About the “In Your Face” exhibit now showing at the Angel City Brewery, Sherman writes: “This exhibition is for anyone interested in finding out more about the rich history of the artists who made the arts district the thriving, creative environment it is today.”

The “three movements,” as Sherman calls them, each document an aspect of Downtown history from the Art Dock to Al’s Bar.

Sherman goes on to discuss Seemayer’s solo exhibit at the District Gallery, “Signs of the Times,” which continues through May 26. It is a group of pieces inspired by Occupy L.A.
