LOS ANGELES TOURISM KICKS OFF MEGA SPORTING EVENTS

LOS ANGELES TOURISM & CONVENTION BOARD CELEBRATES LA’S COMEBACK, KICKS OFF THE DESTINATION’S HISTORIC DECADE OF MEGA SPORTING EVENTS WITH SERIES OF EVENTS IN NEW YORK INCLUDING A LOS ANGELES-THEMED TAILGATE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

For its first client, media and consumer events since the beginning of the pandemic, Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (Los Angeles Tourism) set its sights on New York, LA’s largest domestic visitor market. Aligned with the timing of the Rams vs. Giants game taking place at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, October 17, Los Angeles Tourism is hosting four days of activity beginning this Friday, October 15, with a preview of the Los Angeles-themed tailgate experience that is open to the public on October 16 and 17 and concluding on October 18 with an intimate luncheon for key sales clients.

Serving as a kickoff to the decade of mega sporting events LA is hosting beginning with Super Bowl LVI in February 2022, Los Angeles Tourism officials will visit with key clients and media to share information on the destination’s safe and responsible reopening and LA’s seemingly endless supply of new hotels, restaurants, venues and cultural exhibitions.

“New York is an important market for us, both in terms of leisure and group business, so when the time was right to host our first mission since the pandemic, we knew it had to be in the Big Apple,” stated Adam Burke, the President & CEO for Los Angeles Tourism. “While technology has been instrumental in keeping us connected during these challenging times, I think we can all agree there is no replacement for meeting in person. We are elated to see our industry colleagues and share all that’s new in the destination as LA continues its comeback.”

On Saturday, October 16, and Sunday, October 17, Los Angeles Tourism is hosting an “LA Tailgate,” which is open to the public, at the aptly named TailGate Outdoor Sports Bar in Brooklyn. The experience features tacos from Enrique Olvera’s new LA taqueria, Ditroit; beer and wine from LA brands Golden Road Brewing and Angeleno Wine Co.; LA trivia hosted by dumbfoundead; major trip giveaways including round-trip air transportation to LA courtesy of American Airlines; and a limited-edition merch drop from LA Tourism x Obey Clothing by House Industries and Studio Number One.

Over the next decade, Los Angeles plays host to an historic line up of sporting events including the 2022 Super Bowl LVI; 2022 MLB All-Star Game; 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship; 123rd U.S. Open Championship at LA Country Club; 2024 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball West Region Championship; and, the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Paolo Uggetti × ESPN

Paolo Uggetti, one of the nation’s most talented young sports journalists, has joined ESPN as a college football writer.

Uggetti has covered the NBA nationally for The Ringer for the past five years, writing features on everything from Devin Booker’s Mexican heritage to players’ mental health in the bubble, to tracking down the KIA that Blake Griffin dunked over in the 2011 dunk contest.

Uggetti also interned with The Wall Street Journal sports department, where he discovered the kinds of stories he loves to write — niche, sometimes quirky, but always human.

“After working on finding compelling stories in the NBA for a few seasons, I’m really looking forward to diving into the unique culture of college football alongside the team at ESPN,” said Uggetti. “The number of story opportunities in a sport that’s going through so much change is exciting, and I can’t wait to get a chance to tell some of those stories.”

ESPN college football deputy editor Ryan Canner-O’Mealy added: “We couldn’t be more excited to add Paolo to our talented team. His eye for interesting stories and history of in-depth reporting will make for a seamless transition into the world of college football.”

Uggetti is proudly from El Salvador but moved to Los Angeles when he was nine years old, falling in love with other sports besides fútbol. Uggetti is fluent in his native Spanish and graduated from USC in 2017. There, he covered the Trojans football team for two seasons and won two LA Press Club awards for stories he wrote for the student-run online publication.

