It’s the cusp of autumn in Los Angeles and that means one thing: Museum of California Design director Bill Stern is cooking a glorious plein air event that’s sure to add beauty and aesthetics to our existence.
Another year, another magnificent, architecturally significant California home where Bill will host his annual benefit and fundraiser. It’s the Dan House, designed by Franklin Israel in 1995, and not open to the public.
This year’s event honors designer, artist, craftsman, Peter Shire for his outstanding contributions to American design.
The Museum’s 2011 Henry Award will be presented to Shire by Frances Anderton, host of KCRW radio station’s DnA: Design and Architecture. Anderton is also the Los Angeles Editor for Dwell Magazine, and a contributor to the New York Times.
Another smart and funny Shire chair at right …
See you there!
Dress code: way cool ~
