This past weekend, art aficionados had the chance to peruse the different art galleries at The LA Art Show, which was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. During the 2021 Opening Night premiere party, pop singer Rita Ora was in attendance to host the event filled with art, food and beverages. The show opened to the public on Friday through Sunday, featuring over 200,000 square feet of over 70 galleries. With so many artworks, there should be something for everybody. Since we are Nerd Reactor, there were some galleries that caught our attention featuring Star Wars, Disney, and more.

The M.S. Rau gallery had an actual desk from Napoleon Bonaparte during his exile to St. Helena in 1815. The desk resided in his own bedroom at Longwood House, and it still has ink and wine glass stains, most likely left from the former French military leader.

These are but a few of the many galleries showcased at The LA Art Show, which was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 29th to August 1st. It marks the fair’s 26th year anniversary and the 50th anniversary at the convention center.
