  • LA Agenda Dec. 5-11

    Black Friday might be over, but there are still 20 shopping days left until Christmas. Get gifts for everyone on your list (and pick up a little something for yourself) at one of this weekend’s great shopping events. Then reward yourself at a holiday-themed show!


    Hammer Conversations: Catherine Opie & Diana Nyad

    Thurs. Dec. 5, 7:30 p.m.
    Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., Westwood

    Talk about girl power! This week’s Hammer Conversations feature chats with two of the most impressive women around. Nyad just became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the protection of a shark cage, and Opie is one of the leading photographers and documentarians of her generation.
