Celebrate Textile Legend Jack Lenor Larsen @ the de Young This SaturdayAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Jack Lenor Larsen is a legend in the textiles world. He’s worked with heavy hitters like Frank Lloyd Wright and has had his own designs featured in museums like the de Young. Also an author, collector and accomplished gardener, his famed LongHouse estate’s structures and landscapes, which are infused with his unique and worldly design sensibility, are lovingly chronicled in Molly Chappellet’s new book, Jack Lenor Larsen’s LongHouse (Chronicle Books).
Chappellet, writer Zahid Sardar and textile-design scholar Yoshiko Wada are coming to the de Young Museum’s Koret Auditorium this Saturday, November 20 to discuss the work, share stories, and cement Larsen’s status as a pioneer in his field.
We at California Home + Design are sponsoring the event. Celebrate Larsen’s work and life and grab tickets here ($25). If you’re already a member of the Garden Conservancy, Textile Arts Council or the Fine Arts Museums of SF organizations, tickets are $20.
