An Unexpected Art ShowJoin us for ‘An Unexpected Art Show’ in Los Angeles, California on Friday, February 22, from 7 PM to 1 AM. Celebrating The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth, ‘An Unexpected Art Show’ will feature inspired art pieces — from paintings, drawings, and illustrations to prints — from a variety of artists. You can now purchase tickets!

Among the over 20 artists contributing work and attending in person are Tim Kirk, who illustrated the 1975 Tolkien Calendar — the first by an illustrator other than Professor Tolkien, Jerry VanderStelt, who has been teasing us with his upcoming licensed print for The Hobbit, and Donato Giancola, known for his acclaimed Renaissance style paintings of Middle-earth. Also on display will be ‘The Last March of the Ents’ from OneLug. This epic LEGO® creation features an 8 ft. diameter base and the Tower of Orthanc standing 228 LEGO® Bricks (7ft. 2in.) tall depicting a battle scene featuring 23 Ents and 100+ Orcs.

All ages are welcome to attend. A limited number of tickets are available for $15 online and $20 at the door. ‘An Unexpected Art Show’ will be held at Lot 613, a blank-canvas special events space in the Historic Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles, located at 613 Imperial Street. Purchase tickets today!
