Rounding out the year of viral interactive art installations, comes Candytopia (L.A. Hangar Studios, 2627 Medford St.). This sugary exhibit, curated by The Candy Queen herself, Jackie Sorkin, lets you eat and ‘gram your way through seven themed rooms with dozens of brightly colored, candy-coated, photo-ready installations. The event was scheduled to open December 15, but that has now been pushed back due to a last-minute delay, with no updated opening date yet announced.
Prepare your sweet tooth for some action. Throughout the exhibit, they’ll be giving out several different types of candy samples. In addition to the candy freebies, there will be food for purchase at the food trucks on the premises. Unless you take a bunch of extra selfies at each stop, the entire exhibit should take you a little over an hour from start to finish.
If you don’t have tickets yet, you can snag them here. And do it ASAP because you only have until March 15 before Candytopia moves on from L.A. According to their website, the L.A. run will not be extended, and the exhibit will move on to other locations yet to be announced.
We got a sneak peek of the exhibit. Take a look and plan your selfie-staging accordingly.
