Pencil This In: Animation at Cinefamily, Machine Project-Boing Boing's Meetup and Art and Architecture Talks
The Architecture + Design Museum of Los Angeles welcomes Olson Kundig Architects’ Paul Schlachter for the program Craft, Kinetcs and Hot Rodding. The Seattle firm’s portfolio encompasses a wide range of national and international projects and Sclacter’s own work includes the Casey Family Programs Headquarters, a mixed-use high-rise hotel in downtown Seattle, private residences and a winery in Santa Ynez, California. Tickets available at the door: $10, students $5, free for A+D members. Doors open at 6 pm and the event begins at 6:30 with a light reception to follow.
The Cinefamily presents Jerry Beck's Animation Tuesdays tonight at 8 pm. On the big screen is a rare 35 mm showing of Allegro Non Troppo, the 1976 musical feature from Italian animator Bruno Bozzetto. It’s a feature-length parody of Fantasia, where Bozzetto “visualizes Ravel's “Bolero” as an Evolutionary Fantasy, one that supposes life began as germs from a discarded Coke bottle; Vivaldi's “Concerto in C” is the backdrop of an insect revenge senario; and, Sibelius' “Valse Triste” is used for a poignant tale of an abandoned house cat.” In keeping with the theme, Beck will open the evening with classic short animations by Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett and Friz Freleng that use classical music as their basis. $10 tickets.
Live Talks Los Angeles presents artist Bob Neuwirth in Conversation with David Felton tonight at 8 pm at Track 16 Gallery in Bergamot Station. The talk coincides with the closing of the retrospective, Overs & Unders: Paintings by Bob Neuwirth, 1964 - 2009. David Felton of the Los Angeles Times will interview Neuwirth on his 45-year career that encompasses pating, sculpture, filmmaking and music. Tickets: $20; $95 for a pre-event reception from 6:30 to 7:30 pm with Neuwirth and Felton. Net proceeds from this event support Southern California Public Radio, KPCC 89.3.
