I know it’s not uncommon during the holidays to forget certain things, so I just wanted to remind you of a few tours and lectures that are coming up soon. I hope you’ll join me for one or more of the following.
This Friday, Jan. 8, I will present a lecture, “Wait, It Gets Weirder: Victorian Art & Culture.” This is my Second Friday of the Month lecture series sponsored through my nonprofit, The Institute of Good Design. Stay tuned for February’s lecture, focusing on artist couples in the history of art. And you know that these will not be your ordinary couples!
A new lecture series, titled “Palaces, Princes & Paramours,” is sponsored by Santa Monica College Community Education and will begin Jan. 23 for three consecutive Saturdays. Both lecture series are held at SMC.
My January tours of the stunning, John Lautner-designed Sheats-Goldstein House are full, but there is still space for the Private Tour of Queen Mary with Ship’s Captain as well as the Private Visit to Virginia Robinson Gardens in Beverly Hills, both scheduled in February.
I’ll be offering many more day tours around Southern California this year through my Meetup group, which I’m happy to say has grown to more than 900 members in just a few months. But I’m also organizing some great trips farther afield, including Fallingwater in Pennsylvania.
Please contact me for more information at EleanorSchrader@roadrunner.com or, better still, sign up for my Architecture, Interior Design & Decorative Arts Meetup Group – and you get automatic notification of all my tours.
