  • Rendering female models and celebrities on large-scale canvases and with quick, expressive brushstrokes, painter Katherine Bernhardt examines representations of beauty in mainstream media and fashion photography. She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

Students connect LAX travelers to the city

Sep 30, 2013
Architecture/Landscape/Interiors Donghia Master Class
Spotlight Category: College

New York-based designer Shashi Caan led the Donghia Master Class this March for fourteen talented Architecture/Landscape/Interiors students. ReLAX, the week-long design charrette, was based in Caan’s belief in collaboration and the human experience. Students designed “watering holes” for LAX traveler layovers, connecting them to downtown, to the beach and wetlands, and to local residents. A $50,000 grant from the Angelo Donghia Foundation has supported this Residency for the last five years. Foundation Trustee Steven Sonet attended Caan’s public lecture at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, and participated in the first day of the Master Class.

*Among juror comments:
It is refreshing to see a project that brings pleasure back to design, especially to the stressful experience of air travel.
The concept of connecting both to existing transportation and communities, such as downtown and Culver City, is great.
