Cultural Field Trip to Culver City

02Jun09

By Emily Waldorf

On May 7th, I organized my latest cultural field trip to Culver City called “Women in Art,” with a focus on female-run art ventures.  We started the field trip at uber talented floral designer Holly Vesecky’s fascinating studio, followed by a walkthrough with Mary Leigh Cherry of Cherry + Martin‘s inaugural group exhibition in their new space.  

Next was a rountable discussion with Lauri Firstenburg at LA><ART, where artist Chris Oliveira was installing his current show,”A Garden for Losing One’s Head,” and took a moment to talk about his work. Our last stop was a walkthrough of Timothy Hull’s show, “Justified and Ancient: What Time is Love?” with Heather Taylor, co-owner of Taylor de Cordoba.  We concluded the cultural field trip with a delicious bento box lunch and art-filled conversation at nearby Asian cafe, Beacon.  

“Women in Art” was the third in a series of cultural field trips with the goal of engaging participants in the rich cultural landscape of Los Angeles while simultaneously raising money and awareness for local arts nonprofits.  This particular event benefited arts nonprofit Piece by Piece.  Other field trips have included visits to the Frederick R. Weisman Museum in Bel Air and L.A. Louver Gallery in Venice.

    You write so honestly about this. Thanks for shrniag!

    What perils exist that can create a loss, and does the insurance cover them? A peril is something that causes loss, such as earthquake in a homeowner’s QuotesChimp or theft in an automobile policy. Perils differ from place to place and from coverage to coverage. This being so, you probably don’t want to buy coverage for something that presents you with little or no risk of loss.

  4. There are also several mundane electronic items that should be added to a college
    dorm shopping list to make a dorm feel more like home.
    The most incredibly efficient solutions and options encompass
    a dynamic piece referred to as DHA. A tanning solution provides the right kind of solution which is always extremely
    helpful in showing the best kind of effect
    on your face.

  5. With the HCG Drops, the day of finally fitting into a
    pair of skinny jeans will not be a dream after all.
    The reason is that HCG is approved for clinical use. Kevin Trudeau was the person who popularized the use of HCG for dieting when he wrote and published a
    book on the subject.
