Well, evicted is a bit strong. Their current Miracle Mile landlords generously gave them the space for free for more than a year but now the building's owners have leased the space so when this show closes, so does the space. So the A + D Museum needs to find a new home, once again.
And hopefully, they can return downtown to a place not far from the Bradbury Building where they started as I will be showing them a potential space shortly right in the heart of Gallery Row.
As for the show, Enlightened Development, it is a wide ranging look at many better quality developments throughout the greater Los Angeles area. And it will be up for over two months - so hit the above link and go see the show!
Addressing the audience were one of A + D's founders, architect Stephen Kanner, long time museum supporter/developer Dan Rosenfeld and Councilman Bernard Parks.
Among those in attendance I also chatted with about various civic projects we are either already working on - or hopefully will be working on together - were the essential Merrie Norris, critic Sam Hall Kaplan, urban planner Doug Suisan, Councilman Jose Huizar aide Amy Yeager, LA Conservancy stalwart John English and architects Bob Hale & Richard Corsini.
