Usually we focus on all things east but we'd be failing our mission as design citizens if we didn't make a stop at the incredible extravaganza of modern design, California Design, 1935-1960: Living in a Modern Way, currently on view at LACMA. So consider this a special exception to see some design *west* of LaBrea as we tour this groundbreaking exhibition, hear from the show's curator, and celebrate the holidays with drinks and cheer at Stark Bar, recently named one of the top restaurants in the country by Esquire!
Tuesday, December 13
6:00pm: Meet at Resnick Pavilion, tour California Design on your own
6:30pm: Talk by curator Bobbye Tigerman at Resnick Pavilion entrance
7:00pm: Tour California Design on your own
8:00pm -11:00pm: Meet at Stark Bar for the de LaB Holiday Party
5905 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036
LACMA is free to LA County residents after 5pm (did you know that?) so just show your ID at the box office and you'll receive a free ticket.
Since the holidays are a time for giving, we're also hoping you might take this festive opportunity to make a small donation to de LaB. In 2011 we produced 20 events, half of which were completely free to attendees. In the next year we'll continue to bring you two events per month, plus secure our nonprofit status and debut a brand new website designed by Derrick Schultz. And we even have a few surprises up our sleeves. If you'd like to help support a successful 2012, there's an opportunity when you RSVP to add a donation. Any amount will help us to continue bringing you the best design programming east (or west!) of LaBrea. Thank you and have a wonderful holiday!
This is the second event in our Eames Themes, celebrating the contributions and legacies of Southern California's greatest designers in honor of Pacific Standard Time. Stay tuned to hear about the next events coming up in January!
