Jennifer Coolidge is now on TikTok. Out of all the celebrities who have joined the video-sharing app, hers has to be one of the most memorable entries. She came with a pal (Jennifer Lopez) and a poem — “Jenny From the Block” — by the woman who “used to have a little, now [has] a lot.” I’m Steven Vargas, your L.A. Goes Out host, and while we wait for her next video to drop, let’s check out these weekend recommendations from the crew:
1. “Art Collector Starter Kit IX”
Looking to start your art collection but don’t have an art collector budget? Corey Helford Gallery in downtown Los Angeles will be hosting its ninth annual “Art Collector Starter Kit” group show, where you can purchase an affordable 12-inch by 12-inch work from emerging and established artists. Artists include HUSH, Hikari Shimoda, Brandi Milne, Eric Joyner, Miho Hirano and Troy Brooks. This show, recommended by The Times’ Deborah Vankin, opens Saturday with a reception 7 to 11 p.m. that’s free to the public. “ACSK IX” opens alongside Richard Ahnert’s “While We Wait” exhibition, which explores the kinship between humans and animals. How? Take a look at this image of a panda on a rocket to get an idea of what’s to come. The gallery is open from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
