2:00 PM Young Geun Lee: Opening Reception Referencing traditional Korean folk art, artist Young Geun Lee's work expresses the fundamental joys, sorrows, and demands of Korean commoners in the past. Emblematic and humorous images convey the success of family, the harmony of yin and yang, the wish for longevity without diseases, and the fair distribution of wealth, using symbols to fit into modern forms of expression as well as the colors blue, red, brown, white, and black, colors which in Eastern countries are seen as creating order in the universe. Lee draws on his culture, country, and life experience to create a beautiful garden of fundamental things. Join us to celebrate the opening of a three-month exhibit.

2:00 PM Les Femmes Underground Film Festival The International Les Femmes Underground is a film festival centred on the subversive, unique, and innovative. LEFUFF, showcases artists from all walks of life creating work which redefines the manner in which women are represented in mainstream cinema. Making its debut in 2016, Les Femmes Underground is premiering in Los Angeles as the first ever traveling women's underground film festival. Les Femmes Underground was created as a response to the decline of feminist icons and role models in the media. As feminists, we believe it is our responsibility to empower new generations of young women to generate work which breaks away from society's gendered roles. Les Femmes Underground seeks to premier first time under-represented emerging feminist film-makers and artists.

2:00 PM Stage: The Explorer's Club Neil Benjamin's post-colonial comedy lambastes Victorian rectitude, varieties of male sexism, and the British love of Empire (one even claims he discovered the "East Pole"). How? By having a woman join the heretofore all-male Explorer's Club in 1879. She's Phyllida Spotte Hume (Jessica John, sharp and funny). Theintrepid adventuressdiscovered a Lost City (at the "worst place on earth") and earned the right to be a member. As proof, she brings Luigi, a native, painted blue. The premise intrigues, but the slight play hops from episode to episode without an engine driving it forward. Lamb's Players production, ably directed by Robert Smyth, gets every possible laugh from the piece. And the male actors (Francis Gercke, Ross Hellwig, John Rosen, Brian Mackey, Omri Schein, Paul Eggington, and Brian Salmon) catch a series of sliding glass tumblers with near-Olympian dexterity.Worth a try.

Admission/Cost: $24 - $74
