Join Design Onscreen for the Colorado premiere of Infinite Space: The Architecture of John Lautner on Friday, October 9 at the Denver Art Museum Museum’s Lewis Sharp Auditorium. The new documentary film explores the work of the visionary modernist architect, John Lautner (1911–1994) and proceeds will benefit Design Onscreen.
Lautner’s iconic structures have been featured in numerous publications and films (including Diamonds are Forever, Die Hard, Body Double and Pulp Fiction) and are often known by distinctive nicknames – the Chemosphere, Silvertop, the Elrod House and Marbrisa. A major exhibition celebrating Lautner’s work recently toured LA’s Hammer Museum and Glasgow’s Lighthouse Museum. In 1970, Lautner was made a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects for Excellence in Design. He also received the Gold Medal from the Los Angeles AIA chapter in 1993 for his lifetime achievement.
The 90-minute film will be followed by a question and answer session with award-winning Scottish Director Murray Grigor and Cinematographer Hamid Shams. $25 tickets include the Pre-Screening Reception and Premiere Screening of Infinite Space. $150 tickets include, in addition to the Reception and Screening, access to the Post-Premiere Afterparty on the Rooftop Terrace of the Daniel Liebskind-designed Museum Residences with food by Gourmet Fine Catering, cocktails and music, as well as exclusive tours of the Martin Museum Residence and Contemporary Art Collection.
The mid-season premiere of South Park was on last night. It featured recently deceased infomercial pitchman, Billy Mayes, promoting his newest product ‘Chipotlaway’ – said to be able to remove blood stains in your underwear caused by eating Chipotle. Nasty good.
In celebration of their 10-year anniversary, Denver’s Signature Advertising has launched a new website. Signature’s client base is rooted in President Karen Ruby’s expertise in the real estate and tourism industries, with a roster including the Telluride Tourism Board, Trammel Crow, Grand County Colorado Tourism Board, the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad, and Eldora. More recently they’ve expanded their reach to clients such as CSU, the Denver Urban Renewal Authority, and Olive Branch Ministries.
While the site is fairly utilitarian in its design, we definitely liked the work Signature has done for Telluride. Go check it out.
