The Agenda: Pizza On The Lawn, Shelter, And Tina Frey’s Fall Collection


Summer Fun

Pizza On The Lawn

Head over to the legendary Redwood Cellar tasting room at Charles Krug Winery, which recently won a prestigious award for architecture and landscape design. While you’re there, take note of the National Historic Landmark’s reclaimed, clear heart redwood (from the family’s original wine tanks), plus stone and open-beam construction. Sidle up to the large bar for some sipping—Food & Wine named it a top 10 tasting experience in California. Then, skip across the lawn for Cucina di Rosa’s Italian wood-fired pizza.

When: 11am-4pm, Saturdays and Sundays 

Where: Charles Krug Winery, 2800 Main Street, St. Helena



Tina Frey’s Fall Collection

This season, Tina Frey’s collection gets a makeover, using new designs and new materials including metal, paper, and textiles. Polished brass glams up trademark silhouettes and resin pieces get a new cement-colored hue. Plus, keep your eyes out for updated kitchen linens, stationery, and a first-ever bath collection.  

When: Ongoing

Where: Tina Frey Shop, Studio and Showroom, 1278 Minnesota Street, San Francisco

“Shelter: Rethinking How We Live in Los Angeles”

In this group show—the inaugural exhibit in A+D’s new downtown space—architects and designers think up creative ways to address LA’s housing demands. Through speculative proposals for two sites along the Wilshire Corridor and Los Angeles River, they tackle issues of increased density, ballooning costs, diversity, and environmental challenges. Large-scale models, drawings, photos, and video will be on view in addition to showcasing recently constructed or work-in-progress solutions by a variety of firms. 

When: Thursday, 8/20–Friday, 11/6

Where: A+D Museum, 900 East Fourth Street, Los Angeles



Moholy-Nagy Series

To coincide with the museum’s current exhibit, SBMA is hosting a free film series addressing Moholy-Nagy’s involvement with the big screen, as filmmaker and production designer. The artist was part of an avant-garde art and documentary filmmaking movement that captured the zeitgeist of the times, and this series, programmed by Peter Bloom (Professor of Film and Media Studies) and Colin Gardner (Professor of Art) at UC Santa Barbara, highlights the function of urban space and experimental design.

When: 5:30pm, Thursday, 8/20

Where: Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Mary Craig Auditorium, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara

Collectors and auction enthusiasts, take note. Bonhams’ latest sale is around the corner. Place your bids (real or imaginary) for such gems as Edgar Payne’s panoramic landscape paintings, a Renaissance revival gilt metal mahogany chest, and a coveted Louis XV-style gilt bronze commode, plus a mod entertainment cabinet and speaker, designed by George Nelson for Knoll & Associates. 

When: 9am, Monday, 8/17

Where: Bonham’s, 7601 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles
