Summer in the City: Best of BOLD and Beyond
The third annual BOLD Summer event kicked-off on August 1. The street wide celebration on Rodeo Drive featured DJ’s, artists, concerts and food trucks signaling the late-night hours across Beverly Hills on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Here is a snapshot of some favorite and groundbreaking moments.
World-renown Boston based artist Janet Echelman’s breathtaking installation was draped above Santa Monica Boulevard between The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and Beverly Gardens Park. Spanning nearly 85 feet in length, the piece was lit up at night with a hue of LED lights.
On August 24, the BOLD festivities came full circle during a closing celebration with “Next Night, The BOLD Finale,” presented by the Next Night Beverly Hills Committee along with the City Council, more live music, dancing, interactive art plus a beer and wine garden.
In a separate activation, the Louis Vuitton X exhibit popped-up in a vibrant pink and orange version of the old Brooks Brothers building. Inside was a mix of candy colored clothing and bag displays, graffiti art and Snapchat-ready moments. The best news: it’s running through September 15, 2019.
