Giggle and Pop: Gary Basemen's Characters Come to Life in LAJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 08 Jun 2010
“I am having a real surreal event with 12 girls in my lil Baseman dresses and 12 folks in my ChouChou costumes over at LACMA,” Gary Baseman tells us.
“I have a wonderful songwriter Carina Round creating an original nursery rhyme for the event, and a choreographer too.”
Baseman's Giggle and Pop! is slated for this Saturday, June 12th at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Presented in the artist's favorite childhood haunt of the La Brea Tar Pits, Giggle and Pop! will feature Baseman's ChouChous and the Tar Pit Girls. The 24 characters will engage the crowds at the park and museum, spreading festive vibes and artful amusement.
Performances at 12pm - 1pm - 3pm (with vignettes in between and until 4pm).
