Let's Get Lost - CBRE Installation

Spring 2014, a collection of images from Let's Get Lost: Polaroids From The Coast  is installed as part of the new global headquarters of commercial real estate giant CBRE. Located on Hope Street, 25 floors above downtown Los Angeles, the Fortune 500 firm's innovative penthouse workplace offers glass walls, no assigned seating and Steel Case iPhone docking conference tables...    An A+ for urban visionary & managing director Lewis Horne.  Lew chose the 12 color photographs of Golden Era Los Angles to celebrate the city's historic architectural past in the midst of such futuristic surroundings. CBRE is committed to architectural preservation.  As observed by curator Joe Lewis, the Orpheum Theatre was at one time the most modern, technologically advanced movie house in the country. Modern is a term dependent  on where you looking from along the time line. ..

 The CBRE collection is curated by Joe Lewis, Dean of the Claire Trevor School of the Arts at U.C. Irvine. 

Prints are available through Timothy Yarger Fine Art, Beverly Hills.
