    1pm – 4pm

    Connie Conway will be signing her new book L.A. After Sunset at MONA! The author’s latest from her on-going project is a series of photographs that capture the beauty and essence of Los Angeles’ dramatic transformation at sunset.“Conway’s photos are noir in full color as if Raymond Chandler were art directing each shot of Hollywood and Dtown with existing light. Other photos appear to be shot through Charles Bukowski’s whiskey glass, but they too only utilize existing light to create amber shadows and sparkling miracles within a camera lens.” – J. Eric Lynxwiler, Museum of Neon ArtYou can view Connie Conway’s photographs at www.connieconway.com
