18th Street presents its final exhibition of 2009 entitled Without A Car In The World (100 Car-less Angelinos Tell Stories of Living in Los Angeles). This exhibition features 100 photographs by artist Diane Meyer with accompanying narratives from persons who live without a car in Los Angeles. The event begins Saturday, October 17, at the 18th Street Arts Center with an opening reception from 6:00 PM-9:00 PM. The exhibition addresses how car culture has shaped psychological, spatial and geographic perceptions of Los Angeles. The subjects of Ms. Meyer’s photographs have given up their cars for a variety of reasons ranging from ideological, financial or health-related issues. By bringing together these various voices through the images and text, the exhibition will ultimately acknowledge transportation alternatives. It will also provide a voice to a group of individuals often perceived to be disenfranchised in some way for not having an automobile. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday 11am-6pm. 18th Street Arts Center is located at 1639 18th Street, Santa Monica.
