In the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, A + D Museum, has just finished turning a warehouse into a museum, that will become their new home. They will open this saturday June 27, 2015, with a show titled “Shelter”. The exhibition, will celebrate the belief that a well-designed habitat creatively and functionally expresses its relationship to site, neighbor, and occupant.
The grand re-opening will also double for their 5th annual fund raising gala, where a silent auction of custom-designed “shelters” created by architecture and design luminaries, and installed exhibit-style in the new space will occur. All pieces have been donated and will be auctioned that evening, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Museum.
For a list of the participating artist, please see the link to the A + D Museum website here.
Throughout the evening, guests will dine on premier cuisine, cocktails, music, and much more while bidding on one-of-a-kind works and on-theme items to grace and invigorate their own shelters. The hosts will be Emcee and actor Boise Thomas.
Cartwheel Art and Cartwheel Art Tours are extremely excited to welcome A + D Museum to our neighborhood and look forward to their exhibitions, installations and programming. One of their most recent exhibition “Beyond Graffiti 2″, which was one of our favorites that included many of the graffiti artists that we follow and whose mural work we see with Cartwheel Art Tours. As for programming, an example would be the lecture series which recently offered Michael Maltzan for a discussion and presentation.
