Welcome all,

The next Meetup will be at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena. The date, Saturday, June 30th, features a special exhibition of Ellsworth Kelly and the Museum's Annual Garden Party from 5:00pm - 7:00pm.

UPDATE June 26th: Meet in the theater between 1:00pm and 1:30pm for the 1:30pm showing of the documentary (don't miss it!!) if you don't make it in, meet inside the theater at 2:00pm where I will be talking. If we get kicked out, we meet outside the theater at 2:00pm.

Also Note: The reason the Meetup is so long is, some people may not want to stay for the Annual Garden Party (5pm- 7pm) while other may want to show up late and stay late. It's very flexible and you can join us when you want!

Additionally, we'll watch the documentary about Norton Simon and the making of his museum then tour the Renaissance, Baroque, 18th & 19 century, and Modern art collections. For lunch we'll grab a coffee, wine or beer in the gardens and for those who want to stay, the Museum is also having their annual Garden Party. See links below.

I will update this at the end of May with further details.
