ForYourArt Announces

Give Good Art 
November 1-24, 2013

A roving gallery of gifts and limited edition art objects
Part of the Hammer Museum’s Arts ReSTORE LA: Westwood project

Showcasing collaborations with Barbara Kruger, Kenny Scharf, Freeway Eyewear, Matthias Merkel Hess and more
Los Angeles (September 16, 2013) – ForYourArt announces Give Good Art, a roving gallery of holiday gifts and limited edition art objects at 1027 Westwood Boulevard, open from November 1-24, 2013. Give Good Art is part of the Hammer Museum’s Arts ReSTORE LA: Westwood urban renewal project.

The roving gallery will feature exclusive ForYourArt collaborations, editions that benefit national arts organizations and holiday gift ideas selected from ForYourArt’s favorite sources for art gifts. Collaborations with Barbara Kruger, Freeway Eyewear, Kenny Scharf, and Matthias Merkel Hess will be presented alongside an installation of works from LACMA, Art Production Fund and Gemini G.E.L. Starting today, select items are available for pre-order online at


Debuting at Give Good Art will be a run of limited edition sunglasses created in collaboration with artist Barbara Kruger and Freeway Eyewear. Kruger’s work is universally known for its bold, eye-catching design, and philosophical themes. Her iconic text Your gaze hits the side of my face appears across the arm of the L.A. RAYS style sunglasses by Freeway. This phrase first appeared in her 1981 artwork next to the profile of an anonymous classical bust. Presented on sunglasses, the wearer transforms into both a voyeur and an object; a play on themes of looking, power, and the gaze. Three styles of Kruger L.A. RAYS are available online for pre-order starting today and a special red edition will be released December 1.
