Culver City Ice Skating Rink to be Replaced by Harbor Freight Tools?

Posted by Scupine on March 20, 2015 at 6:30am 1 Comment

There is a potential new tenant for the property that today houses the decommissioned Culver City Ice Skating Rink: Harbor Freight Tools. According to correspondence sent by Permit Advisors, a "permit and entitlement consulting and expediting firm" [and forwarded to me by Walter Lamb of the Ballona Wetlands Land Trust: Thanks Walter!], Harbor Freight Tools will soon submit a development application with the Culver City Planning Division to renovate the property "while maintaining significant historical features of the building." Needless to say the "significant" features of the property don't extend to the, you know, ice.

The public has been invited to attend a community outreach meeting regarding this move on April 2, 2015, at the YMCA Culver Palms at 4500 Sepulveda Blvd. --…

Working with Clean Air: El Marino to Address Air Pollution in Southern California

Posted by Geoff Maleman on March 18, 2015 at 12:05pm 0 Comments

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently recognized Clean Air: El Marino and the Culver City Unified School District for its efforts in educating parents and the community about the impacts traffic pollution impacts students and ways in which the District can mitigate those impacts.


Nearly 800 students from preschool through the fifth grade attend El Marino Language School, which in some places, is within 50 feet of the San Diego (405) Freeway. Concerned about air quality and the health of the community, a group of parents came together in 2011 to research and implement mitigation strategies to ensure that every student, teacher, staff member, and parent volunteer at El Marino is breathing clean air. The group, Clean Air: El Marino, was founded by Dr. Rania Sabty-Daily and…

Los Angeles Magazine Spotlights Culver City's Bar & Garden

Posted by Scupine on March 13, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

"The folks who live in Culver City off Washington Boulevard are really fortunate to be able to count two-year-old wine/liquor/plant store Bar & Garden as their neighborhood liquor locker. Imagine walking down to your corner liquor store and being able to pick up a bottle of pechuga mezcal or a 1988 armagnac. That’s this place!"

That's the opening of a recent Los Angeles magazine profile of Bar & Garden, located at 6142 W. Washington Blvd, in the Art District of Culver City.

Here are some examples of what, according to the article, quoting co-owner Marissa Mandel, you can find at Bar & Garden: 

Sullivans Cove whiskies from Tasmania: “They’re crazy in demand. There’s a French oak and…

LA Times Calls New Works at Western Project Gallery in Culver City “Eye-Popping Extravaganzas”

Posted by Scupine on March 6, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

The Los Angeles Times’ David Pagel wrote a full review of the new Thomas Burke’s show at Western Project Gallery, saying “Thomas Burke's new paintings are eye-grabbing extravaganzas that pack more visual wallop into their brightly colored surfaces than has been seen since artists like Richard Anuszkiewicz, Bridget Riley, Julian Stanczak and Victor Vasarely invented Op Art in the 1960s.”

Continues the review:

...Burke treats Op as a springboard into something bigger and bolder and more muscular than it was the first time around. A great deal of oomph, and even more delicacy, are palpable in "Dutch Jailbreak," his rollicking exhibition of eight new paintings at Western Project.

Each is a diamond-shaped panel that the New York artist has taped and painted…


Culver City Helps Keep Ballona Creek Clean and Healthy

Posted by Scupine on March 5, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

When I rode my bike down Ballona Creek this weekend, I noticed some nice new signs in the uplands section of the Ballona Wetlands (known as Area C.) Very nice, since the signs brings attention to the fact that this area is already a thing to be valued, not just an empty lot to be filled. In the picture below, you can even see an egret (I do believe) that seems to agree....

This experience reminded me that I recently received an email from the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission letting me know that Culver City has been actively working to be good stewards of Ballona Creek – as well as the land and sea that it…
