This week, we’re attending The Other Art Fair, getting our Instagram on at The Egg House, treating our taste buds at the Latin Food Fest, catching performances at the Native American Festival and seeing works by California women artists.
The Other Art Fair
You can see the work of over 140 artists and perhaps pick up a new favorite piece, at The Other Art Fair, March 29-31, at The Magic Box at The Reef, 1933 S. Broadway.
Curated by Saatchi Art, the fair features thousands of works, some selling for as low as $150.
“Whether you’re a first-time art buyer, seasoned collector, curator, investor, gallery owner, art lover or anything in between, you are guaranteed to find something to add to (or start!) your collection,” organizers say.
The fair will also feature immersive experiences, live DJ sets, event tours and art talks.
The fair is open from 3-10 p.m., March 29; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., March 30; and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are $15 each day and available through Eventbrite.com.
There’s a new pop-up in town, this time promising an “eggcellent” adventure.
The Egg House, 708 N. Croft Ave., in West Hollywood, describes itself as the first egg-themed pop-up space offering a multi-sensory experience.
“With multiple rooms of immersive installations and interactive experiences, The Egg House is a house full of dreams and fantasies that saves you from the busy concrete city and brings you a shareable fun time to spend with friends and family,” theegghouse.com says.
The Egg House features “Instagrammable” installations, interactive design, vendors with egg-themed treats and a gift shop.
The Egg House will be around through April 14. Tickets are $34 for adults, $24 for seniors and children under 10. See theegghouse.com for tickets.

The fest kicks off from 5:30-9:30 p.m., Friday with “Chef’s Night Out,” a wine, spirits and beer party. There will be a DJ, an opportunity to get photos with your favorite chefs and a silent auction.

This celebration highlights performances of live Native American dancing, drumming, explanations, singing, flute music and storytelling. You can talk with artists, see craft demonstrations and tour lodging displays. There will also be activities for children.
Organizers emphasize that this is a performance event, not a pow wow.
Performers and performances include hoop dancers, Hopi flute players, Native American dance exhibitions and dreamcatcher-making demonstrations.
The event is free.
California Women Artists Emerge: 1860-1960
The Pasadena Museum of History, 470 W. Walnut St., is celebrating the work of women artists in a new exhibition.
“Something Revealed: California Women Artists Emerge, 1860-1960” features more than 300 artworks of women who were working in the arts beginning in the mid-19th century in California. From traditional to abstractions, focusing on works produced between the mid-1800s through the 1950s, the exhibition presents an eclectic array of oil paintings, works on paper, ceramics, metalcraft, textiles and sculpture.
“‘Something Revealed; California Women Artists Emerge, 1860-1960’” stands to dispel the misconception that women were limited in their subject matter and demonstrate that women, especially here in California, have historically made their mark in a male dominated world,” pasadenahistory.org says “The exhibition will show a long history of excellence in female-created art and prove that women could and did contribute to the evolution of style, technique and exploration in the world of art.”
The exhibition runs through April 13.
The museum is open from noon to 5 p.m., Wednesday-Sunday. Admission is $9.
