Attend Free Art Event at Culver City's Samitaur Tower TONIGHT

Posted by Scupine on July 31, 2014 at 8:00am 0 Comments

The Culver City Historical Society, with Samitaur Constructs, has organized a public art project at the iconic Samitaur Tower in the Hayden Tract area of Culver City from Sunset (around 8 pm) until 9:30.

Student artists from Savannah College of Art and Design and University of New Mexico were given the "canvas" of the 10 screens on the Samitaur Tower and asked to explore the question of how an image makes an impact in a short amount of time in a non-traditional view (from a car, train). Images from the Culver CIty Historical Society's archives were used as a part of the project. Kurt Kratchman, who curated the project, will be at the Tower to answer questions.

Drive by, park and walk, or hop on the Expo tonight to view the project, which runs about 20 minutes and will loop…

Culver City Will Host CicLAvia Next July

Posted by Scupine on July 28, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

The City of Culver City received notification from Metro last week that the city has been awarded a $453,600 grant to host Culver City CicLAvia in July 2015. 

During these CicLAvia events, whole streets are shut down to car traffic, encouraging bicyclists and pedestrians to explore the city and participate in a space that is normally dominated by automobiles. Since it began in 2010, CicLAvia has quickly become Los Angeles County’s most popular public event, consistently attracting more than 100,000 participants. CicLAvia is free of charge and open to everyone. In 2013, Culver City’s Parcel B and Main Street served as a hub for CicLavia -- to wonderful effect

Red Bread in Culver City Closes

Posted by Scupine on July 30, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Red Bread Bakery (on Washington Blvd almost as far west as CostCo) has closed its doors -- after being in it's current location for about a year. That's terrible news for fans of the bakery's dark, dense, bitter, and wonderful rye bread. According to the Los Angeles Times, the owner plans to reopen later this year in a new, larger location. I hope they do, and I hope it's close-by.

Last October, in an article about the best bread and rolls in town, the …

Culver City Council Will Consider Designating Ice Rink as Cultural Resource at TONIGHT's Meeting

Posted by Scupine on July 23, 2014 at 11:00am 0 Comments

On April 22, 2014, the Culver City Cultural Affairs Commission considered an agenda item pertaining to the nomination of the Culver City Ice Arena for designation as a 'Culver City Cultural Resource.' After reviewing the material of record (which included a historic resource evaluation) and hearing public comment on the item, the commission passed a motion recommending to the City Council that the Culver City Ice Arena be designated a Cultural Resource at the “Significant” level.

The Culver City Council is scheduled to consider this item on Monday, July 28, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.

If you have an interest in saving this arena -- and I know many of you do -- this is your chance to be heard. City Council meetings are held in the Mike Balkman Council Chambers on the ground…

First-time player Jill S. Thompson was actually the first to name it. Congratulations Jill! She also shares her enthusiasm for the…

New Show by Hikari Shimoda Opens at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on July 18, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

A new show by Hikari Shimoda, "Fantastic Planet, Goodbye Man," will open this Saturday, July 19, at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City. The opening reception will run from 7 pm to 10 pm and -- as always -- is free and open to the public. 

Says the gallery about Shimoda's work:

"The bright, usually cheery, pastel color palette Hikari employs in her portraits tell the opposite story of the anxious, starry-eyed spirits she portrays. The paintings, embellished by sparkly stickers and Manga stylings, depict pale, horned children – demonic muses called upon to remind us of our mortality and the longevity of harm caused to humanity and our ecosystem."

The show will run until August 23.
