Scott Musgrove for beinArt Surreal Collective show

June has begun and with it an onslaught of shows across the globe. Leading the charge this week, due to the sheer breadth of shows, is Los Angeles. The massive Culver City Art Walk takes places this Saturday with many of the galleries doing special group shows for this event and if you still have it in you after trekking about Culver City there are huge shows from the likes of, Mike Stilkey (interviewed), Skullphone and a showing of later works from Andy Warhol at the trendy Prism space. As we head into the month ahead, some very monumental shows are upon us, so get some rest and get ready… there’ll be no rest for the art obsessed this month!
