A great non-profit organization right here in Los Angeles is P.S. ARTS. They are committed to bringing daily art education to children in under-served, under-funded schools. One big fundraising event is the L.A. Modernism Opening Night event in Culver City. This year it was in April and our founder Maryl Georgi was on the event committee. Here are a few pictures snapped by Maryl from that night.
The night was a celebrity studded party to celebrate L.A.’s most prominent artists, designers, architects, and other influential professionals from the creative community. This chic event kicks off a weekend-long exhibition that features over 40 exhibitors of modern art (namely 20th century furniture, decorative, and fine arts) from across the United States and Europe.
The event was full of amazing people. Maryl met up with Ron and Robin Radziner at the event. Ron worked with Maryl as architect on a home in Pacific Palisades. Robin is an artist herself and designs amazing jewelry.
Below are some shots of various booths that Maryl enjoyed. The event is full of design inspiration for interior projects for any home. Maryl uses many of these ideas in her home “Wildtree”.
Events like these tend to lead to new designs at all of our Anymatic brands. The colorful art will inspire designs for mats and board shorts.
The girl at the typewriter actually wrote poems on demand. She typed one for Maryl all about her home “Wildtree.”
Maryl also met up with Karen Putman of P2 Design. She was the architect for the renovation at Wildtree as well as the Anymatic office.
Karen is also a contributor to the design committee for LA Modernism. Here is her P.S. Arts message.
In addition to the event itself, a silent auction was also held to benefit P.S. Arts.
All in all it was a wonderful night spent with friends and getting inspired by amazing artists. We hope Maryl joins in with this great even next year to bring back some more amazing inspiration for our Anymatic designs. Even if you do not live in Los Angeles, we hope that you will get involved to encourage arts in your community. Art programs in schools help to level the educational playing field by teaching creative and cognitive skills to students struggling to overcome economic, ability, or literacy barriers. These skill will better equip them to be competitive and successful people. Get involved in your community and make sure all schools and children have access to the arts.
