The 25th Annual edition of the Los Angeles Modernism Show and
Sale will open on May 4 with a celebrity-studded preview party to benefit new
sponsor P.S. ARTS. In celebration of their 20th anniversary, P.S. ARTS, which for
the past several years was associated with the Los Angeles Antiques Show,
is going “modern”.
The host committee for the preview party includes P.S. ARTS supporters Maria
and Bill Bell, Rachel Bilson, Kimberly and Albert Brooks, Courteney Cox, and Lisa
Kudrow, among many other well-known film industry professionals and philantho-
pists. P.S. ARTS provides arts education for thousands of Los Angeles public school
students in lower-income neighborhoods. Preview party sponsors include David
Yurman, Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley, and Patron.
Featuring fifty national and international exhibitors presenting decorative and fine
arts from all design movements of the 20th century, the Los Angeles Modernism
Show and Sale will offer a broad range of materials for collectors and home
designers including furniture, lighting, sculpture, paintings, jewelry, silver, glass,
ceramics, photography, textiles, prints, rugs, posters, vintage clothing and accessories.
The entrance tent will feature a special exhibition in tribute to iconic
mid-century designers Ray and Charles Eames created by their daughter Lucia
Eames, grand-daugther Llisa Demetrios, and Carissa Duncan, Director of Design at
Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley, which is providing corporate sponsorship for the display.
The show opens with the preview party from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 4,
benefiting P.S. ARTS. Preview tickets range from $150 to $500 depending on
