Venice Architecture Madness, Japanese Garden Sale Delayed

New, 2 comments

VENICE: This weekend's the thirty-fourth annual Venice Art Walk & Auctions, and for the first year, the art auction (on Sunday) will be held at Google's Frank Gehry-designed binoculars building. Tomorrow, there'll be an architecture tour focusing on the section east of Lincoln and including the Huguette Caland Residence and Studio, which has just one interior door. On Sunday, the arch tours continue in the area between Pacific and Abbot Kinney. There's all kinds of other stuff going on too, and it all benefits the Venice Family Clinic. All the info is here.

BEL AIR: A judge has turned down the chance to stop UCLA from selling its Hannah Carter Japanese Garden in Bel Air, blocking a request for a temporary restraining order against the sale (the request was part of a lawsuit to stop the sale altogether). However, UCLA is going to extend the bidding period for the property, from May 22 until August 15. The garden (and its adjacent house) were gifts from former UC Regent Edward Carter; the school is trying to sell both properties "to fund the professorships and other academic endowments specified by Regent Carter."
