Cycle for Ceramics

leave a comment »

Rob Forbes Selects opens on Saturday, July 16. That’s one of the days the 405 will be closed between the 101 and the 10. It’s true. So, do we pack it in and miss the opening? No – there’s a beautifully appropriate solution: ride a bike to the opening. What could be more perfect than arriving on a bike to see the ceramics show chosen by Rob Forbes, the founder of PUBLIC bikes, and a big advocate for sustainable design in living. So, hop on your bike and pedal on over to Frank Lloyd Gallery to the opening of “Rob Forbes Selects.”

Just in case you didn’t hear, let’s make it clear: the 405 will be closed between the 101 and 10 freeways, starting July 15. Some are calling it “Carmaggedon,” but take a look at this photo of painter Ed Moses. Does Ed look worried about a total car impaction?

Need more motivation? The first 100 people will get free tacos and beer! Still traveling by car? Then take a look at the detour maps provided by L.A. Metro, and start a little early. And remember (if you’re old enough), how easy it was to drive across town during the LA Olympics of ’84 when everyone else was cowering at home avoiding the traffic.

The opening of the ceramics show will be from 5 to 7 PM, Saturday, July 16.
