UPCOMING EVENTS

ART DAY

Like I said in my last post, I have a long list of art exhibits to see out here in LA. I got to cross two off this weekend.

First stop was Jacob Hashimoto‘s Gas Giant at MOCA Pacific Design Center. What an ethereal experience that had us curious about the amount of time and detail each piece took. There were over 1000 handmade kites of different patterns and sizes intricately hanging from what seemed like the sky. This particular MOCA is a lot smaller than the others, so it was really cool standing amidst it all. In his published interview that’s for the taking by the front door, Hashimoto said, “This beautiful thing is not going to be here forever, you have to go see it for yourself.” Agreed.

Next stop was the Wilshire May Company Building for the Diane Von Furstenberg Journey of a Dress exhibit, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the designer’s iconic wrap dress that has withstood the test of time. The dress was created for comfort and practicality; to epitomize women’s liberation with a garment so easy to put on and so easy to take off. The exhibit features the famous who have relied on the wrap, the designer who has proven that after 40 years she is still relevant, and a series of mannequins in a range of fabrics, colors, and prints.

If you get a chance to see any of these, do it. Especially when it’s a 75 degree day and they’re free!
