Light My Way, Stranger, for the MAK Center at the Schindler House

One of LA’s treasures is the seminal Schindler House by Austrian emigre Rudolf Schindler, now home to the MAK Center for Art and Architecture. But the upkeep of the 1922 concrete house is costly, as is the stewardship and programming of the MAK-owned  Mackey Apartments (1939) and the Fitzpatrick-Leland House (1936), also designed by R.M. Schindler.
So the MAK Center has dreamed up an enlightening fundraiser. This Friday evening they will host their first “Day of the Dead Auction”, entitled, Light My Way, Stranger, a sale of lights designed by a line-up of highly inventive LA architects and artists, including B+U – Herwig Baumgartner (light shown left), Florencia Pita (light shown right), and many other talents.
To be held at the Fitzpatrick-Leland House  in the Hollywood Hills, and MC’d by LAMA auctioneer Peter Loughrey, the evening will also “feature sounds by LA Fog, an experimental chamber music collective; and flavors by artist Sarah Beadle and Notch, an ensemble collective that produces ephemeral culinary and service interventions.” DnA will there and hope you will too.
