Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Auction Party: Recap 1Juxtapoz // Monday, 16 Nov 2009
Every mover and shaker in the Los Angeles area made it out to celebrate the 15 years Juxtapoz has been in print and to take a peek at over 140 pieces of original artwork from top international contemporary artists.
Over 2,000 guests in attendance enjoyed complimentary food from Gram & Papa’s, cupcakes by Frosted Cupcakery, coffee from Marley Coffee, beer from Amstel Light and cocktails from Sino Tequila.
Mister Cartoon showed off his multi-million dollar vintage car collection, DJ Garth Trinidad kept the house moving, and attendees mixed and mingled with top artists and industry folk, fans, and art lovers alike.
All in all, it’s safe to say 15 years with Juxtapoz has been a good time. Enough talking; we’ll let the party speak for itself in photos by Randy Dodson and SA Studios.
