LA Forum invites you to the second in a 5-part series exploring various-scaled projects that range from extra small (XS) to extra large (XL). Together we will examine projects significant to the built environment of Los Angeles, with each offering a unique perspective from a local artist or artist group.
Join us Tuesday, July 10th for the second event of the series: the Judson Studio Tour. The event will celebrate the collaboration between the historically significant stained-glass studio, Judson Studios, and Los Angeles-based contemporary artist, Sarah Cain.
The event will begin at the original location of Judson Studios in Highland Park which has been in operation and family-owned since 1897. The current president and fifth-generation stained-glass maker, David Judson, will lead the group on a 30-minute tour of this whimsical property where attendees can see every step of the stained-glass making process.
Following the tour, attendees may make their way to the new, state-of-art glass facility at Judson Studio, where complimentary wine and snacks will be awaiting our arrival. (The new Judson facility is under 1 mile from the Avenue 66 location.)
At the new Judson Studio facility in South Pasadena, artist Sarah Cain will give a brief presentation about her work, her creative process and her most recent public art commission — by the San Francisco Arts Commission — a 148-foot-long stained-glass wall that will be located inside a new terminal at San Francisco International Airport. Judson Studios will give attendees the opportunity to go inside the warehouse-sized glassmaking studio to view Cain’s stained-glass panels in production. 1/3 of the entire piece will be placed in vertical position for all to view.
We hope you’ll join us, Sarah Cain and the Judson Studio for this inspiring and unforgettable experience!
