture. Unfortunately I don't live near the beach and have to imagine a huge body of water.
Finding posts like this is a smart way to allow the reader to solidify their shopping list. Thank you for posting the photograph and information.

What a great option for visiting Los Angeles. I am new to California (bay area) and am planning on visiting Socal soon, your inn seems to have great convenience and amenities. I like that you are within walking distance to the beach and many fine restaurants, real cool.
