Beacon Arts Building presents Constructing Fantasy: Sculpture from Los Angeles, curated
by Beacon Arts Building director, Renée Fox. Constructing Fantasy is an exhibition of
small to large-scale sculpture by Los Angeles artists. This show invites visitors to explore
the semblance of a fairytale as they meander through the spaces created by sculpture
placement throughout the exhibition. Just as the identity of Los Angeles is constructed by
the dreams of its residents, artwork in this show stands in as images from childhood fairy
tales, creating a new narrative in the imagination of each viewer.

Artists included are:
Catherine Fairbanks, Michelle Carla Handel, Jeffrey Hastings, Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor,
Larissa James, Winter Jenssen, Eric Johnson, Rachel Kaster, Sophie Lee, Travis Novak,
Snezana Petrovic & Pontus Wilfors.

Constructing Fantasy opens Saturday, June 30 and runs through August 5, 2012. Exhibition
special events include an opening reception on Saturday, June 30, 6:00 – 9:00pm and a
closing reception on Sunday, August 5, 1:00 – 4:00pm, which will include a conversation
