Opening Gala at LACMA Celebrating Frank Gehry
We attended the spectacular gala opening for Frank Gehry at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on September 9th. The exhibition is outstanding, smart, provocative and incredibly comprehensive. Kudos to Mr. Gehry for a lifetime of spectacular international projects. This show is a gem in every respect despite the 100 degree humid weather (sympathies to all the men in jackets), the art and architecture world turned out in full force for the evening.
This museum is featuring the first comprehensive survey to date of Mr. Gehry’s product designs, from the corrugated cardboard and ribbon chairs, to a polished tea kettle by Alessi, at the new JFChen@1135 in the Highland Arts District. This will be the museum’s annual gala, so save the date for Sunday, October 25th, to see Mr. Gehry honored with the Henry Award for remarkable achievements in product design.
