Historic Farmer’s Market, Los Angeles, 1960s

This week on the blog we saw one of the largest flowers in the world bloom at the Huntington Library & Gardens in Pasadena – Titan Arum a.k.a “The Corpse Flower.” We visited Le Louvre in Paris and took a look at the new installation in the Department of Decorative Art from Louis XIV to Louis XVI where we saw a beautiful gold coffee grinder. The British prog rock band Yes played at the Greek Theater in L.A. We marveled at the architecture of The Church of Notre-Dame du Raincy. We attended a screening of the must-see documentary for every Angelino – Los Angeles Plays Itself. We announced Michaela Eichwald’s exhibition of paintings and sculpture at Palais de Tokyo in ParisJana Euler at Kunsthalle Zürich, and Matias Faldbakken at Standard (Oslo). And, one of our favorite bookshops in Los Angeles – Family – reopened this past week with the launch of Sean Wilsey’s new book ‘More Curious.’




CTTE-800On Sunday night, the British prog rock band Yes, played albums Close to the Edge and Fragile in their entirety at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. For a fan who wasn’t around during Yes’s heyday in the early 1970s this was the next best thing. 67 year old guitarist Steve Howe held two guitars in his arms, and played a third steel guitar on a stand in front of him – Amazing! Geoff Downes, who was once entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for performing with the most keyboards on stage, was equally amazing to watch.
