The Los Angeles Conservancy's Modern Committee is raising money this week with a Wednesday screening of "Visual Acoustics, the Modernism of Julius Shulman" at the Egyptian Theatre and a Saturday bus trip to the late photographer's home in the Hollywood Hills. "Enjoy cocktails and heavy hors d'œuvres at sunset in the steel-and-glass house designed by Raphael Soriano in 1950, and in the extensive gardens by visionary mid-century landscape designer Garrett Eckbo," says the invitation. The tour will also visit the breathtaking Stahl House, the Conservancy says. It's $125 for the two events.
