LA’s most forward-thinking art venture, CARTWHEEL, announces its second annual pop-up art exhibition at Hollywood’s new gallery space, PROJECT Gallery. CARTWHEEL’s pop-up will feature eight artists, comprised of street, outsider, surf, and new contemporary artists from around the U.S., most from the national art fair circuit, many of whom have never shown in Los Angeles before, selected by CARTWHEEL founder Cindy Schwarzstein. This is an opportunity for collectors and art enthusiasts to immerse themselves in current art and connect with the artists and the larger creative community. By combing fresh, bold art with daily interactive events, CARTWHEEL creates a mini-art fair-like environment at PROJECT Gallery space. This four-day art event consisting of installations, performances, and artist meet-and-greets will commence with an open-to-the-public exhibit on Thursday, March 21, from 7pm to 10pm.
- Corey Hagberg: A mural artist from Rockford, Illinois who works with paint and screen prints on both canvases and walls; his taboo topics are presented with optimism
- Evo Love: A Miami multi-media artist who creates unique altar-like assemblages and installations that focus on personal and universal symbols of belief
- Greg Haberny: A New York artist who builds complex installations and assemblages that are part of prestigious public and private U.S. and international collections
- Lydia Emily: An acclaimed L.A. street artist that makes her prints and paintings from a foundation of profound social responsibility and a duty to stand up and speak out

- RADICAL!: At only 21, with detailed illustrative work based on social observations, this young Albany artist has exhibited in New York City, Boston, and Copenhagen
- Roy Gonzalez: This icon in the Orange County extreme sport industry’s art and design circles creates some of the most definitive images of the surf, skate, and music industries
