Update: Barnsdall Art Gallery Open Sunday for 'Dapper Day'

Subway riders with a day pass and a snazzy look will visit historic sites accessible by subway--including the hilltop gallery in Los Feliz.

It's "part parade, part tour, part performance art."

That's how organizers describe Sunday's "Dapper Day on the Subway."

Organized by Rail LA, the event will bring riders in evening attire to various historic locations for special events all day.

The riders will gather at the Hollywood and Vine Red Line station at 9:30 a.m. They'll make their first stop at Los Feliz's Barnsdall Park around 10 a.m.

Admission will be $7 for full and free access to the historic gallery: no guided tours, but instead a rare chance to wander the galleries freely.

Public transit will spirit the riders to Olvera Street, Union Station, Angels Flight and Chinatown later in the day as well.

Participants must ride the subway and possess a $5 All Day Pass.

Huh? This article says "free to roam the galleries." The galleries are always open and free. This tour is of the Hollyhock House, not the galleries, and is $7, not free. And no, you don't HAVE to ride the subway to take the tour! And who says it's "evening attire"? Not the organizers!

railLA is opening the art galleries early - they usually open at noon. Also, we've arranged an exclusive open house which is different than the usual tours - there will be docents stationed in different rooms to speak about the house and answer questions.
