DOWNTOWN: Gary Hustwit's movie Helvetica was all about typeface design and his movie Objectified was all about industrial design. His newest, Urbanized, is all about urban design and the way cities grow. The film gets two screenings at the Downtown Independent on Sunday; Hustwit will be there to host post-show discussions.

COMMERCE: Everyone's favorite fortress-mall, the Citadel Outlets, has just gotten these two murals, hand-painted by artist Tracey Moloney. One mural features LA landmarks including City Hall, the Hollywood Sign, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Memorial Coliseum, the Santa Monica Pier, the Griffith Observatory, and USC and UCLA. The other features the OC, with Disneyland, a DC-3 airplane, orange groves, and a gas station. In a press release, Moloney says "In keeping with the historical nature of Citadel Outlets, we developed the murals to lead viewers back in time circa 1955." [Curbed Inbox]

FROGTOWN: Frogtown (aka Elysian Valley) is that narrow neighborhood roughly between the 5 and the LA River, south of Atwater Village. Tomorrow it's holding its annual art walk, where "You can stroll the newly refurbished Los Angeles river bike/pedestrian path while enjoying an array of art, music and local food." [Curbed Inbox]
