Hot sauce lovers! If you're in Southern California, you are invited to check out L.A. Heat: Taste-Changing Condiments, a new art exhibition inspired by two of America's leading hot sauce brands, Huy Fong Sriracha and Tapatio. It runs March 13 - July 12 at the Chinese American Museum in downtown Los Angeles.
Do you like it spicy? The exhibition is the brainchild of CAM Interim Executive Director and Curator Steven Y. Wong, who challenged local artists to create works with the hot sauce products in mind. The result is a collection of thirty imaginative pieces in a variety of mediums.
The exhibition kicks off this Thursday with an opening reception. Here are some details:
