An Artistic Threesome

Three exciting exhibitions open today at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. “Forever” showcases Cristina Lei Rodriguez, a local artist whose fantastical plastic sculptures can resemble sequined tumbleweeds or Technicolor fauna from an alien planet and comment on the real and fake in consumerism. “Yes, No, and Everything in Between” features works by Louise Erhard that employ dada-esque collage to break down the ego and even subliminal sexual messaging. One of Erhard’s pieces is a melding of sailors’ mementos from WWI and WWII. And A Little Love is a short film by an artist called Birds Are Nice. True to that name, the film follows a lonely pedestrian guided to love by a bird.

An opening reception for all three art openings takes place Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood (1650 Harrison St., Hollywood) — with food and drinks! Admission costs $7, or $4 for students, seniors, and children. Hours are Saturday and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.; Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Exhibits run until April 10. Call 954-921-3274, or visit artandculturecenter.org.
Tuesdays-Sundays; Fri., March 4, 6 p.m. Starts: March 1. Continues through April 10, 2011