About midwxst

From the oft-overlooked state of Indiana, midwxst, born Edgar Sarratt III, is a genre-defier combining hyperpop and digicore with hip-hop alongside candid lyrics that reveal he isn’t afraid to let his true feelings show. midwxst shares, “A lot of people expected me to be a trapper, rapping about guns and all the generic mainstream stuff. When I talk about how your own mental health and emotions can be the most dangerous thing you possess, especially as a teenager or young adult, people get such a different vibe from me and that’s what I strive for.”

Crowns & Hops Brewing Co. Pays Homage

Crowns & Hops Brewing Co., the first Black-owned craft beer brand in Inglewood, CA, is further cementing its dedication to the City of Inglewood through its brand mission of preserving culture, building community, and expanding the palate of consumers in the area.

The commitment starts with the brewery laying roots in the community through its 14,000 square foot location off Manchester Ave. and Crenshaw Blvd. Crowns Inglewood is a community establishment based in the heart of Inglewood, and it will provide a safe family-friendly space to gather, dine and have delicious independent craft beer. To help support this mission, Crowns & Hops Brewing Co. recently launched their equity crowdfunding campaign “OWN CROWNS” to help raise the capital needed for the new location.

“We have always celebrated the mission of community and ownership in the craft beer industry. We’re excited to bring these concepts of investment and equity to a region that has been starved of resources for generations,” said Teo Hunter, COO & Head of Beer Operations.

This investment opportunity allows the community to participate in the revitalization efforts of a city. Crowns & Hops will offer locals and visitors alike an opportunity to publicly connect in Inglewood/South L.A. to enjoy premium products produced in Inglewood. Co-founders Beny Ashburn & Teo Hunter believe this opportunity will allow for the community to invest in the city’s development while supporting Black-owned businesses in the region.

As stated by Beny Ashburn, CEO, “Our brand started with the community. Now, we want to offer the community an opportunity to own a part of Crowns in the City of Champions and wherever we expand.”  360 Magazine is very excited to associate with a company, whose values are to give back to the community. 

In addition, last month the brewery co-hosted a panel discussion and mixer at All In Co-Working with the Inglewood Chamber of Commerce and the City of Inglewood in celebration of Black Business Month. The panel specifically discussed balancing the benefits, resources, and initiative in a developing city, with Inglewood Mayor James Butts opening the event by announcing the official date for the ground-breaking of the new Los Angeles Clippers arena. Butts also delivered a heartfelt message about the ongoing progress and growth happening within the city and amongst its residents.

The brewery is also adding a new beer to its selection of craft brews. The beer is called “Inglewood Juice,” with the name paying homage to the city of Inglewood and showcasing the city’s place in their hearts. Inglewood Juice is a juicy IPA full of tropical notes and a traditional hop signature made popular by the West Coast IPA. This beer was brewed for the people of Inglewood, California, a city full of diversity, swag, hustle, resilience, progressiveness, and love.

The brewery will also be participating in two upcoming events. On September 18, they will join Beers without Beards, a female-focused virtual festival where co-owner Beny Ashburn will be speaking on a panel. On September 30, Crowns & Hops Brewing Co. will join the virtual event Gathering Spot LA.

LA Arts Show

LA ART SHOW’S SPECIAL SUMMER EDITION CELEBRATES MAJOR SUCCESS WITH RECORD SALES FOR MANY PARTICIPATING GALLERIES

The Return to Live Art Fairs with COVID-Conscious Guidelines Limited Attendees But Double Sales

Among the first events to return live, this weekend the LA Art Show wrapped a socially distanced special summer edition of the fair with half the attendance but double the sales. Galleries, art dealers, curators, collectors, and art lovers masked up and made their way to Los Angeles Convention Center this past weekend to surround themselves with arts and culture, marking the first time in 18 months for some visitors.

Utilizing 150,000 square feet, new director Kassandra Voyagis was able to create an airy show with room to roam. In past years, as one of the most popular art fairs, the LA Art Show has hosted 65k guests, showcasing up to 150 galleries and museums from around the globe. Protocols for 2021 included wide aisles, clean air circulation, mandatory masks and limited total attendance of 30k art lovers over the course of 4 days. However, the decreased capacity certainly did not diminish the experience.

