The Agenda: Heath’s Seasonal Collection, Palm Spring’s Arrive, and Pace Art + Technology



Heath Ceramics Summer Seasonal  

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Heath Ceramics has released its limited-edition summer seasonal collection—a combination of smart neutrals and bold color, this time in the hue of a super-glossy cayenne. Whether you’re a loyal fan who collects a bud vase from every season or are simply looking for the perfect gift, you’d be smart to act fast. The summer line is only available until October 1 and will likely sell out well beforehand. In other news, Heath has teamed up with eco-friendly brand Etta + Billie on a limited-edition run of soaps—in sweet-smelling aromas of grapefruit, Dalmatian sage, and Pacific Ocean sea salt—that will be sold in both the Mission and West Hollywood stores while supplies last. 

When: Fri. 4/1–Sat. 10/1 for Heath summer seasonal; Fri. 4/1 until sold-out for Etta + Billie collaboration 

Where: Summer seasonal available in stores and online; Etta + Bille sold at 2900 18th St., San Francisco and 7525 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles

Arrive Hotel



Arrive Hotel

It was only a matter of time before Silicon Valley went south. Former Facebook employee Ezra Callahan recently opened this 32-room contemporary, midcentury modern-inspired hotel in the north end of Palm Spring’s Uptown Design District. Designed by Chris Pardo, Arrive is open and airy with an abundance of natural light. As with all lodging in this hot desert climate, the best part of the stylish hotel is the 66-foot pool, Jacuzzi (for chilly nights), and a luxurious wet room. When hunger strikes, indulge in alfresco eats at the onsite Reservoir restaurant.

When: Opened February 2016

Where: 1551 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs

Hotel Zeppelin



Hotel Zeppelin 

Anyone looking to live out their hippie fantasies should book a room at the newly opened Hotel Zeppelin in San Francisco. Viceroy’s latest property, the psychedelic Union Square spot boasts 196 guest rooms and suites appointed with 60’s-inspired furnishings and amenities like vintage-inspired record players. A downstairs peace-themed game room has skeeball, shuffleboard, an oversized electronic Bingo board synced with a dynamic sound system, and a quick-shot basketball wall, perfect for occupying significant others while the ladies go shopping. 

When: Opened March 2016 

Where: 545 Post St., San Francisco

Crystal Universe, 2015 | Pace Art + Technology



Pace Art + Technology 

The recent opening of this cutting-edge gallery is reason to make the trip down to Silicon Valley. Pace has taken an interest in art and technology since the 60’s and has always looked for ways to support artist experimentation. Now, this space is dedicated to collaboration with interdisciplinary art groups, collectives, and studios who are pushing the envelope in the art-meets-tech sphere. Currently on view is Japan-based group teamLab’s 20 site-responsive and immersive digital works spanning multiple gallery rooms. Later this year, look out for Random International’s (you know, the group behind the perpetually sold-out Rain Room) site-specific immersive environment designed for Pace.

When: Through Fri. 7/1 

Where: 300 El Camino Real, Menlo Park



“Duchamp to Pop” 

It can’t be argued that Marcel Duchamp influenced the Pop Art movement in a major way, paving the path for widespread acceptance of readymades as art, as proliferated by artists like himself, Andy Warhol, and Jim Dine. Drawing from the museum’s own rich collection—former curator Walter Hopps was a huge fan and it was his personal goal to host Duchamp’s first major museum retrospective in the 1960s—the exhibit pays tribute to the artist and his impact on artists born half a century later. 

When: Through Mon. 8/29 

Where: Norton Simon Museum, 411 W. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena
