A+D Presents COME IN! A Spatial Intervention. Kick-Off Event, July 14th
The Architecture + Design Museum of Los Angeles is pleased to present, COME IN! A Spatial Intervention, July 14 - August 30.
A+D has invited some of Los Angeles’ freshest talents to intervene in our galleries. Up and coming designers from various disciplines will create installations with A+D Museum as their canvas. The exhibition will continually transform as the works are in progress, organically morphing and expanding to offer museum visitors a new experience from day-to-day. On July 14, from 6-9PM, A+D will host an A+D Members Only evening to celebrate the intervention kick-off and give members a chance to meet and greet with the participants. On August 11, from 6-9PM, A+D will host THEY CAME! - a culmination party to celebrate the completed works. The interventions will remain on view through August 30.
In addition to the installations, a pop-up shop will offer limited edition works and items for sale from COME IN! participants.
