LACMA at the Schindler Buck House Celebrating California Modern Design

Two nights ago some of LA’s most passionate and focused modernist enthusiasts got together at the Schindler Buck House to raise funds for the upcoming LACMA exhibition California Design, 1930-1965: “Living in a Modern Way” opening on October 1, 2011. Amongst the group was our very own Peter Loughrey, who also is on the board of LACMA’s Decorative Arts and Design Council. Peter gave his insight on the market and historical values of these pieces, and thoughts on why it is so important to have these pieces in LACMA’s permanent collection. Wendy Kaplan, Curator and Department Head of Decorative Arts and Design, and Museum Director Michael Govan, want this upcoming exhibit to be the best and most extensive resource of California Modern Design, and to have these influential pieces stay put in LA County to flourish as a destination collection for years to come.

If you are interested in contributing to making this exhibit part of LACMA’s permanent collection, please contact Peter Loughrey at peter@lamodern.com.
