Yutaka Sone & Benjamin Weissman: What Every Snowflake Knows in Its Heart
Santa Monica Museum of Art (Santa Monica) 8-10pm

Opening reception for a collaborative exhibition by Yutaka Sone and Benjamin Weissman. This exhibition was conceived when Sone, a contemporary artist known for his architectural and natural landscapes, and Weissman, a writer and visual artist, met on top of Mammoth Mountain at the suggestion of their colleague Paul McCarthy. In the five years since, the two artists have created an exhibition based on their passion for snow and related subjects including skiing, forests, mountains, and athletics. What Every Snowflake Knows in Its Heart includes paintings, sculptures and an animatronic ski mountain. On view through April 5, 2014.
