This Friday, in East L.A.: The Vincent Price Art Museum reopens.

The Vincent Price Art Museum at East L.A. College is opening the doors to its brand new building and it looks like it’s going to be all kinds of boss. In fact, it’s making me wish I wasn’t going to be out of town — because the inaugural shows appear to be all kinds of fantastic, including one on the roots of Mexican modernism and another featuring eight high-profile alums (including figures such as Kent Twitchell, Gronk, John Valadez and Diane Gamboa — who painted the above piece, Consensual Behavior, in 2003). Things get rolling this Friday, May 20, at noon. If you live in L.A., seems like a must-do.
