This week at the Palm Springs Art Museum there are three events that I think you might be interested in. Two of the events are free and opem to the public and the third one, which I find most interesting is about $15. Not too shabby. Here are the events, please do enjoy…
January 24, 6:00pm in the Annenberg Theater
THIS SATURDAY: ADC LECTURE
The Rise and Fall of Celebrity Architecture Christopher Hawthorne, LA Times Architecture Critic
Hawthorne will discuss his thoughts on the phenomenon of “starchitecture” : the many sites world-wide designed by famous architects that have added stunning buildings to the urban fabric. With examples from Beijing (“Birds Nest stadium, seen at right) to Kentucky, he will present some emerging models vying to replace this much publicized phenomenon.
Christopher Hawthorne is the architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times, a position he has held since 2004. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter.
Ticket cost: $10 ADC members, $15 nonmembersTickets available at the Box Office now and on the day of the lecture.
