We went to the opening reception for our friend Charlie Kaplan's sculpture exhibit Saturday night. Little white gloves were handed out so everyone could touch the pieces, which added a whole other dimension of appreciation. We'd seen Charlie's sculptures before of course but never all in the same space, and all that art and talent and vision in one room was breathtaking. The exhibit is on until March 9th so if you have a chance go see it at the PYO Gallery downtown Los Angeles at 1100 South Hope Street.
The week before we saw the restoration of the famous David Siqueiros mural called "La America Tropical" and went to the Interpretive Center below designed by our friend Tom Hartman and his company IQ Magic. Tom's dedication to this project and his vision for it was extraordinary. One hour wasn't enough to absorb all the history and art so we're going back for a longer visit. Check it out - on Olvera Street downtown in the Sepulveda house.
