The sign outside of the Beverly Hills Anthropologie announced “Meet beloved blogger, Grace Bonney” to many onlookers who cooed and ahh’d that the queen of design blogging–and author!–was within eyeshot. The location was hosting an RSVP only craft party, book signing, and overall celebration of all things Grace and Design Sponge, promoting her new book Design Sponge At Home.
There are several upcoming events surrounding Pacific Standard Time. We’ve posted a few of the shows related to the subject but, really, what is PST? The logo for the event is being tacked on everywhere, with people whispering about it…but what the heck is it! Let us break it down for you.
A Product Of Design presented by Scion recently opened and is quite a great show. The show is curated by amazing illustrators Gluekit (Kathleen and Christopher Sleboda), who made a related, somewhat promotional video for the show that was posted on The Fox Is Black some time ago. The exhibit seems to work like a retail showroom, slightly akin to an Opening Ceremony or, perhaps, a Barney’s. This, of course, is the point: focusing on the product as art, a product of design. Now you get the title?
For most of September, Space 15 Twenty’s pop-up space has been inhabited with a nice little art show dedicated to cycling, art, and the intermixing of the two: Push/Pull: Art and Cycling. The show is relatively small and is equal parts art space, retail space, and biking space. The show definitely is a destination for all bike enthusiasts, as you could see bikes and bikes and more bikes tied up to different posts, with persons coming in and out of the space to scope out what was going on.
Cirque du Soleil’s Iris opened this past weekend after what seemed like forever and, in keeping with their big circus show in the Kodak, they brought their high production to Hollywood Blvd for a few days. The show shut down between Orange and Highland on Hollywood from last Thursday evening to yesterday night. As if things weren’t hectic enough in that area, a mega French block party was added to the mix.
