California Design 1930-1965 @ LACMA

As part of the Getty funded intiative Pacific Standard Time, LACMA will be presenting their exhibition: California Design, 1930–1965: “Living in a Modern Way”. According to LACMA, “This exhibition is the first major study of California midcentury modern design. With more than 300 objects—furniture, ceramics, metalwork, fashion and textiles, and industrial and graphic design—the exhibition examines the state’s role in shaping the material culture of the entire country.” Judging from the photos, there will also be a lot of see from the case study homes of that time, therefore including (I assume) photographic works by my main man Julius Shulman.

So, yesterday I completely lit up when I received an invitation to the opening reception! Yaaaaay for member perks! I can take one guest, so I you know I had to ask BLam, who is very much into home design at the moment. Super duper excited.

Pacific Standard Time will run for 6 months, beginning October 2011, so try to check out some of the exhibits around town, if you can!
