LASA Explores LA Art and Entertainment

On the 9th of January, LASA investigated the LA art and entertainment scene.  We started our day with LA Times reporter Carolina Miranda, who joined us at The Huntington to talk about her beat and her work.  Carolina, who has had a fascinating career mixing freelance and institutional journalism, talked about her work and her vantage on the LA art, design, and architectural scene.  We learned a great deal from her story, especially in the ways in which she navigates the amazing — and huge — LA art and cultural realm.  What we took from this is a great appreciation for Carolina’s energy and verve, as well as a renewed appreciation of the sheer, astonishing, diversity of the “LA art’s scene.”  Carolina left us with a challenge: go out there, look at things, be curious, check it out.  Words to live by.

Following that great morning, we went to Warner Bros. studio for our annual tour.  Great!  We trammed around the lot, saw sound stages and sets – saw a star or two (what was their name?) — and learned a lot about the dream factory that is Hollywood and the film business.

It was a great day — lots of fun and lots of knowledge gained about L.A.’s special and vaunted relationship with the worlds of art, culture, entertainment, and dreams.
