What a fun event! The brain child of three DJ friends: Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation, Philipp Jung of M.A.N.D.Y. and Get Physical Music, and John Wander of Roam Music, U.R. Art is a fun day time dance party where our little ones are welcomed. Being proud Dads themselves, the trio wanted to create a family friendly environment where people could come together in the day and be part of this event that features live art, music and things for kids to do as well.
U.R.Art was set in Bergamot Station. Located on 8 acres of land in Santa Monica, this art gallery is the largest art complex and culture center in Southern California. It houses contemporary galleries, The Santa Monica Museum of Art, architecture and design firms, a cafe and a frame shop.
Plumster went straight for the bouncy castle.
And of course, the ice cream truck.
There is a water station, where if you purchase a water bottle, you get unlimited COLD water all day. A reusable stylish U.R. Art water bottle, unlimited drinking water, and a great cause; of course we bought one for Plum.
With the music grooving and the spirits high, you might just get the urge to hit the dance floor. I say, bring your kids and go for it!
We did a little jewelry shopping.
Ice cold beer sighting on this summary Sunday afternoon! Now that is a beautiful sight to behold ;)
