Lenore Tawney’s NY apartment

Just wanted to share this inspiring space that belonged to my favorite fiber artist, Lenore Tawney. Image existing and creating in this space…

Drop City


A striking still from a new documentary about “Drop City“, a temporary artist’s community in Colorado during the late 1960’s.  It doesn’t look like there is a Los Angeles screening planned, but I hope to see this at some point!

Not surprisingly, this awesome macramé playground doesn’t exist anymore.  What a shame.

LACMA: Pacific Standard Time Contributions

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I started a new job (hooray!) at the end of September and have had very little spare time or energy. I will still be posting, but the posts will be a little spread out. Please keep me in your RSS reader!

So this past weekend my lovely mother came to visit from Northern California. We visited LACMA because I wanted to show her LACMA first of all, but also wanted to see their contribution to Pacific Standard Time. My favorites were California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way and the installation of Five Card Stud by Ed Kleinholtz which was quite moving and immersive. This is a post about the former, but the latter is darkly fantastic and definitely worth visiting.

I took a janky phone photo of the Eames living room, as recreated by LACMA to compare to the real thing. I can tell you that even though it wasn’t identical, it filled me with joy and made me want to hop into the installation and have a cup of coffee a friend (or with the Eames’s).
