LA-based curator Seth Carmichael is converting the 3,500 sq/ft "Supreme Penthouse" into a gallery space for an upcoming event sponsored by Los Angeles Magazine. The design showcase will feature many up & coming artists including: Erik James, Birgitte Moos, Mike Saijo & Rick Robinson. We've also been promised live-painting by Emmeric James Konrad, but we'll have to see it to believe it. The design showcase will be open to the public Friday, April 13th - Sunday, April 29th. Tickets required.
Art. Downtown. What's so damned newsworthy about that, you may think. Well, it seems this very same "Supreme Penthouse" is also rumored to have been purchased by none other than Posh and Becks. Or is it called "The Villa"? We simply cannot imagine Posh stepping over homeless and finding decent shopping at sample sales in the Fashion District, but who are we to say? And if there were ever a property to purchase in downtown's industrial district...it is this one. It boasts 1,198 sq/ft on the 7th floor, 1,485 sq/ft on the 8th floor, a mere 813 sq/ft on the 9th floor and three separate gardens that total another 2,458 sq/ft. Is it possible they'll live downtown? We doubt it, but we'll do our best to suss things out at the opening on Thursday night.