The event kicked off with a visit from Mayor Eric Garcetti, celebrating both the return of the show and the 50th anniversary of the Los Angeles Convention Center, followed by a successful opening night complete with red carpet. The celebration was hosted by international pop star Rita Ora in conjunction with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® for a celebration of art and charitable components. The excitement was palpable, with an air of festivity from the outfits to the assumed smiles under everyone’s masked faces. The exhilaration continued throughout the weekend, heightened by a surprise visit from Arnold Schwarzenegger to the delight of the galleries.

The excitement of this year’s show was evident from the moment patrons stepped foot on the show floor, where they were instantly met with an NFT introduction, bringing live NFT sales to a consumer market. This presence is thanks to Vellum LA, the first physical gallery for NFT-backed digital art in Los Angeles ahead of their launch in September, and SuperRare, the leading and most trusted NFT marketplace for digital art. The strictly NFT gallery highlighted the most exciting female artists currently in the digital space, with their brand new show Sea Change. In a partnership with SuperRare as the LA Art Show’s official NFT marketplace, live NFT auctions were accessible to everyone on the floor, creating an exciting energy from the get go. Eight of the twelve artists sold beyond their reserve with a total Vellum LA and SuperRare sales of over $247,000. Additionally, Vellum’s technology partner StandardVision released their newest product Luma Canvas to great interest and even a sale of this first ever museum-grade LED display for digital art and NFTs, ushering in the art screens of the future.

Traditional galleries also had quite a busy weekend full of sales. Arcadia Gallery, one of the galleries returning to the show for another successful year, sold 65 pieces, a pleasant surprise for the veteran participant. Rehs Galleries, a New York based institution, was overwhelmed by the sales of the weekend, noting that every buyer was a new buyer. In fact, most galleries noted strong sales to new collectors, establishing meaningful connections with an entirely new clientele. Local favorite, Simard Bilodeau Contemporary said each of their artists sold a piece if not multiple, marking a successful weekend for their artists. Copro Gallery, known for their steeped history in lowbrow and pop surrealism was overwhelmed with sales, thrilled by the unexpected rush. 14-year-old Tex Hammond, nearly sold out of his work on display at Acosta Arts, an incredible feat for any artist, let alone the youngest to ever exhibit. Other galleries with stellar sales include Jane Kahan Gallery, Aibo Gallery, Abend Gallery, Peri Art, and first timer from Paris, Spaceless Gallery.

Continuing the many successes of the weekend, Citibank returned with an important presence at the show. Not only did they create a beautiful physical space, but they extended the reach of the fair to those unable to attend with a series of virtual gallerist talks. Each of the four featured galleries–the aforementioned Simard Bilodeau Contemporary, Caldwell Snyder Gallery, Pigment Gallery, and Rebecca Hossack Gallery – joined the other exhibitors with high sales and exposure.

This special LA Art Show Summer Edition was the idea of new director, Kassandra Voyagis. Having been met with such success and resounding positive feedback from visitors and exhibitors alike, the show organizers couldn’t feel more hopeful about the state of art fairs post-pandemic. Those who missed the show, or who attended and are already experiencing LA Art Show withdrawals, do not have to wait long. The LA Art Show returns January 19-23, 2022 meaning there’s less than a six month wait!

About the LA Art Show

The LA Art Show creates one of the largest international art fairs in the United States, providing an exciting, immersive, insider art experience to sponsors, their select guests and VIP clients. The show attracts an elite roster of national and international galleries, acclaimed artists, highly regarded curators, architects, design professionals, along with discerning collectors. This innovative, exceptional cultural environment attracts executives and board members of Southern California businesses, state, county, and municipal government representatives, as well as leaders of the region’s cultural institutions. Attendees are trendsetters, influencers and alpha consumers, who seek and demand the newest and the best in all areas of their lives—art, design, food, technology and travel being specific passion points.
