lacma & rose tarlow

this jock peters table, from the fabled bullock's wilshire department store will be purchased with proceeds from the evening
m21 loves a swanky cocktail party, and he loves it even more when the party is a fundraiser for a good cause, so we wanted to bring to your attention that the decorative arts and design council of the los angeles county museum of art is honoring los angeles design legend, rose tarlow, with its third annual design leadership award, and as part of the celebration,  rose tarlow and the DADC are having a cocktail party to raise funds for the purchase of a historic jock peters' designed table (above), originally part of the interiors of the art deco landmark bullocks wilshire department store here in los angeles. once purchased, the table will be part of lacma's upcoming exhibition california design 1930-1965: “living in a modern way”.

the beautiful interior of the rose tarlow showroom
in an era of budget cutbacks, art museums like lacma are struggling to keep the doors open and provide quality exhibitions to the public, so decorative arts purchases are often overlooked in the scheme of things.  who cares about some musty old table, anyhoo? well, we do, the DADC does, and so does rose tarlow, so purchasing a ticket goes to a great cause!

the exterior of the showroom. seriously- can this be my house? please?
the cocktail event will be at the truly stunning rose tarlow showroom on december 9th at 6pm, and the jock peters table will be on display as well.  tickets are still available, and are $175 ($150 is tax deductible). to purchase a ticket, or make a donation, please contact the DADC 323 857 6528 or email them at this address: decartscouncil@lacma.org.

see ya there!
