Exhibit Dates announced

Postby bammer » Wed Sep 20, 2006 7:55 am

The exhibition, tentatively titled "Mid-20th Century Architecture in Sunland-Tujunga," will be at the Bolton Hall Museum in Tujunga from March 10- August 28, 2007. The opening reception is March 10th. Needless to say we need help with this. We want to make this event to as interactive as possible. Any ideas? We have a blog set up at http://foothillmoderns.blogspot.com/ where we'll post updates, etc.

Isnt there a Lautner house in Sunland? A Circular design with steel truss roofs? Is it still around?

Most definitely, we have some photos and articles about it. From what we hear there's been some renovation done, hopefully not too much. It's on our list of featured houses.

Exhibit

Postby Josquin » Wed Feb 21, 2007 5:16 pm

"What is Mid-Century Modern? Who built these avant-garde homes? Who were the people daring enough to live in them? Foothill Moderns: Innovative Architecture in Mid-Century Sunland/Tujunga will explore world-class Atomic Age architects who built unique structures in Sunland/Tujunga. Richard Neutra, Pierre Koenig, John Lautner and Edward Weston are some of the well-known names who introduced radical new ideas in floor plan, materials and energy-efficiency through their work for local clients. Their experimental designs influenced countless imitators, among them, Victor Sease, infamous local developer of Tujunga’s Manzanita Slope Development and Descanso Tract."

Actually, the architects featured are Neutra, Koenig, Lautner and Eugene Weston. Featured are some photos from the Shulman collection now at the Getty Center.

We've posted this separately under events, but wanted to make sure that everyone is aware of the Sunland-Tujunga Home Tour. Devil's house is featured, it's a great chance to check out the amazing things she's been doing, inside and outside and in-between. This year's tour is Sunday, May 6, from 10:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.; tickets are available through the Bolton Hall Museum, 10110 Commerce Avenue, Tujunga, California 91042
(818) 352-3420, in advance and on the morning of the tour.

We'll also be updating our exhibit at Bolton Hall. We've received so much info since we put it up, we could do a whole new exhibit!

Does the tour start at Bolton Hall? I'll be bringing a carload of friends who have never been to Tujunga before.

S-T Historic Home Tour

Postby devildogranch » Sun Apr 29, 2007 6:32 am

Yikes... just coming up for air - I cannot believe I agreed to have my home on the tour - LOL!

Looking forward to meeting you, r'n'r_beautyqueen! Hope to meet a lot of others from this board, as well. Bammer, josquin, Ani and I will be docents at my home, so, don't be shy... please introduce yourselves if you come by!

By the way, they've just done some major brush clearance (and tree butchering) at the Scott House (one of Pierre Koenig's first residential commissions), so you can see it really well right now from 2 sides. It's at the end of my block. A bonus for those on the tour!

Yes, Devil Dog I meant to introduce myself at the lecture, but I was caught up in conversation until the lime sherbet punch had run dry.
