This is a great chance to give back to a good friend of artists everywhere.

“A Little Help From My Friends” The Richard Godfrey fundraiser has spontaneously turned into the party of the year for artists, collectors and supporters alike. Usually the Downtown LA Arts Community operates invisibly in their studios strewn across Los Angeles proper.  Here is your opportunity, to party with this amazing underground community, to help one of their own.

Please join us in this revelry of art, over 70 original works of art will be on sale, at a fraction of their value, for our friend Richard Godfrey.

MC’s for the evening are the inimitable Emmeric and Rick Robinson

Los Angeles does have a center for art and it is downtown!
