This Thursday, December 6, the Orange County Museum of Art, BetterShelter, and the Orange County AIA are hosting "Modern Architecture Now, a panel discussion from a historical and current perspective." This is a great opportunity to hear an interesting discussion on mid-century architecture in Southern California, as well as a chance to see (again if you haven't already seen it) the "Birth of Cool" exhibition before it closes (January 6th, 2008).
The event is $10 for non-members, (free for museum members, $5 for AIA members). The OCMA is located in Newport Beach near Fashion Island. Click here for more info.
