British Polo Day

May 25, 2015 — Leave a comment

On the heels of its success last year, British Polo Day – as the only international polo network of its kind – British presented by Land Rover and leading travel specialist Abercrombie & Kent, returns to the USA to ‘swing their mallets’ for British luxury heritage. Hosted by the President of the Will Rogers Polo Club, Andrew Bossom; Lord Frederick Windsor; and his wife, actress and writer Sophie Winkleman, guests and VIPs will be treated to a day of fast-paced polo. As part of an ongoing commitment to philanthropy, BPD USA is supporting local Los Angeles charity, Homeboy Industries alongside The UK Stem Cell Foundation.

Founded in 2009 by Edward Olver and his friend Tom Hudson, Polo Day Global Series has grown ​to encapsulate a network of 10 annual events, spanning the globe from Abu Dhabi to Australia, Mexico to Morocco (which Sir Richard Branson was recently involved with). With last year’s inaugural British Polo Day USA seeing the likes of The Duke of Argyll, David Walton, Elon Musk, Talulah Riley and Cassian Elwes come together to raise impressive funds for charity, this year’s event is set to raise the bar ever-higher. Nakoa Decoite, ‘big wave’ surfer, polo player and Royal Salute Ambassador will be among those celebrating the fundraising event of the season.

Mr. Events.

The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Juxtapoz magazine are pleased to present new works by Robert Williams in SLANG Aesthetics! in conjunction with 20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz, a group exhibition by guest curators Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace Gallery and Gary Pressman of Copro Gallery. Both exhibitions will be on view at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery from February 22nd to April 19th, 2015. These two exhibitions commemorate the 20th anniversary of Juxtapoz magazine, founded by Williams in 1994, and it’s vast influence on several generations of artists.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 1.29.19 PM

Juxtapoz magazine allowed Robert Williams to create a platform for this young and insurgent energy on the West Coast and, with its unprecedented success, Williams became widely upheld as the godfather of the lowbrow and pop surrealist art movements. His first major body of work to debut in Los Angeles in well over a decade, SLANG! Aesthetics will feature 25 new oil paintings by the artist alongside a suite of drawings and a series of large-scale sculptures fabricated with the assistance of Gentle Giant Studios.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 1.51.45 PM

What once began as an alternative magazine, Juxtapoz is now the most widely disseminated art publication in the world. Predicated on the rejection of the artificial boundaries that kept “high” art removed from popular culture, Juxtapoz effectively broke down those walls to allow young artists a chance at their own history.

Mr. Events.

Every fall, thousands of compassionate people gather to raise funds and change hearts for farm animals through the Walk for Farm Animals, a series of non-competitive walking events held each year in cities across the United States and Canada. Others participate virtually through our “Sleep In for Farm Animals.” Walkers raise vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s life-saving work and promote kindness toward animals. The Walk for Farm Animals is a positive way to speak out on behalf of animals who cannot speak for themselves and make a real difference in their lives.

walk

The 2013 Walk for Farm Animals was a huge success! Thanks to the support and amazing dedication of more than 4,800 walkers across 38 events, Farm Sanctuary raised $438,000 for farm animals. Musical entertainment provided by Nina and RandaFatMagic, and DJ Nametag.

The Walk for Farm Animals raises vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s lifesaving work and brings together thousands of people to change hearts and minds about farm animals. Will you join Los Angeles to support compassion for all?
