Automotivated: Fashion & Auto Exhibit at Petersen

Published

on

More attention has been devoted to the design of apparel and automobiles than to any other objects. To celebrate this important link, The Petersen Automotive Museum and Phoenix Art Museum have collaborated on a new exhibit opening at the Petersen on Saturday, July 24, 2010.

Automotivated: Streamlined Fashion and Automobiles will reach from the early 1900s to the height of the Art Deco era to examine the automobile’s influence on fashion, fashion’s influence on the automobile, and the joint and unexpected influences between both.

Cars from between 1913 and 1938 will be displayed with complementary clothing styles of the era to illustrate how each discipline has been shaped by ongoing innovation, changing tastes, and evolving trends. Fashion showcased will include designs by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Sophie Gimbel, Nina Ricci, Hattie Carnegie, and Jeanne Lanvin.

Together, they will reveal how style-conscious individuals embraced cars as fashion accessories and how they ultimately came to consider their vehicles to be additional layers of clothing that were as essential to proclaiming their financial and social status as their hats, gowns, and jewels.

Automobiles on exhibition include:
1913 Mercer Raceabout
1923 Mercedes 28/95 Targa Florio
1926 Rolls-Royce Town Landaulet
1937 Jaguar SS-100
1934 LaSalle Series 350 Convertible Coupe
1937 Cord 812 Cabriolet
1937 Delage D8-120 Coupe Aerosport
1938 Delahaye 135MS Figoni et Falaschi Roadster

The automobile-inspired clothing drawn from Phoenix Art Museum’s fashion design collection will range from bulky but protective dusters, hats, gloves and other accoutrements created in the early days of the automobile to the stylish gowns, stoles, capes, dresses and ensembles that developed in the Art Deco period.

WeHo Reads: Architects Who Built Southern California Opens Mar 6

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Join author Antonio Gonzalez for a free event, as he tells the stories of the people behind some of Southern California’s most iconic buildings.

In the early 1900s, the population of Southern California exploded, and the cities grew at such a rapid pace that builders could hardly keep up.

Among those who settled in the area were ten architects looking to make their marks on the world. Claud Beelman, a man who never received a college degree, would go on to design the Elks Lodge in Los Angeles.

Albert C. Martin, architect of Grauman’s Million Dollar Theater, founded a company that is still going strong more than one hundred years later, and Julia Morgan, the first woman architect licensed in California, was hired by William Randolph Hearst to design the Examiner Building.

Antonio Gonzalez has a BA in journalism from the University of Iowa and an MLIS from San Jose State University. He is a member of the Odd Fellows fraternity, works in an architecture and fine arts library and has a blog where he post items related to architecture and his other interests (misterdangerous.wordpress.com).

In 2015, arts and historic preservation staff began a project of documenting all of the City’s designated historic properties.

This free exhibition shows a selection of photographs from the over 80 properties that were documented by West Hollywood photographer Tony Coelho, representing a wide array of architectural styles and associations with well-known architects and builders. These images celebrate West Hollywood – recognizing our past, present, and future.

When and Where:
Friday, March 6, 7:00 pm
Community Meeting Room at the West Hollywood Library
625 N. San Vicente Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069

  • 7-8 pm: Reading and Architecture Presentation by Antonio Gonzalez
