Gary Baseman Invents New Holiday


Inventing a new holiday is a tall order -- something that generally only the government or Hallmark attempts, so leave it to multi-faceted Gary Baseman to create the coolest holiday in years. It's called La Noche de la Fusion and it will be celebrated worldwide, or at least in Culver City, California, on Saturday May 2nd. Here's what's in store for us:

50 new Baseman works
Fire performers
Samba dancers
Baseman characters come to life
DJs spinning
Carnival games
Models in Carnival (as in Rio) costumes based on Baseman drawings
And all kinds of debauchery we can't even begin to explain.

And in order to celebrate along with Gary, guests are encouraged to come dressed as you perceive their True Selves. . .in whatever form that may be.

Go to Gary's website for more info. Or just throw caution to the wind and show up for what's sure to be the most talked about event in L.A.
