Echo in the Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA’s Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. It was a moment (1965 to 1967) when bands came to LA to emulate The Beatles; and Laurel Canyon emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on American popular music.

 

Art & Architecture On Screen: Klimt & Schiele - Eros & Psyche

July 18, at 7:00pm

Taking place across five stunning exhibitions with never-before-experienced access, Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche recounts an extraordinary moment in art history - the Vienna Secession, a magical art movement formed in the late 1890s that marked a new era outside the confines of academic tradition.  This cinematic production provides an in-depth examination of images of extraordinary visual power: from the eroticism of Klimt's mosaic-like works, to the anguished and raw work of the young Schiele in his magnetic nudes and contorted figures against the backdrop of nocturnal Vienna, full of masked balls and dreams imbued with sexuality.
