Parties: We like them! Invite us to yours!

Rethink/LA, a collaboration of volunteers in the Los Angeles architecture, planning, motion graphics, and design community, threw a party last night to celebrate the opening of the Rethink/LA: Perspectives on a Future City exhibit (running through September 4 at the A+D Museum on Wilshire Blvd.). Rethink/LA estimated that over 300 people joined the celebration over the course of the evening (and it got packed in there), so people are certainly excited to imagine and build a better future for Los Angeles (and to hit an open bar). The exhibit invites visitors to step into a multimedia and interactive representation of LA's past, present, and future, with exhibit components meant to provoke creative ideas about the future of Los Angeles.
The exhibit most prominently features 20 photographs of present day Los Angeles, juxtaposed with 20 collages of a future LA. We'll be showing those to you this afternoon, but for now let's get to the party report.
In the house: Architects, landscape architects, designers, journalists, City Council staff, public relations reps, artists, and children (our future)
Menu: Krazy BBQ truck, beer, fancy sodas, and of course some kind of pomegranate-flavored booze
Dress code: Gainfully employed hipster, straight-from-the-office
Soundtrack: Esoteric dance beats via vinyl and a PA system set to blast by DJ Lillyanne and Hawkeye
Gift bag contents: Free booze!
More to come: Moving Beyond Cars Party crashes the exhibit August 11 from 7-10 pm (it's a car-free party, so don't even think about driving)
