House Industries in LA

Andy Cruz, one of sixteen members of the eclectic and talented design team House Industries, will be making an appearance at CalArts Monday evening. I learned about House Industries through my daughters grandparents John and Marilyn Neuhart. During the summer Eve and I had gone down to El Segundo for a visit. Marilyn pulled out some dolls that House Industries was making based on her handmade dolls from the 60's.

Now, we all have the opportunity to hear Andy speak about his creative, out-of-the-box company and see his latest projects. Here are the specs:

Marilyn and John Neuhart are quite an eclectic talented pair. I first met them while dating my first husband Ben Neuhart. Immediately I fell in love with their strong aesthetic and attention to design details in every aspect of their lives. I'll do another contribution about them soon...with lots of photos.

See you at the lecture.
