2 PM The Worlds of Hunt Slonem Lecture & Book Signing
Recalling the storied lives of 19th century naturalists and romantics, Hunt Slonem depicts both natural subjects—including birds, rabbits, and butterflies—and portraits—such as saints, Rudolf Valentino, Billie Holiday, and Abraham Lincoln—in his epically colorful canvases. Using multiplicity as a governing principle, Slonem has created a body of work as inimitable—and wildly colorful—as it is recognizable. Slonem will discuss the myriad influences and overarching themes of his career, followed by a signing of the new monograph, The Worlds of Hunt Slonem.
4 PM FABRIK MAGAZINE | The Inter-Influence of Art and Design
This panel will discuss the relationship of fine art and utilitarian design in contemporary society. Art and design are two fields of creative endeavor that parallel and closely resemble each other. They interact and interface less than one might suspect — or one might prefer. What kind of place does art have in design? What kind of place does utilitarian design — indeed, utilitarian thinking — have in fine art? These questions are just a starting point for this discussion. Panelists include: Linda Allen, Interior Designer; Rex Bruce, Director, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA); Brad Howe, Artist; Stefan Lawrence, Designer and Founder of Twentieth; and Leonardo Ledesma, Art Consultant. Moderated by: Peter Frank, Art Critic and Curator.

2 PM DWELL | Homes for Artists and Art Collectors
Together with her co-panelists – an art collector and two architects – Dwell Deputy Editor Jaime Gillin peeks inside homes designed for artists and art collectors, and explores the ways residential architecture can best highlight and display art. Panelists include: Jaime Gillin, Deputy Editor at Dwell; Linda Taalman, Architect; Taalman Koch, Architecture; Tom Marble, Architect, Marbletecture; and Jeff Wardell, Art Collector and Director of Chester’s Blacksmith Shop.
4 PM ARTILLERY | A Matter of Degrees: MFA, PhD in Art: Is it all BS?
A panel discussion moderated by Tulsa Kinney, editor of Artillery: Killer Text on Art. Art schools have become big business, churning out career artists ready for the explosive art market. But the graduates walk away with colossal student loans, often in the six-digit figures. Is it worth it? Is it necessary? Does it guarantee success in the art world? Participating panelists: Betty Ann Brown, Jane Chafin, Tucker Neel, Anuradha Vikram, and Austin Young.
