ARTNIGHT PASADENA
Friday, March 8 from 6-10pm

Join us at the Gamble House for a rare opportunity to see the house by night! Enjoy the 1908 electrical light fixtures and the mysterious electronic music of the Theremin.

Ed Sussman – artist, technician, and theremin musician – will present the history of this remarkable instrument that was invented over 100 years ago.

This unique instrument is played without touching it. See how it works and then try it yourself. Ed will invite select guests who are interested to see if they can play to have fun trying to do what seems impossible.

Robert Winter, ‘the Godfather of LA Architecture,’ has died

One of the Gamble House's oldest and dearest friends passed away at age 94 on Saturday. We can't overstate all that Bob Winter has done to further scholarship on the Arts & Crafts movement over many decades, and to create a community of people around it, extending to colleagues, students, and enthusiasts. We are so grateful for the life he lived and everything that it brought to us.

Winter "lived and breathed the built world of Los Angeles."
