Barton Myers: Works of Architecture and Urbanism
September 12–December 12, 2014
With works as varied as a Vidal Sassoon Salon from 1968, the U.S. Expo Pavilion in Seville, Spain in 1992, and his steel houses, this exhibit will present an overview of almost fifty years of architecture. Barton Myers first attracted attention in the late 1960s for his civic buildings and urban projects in Canada. He returned to the United States in 1984 to open a Los Angeles office and became known for his performing arts centers, campus buildings, and steel houses among many projects. 

The Barton Myers papers were donated to the Architecture and Design Collection of the AD&A Museum, UC Santa Barbara in 2000.  The archive covers Myers’s work from 1968 through 2002 and includes sketches and computer drawings, watercolors, images by well-known photographers, detailed study models and models of blocks-long sections of cities, as well as research notes, correspondence, lectures, and writings.

Poster Show to Celebrate LA's New Bicycle-Friendly Status

ARTCRANK, which event organizers describe as a “poster party for bike people,” is coming to Los Angeles with an opening at Orange 20 Bikes on December 8, 2012. 

Savvy environmental designers and civic entrepreneurs know that Los Angeles has recently jumped onto the map as a bicycle-friendly city, with new bicycle infrastructure projects around Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Santa Monica employing urban design firms all over the region. Founded in Minneapolis in 2007, ARTCRANK has already exhibited in Portland, San Francisco, Austin, New York, Denver, and London, and is coming to Los Angeles looking to celebrate the city’s budding romance with the bicycle: “Los Angeles has always been a beacon for creative people…But even two years ago, nobody would've thought of it as a big bike town,” said ARTCRANK founder Charles Youel in a press release announcing the event. “We can't wait to see how that comes through in the posters that our L.A. artists are creating for the show.” 

The show will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters by local artists, with limited edition posters available for sale with proceeds benefitting L.A. Streetsblog. For more about the ARTCRANK passion for art and bikes, there’s a video available here that makes their case.
