CCAS + SacMod = Art-a-Go-Go

Greetings from SacMod!

Our friends at the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento (CCAS) are hosting Art-a-Go-Go: Art, Eats and Fun by the Pool on July 21, 2012 from 5:30 to 8:30pm. "Come dressed in your coolest 60's attire and enjoy cocktails, food, and music -- Mid-Century Modern style! You'll have an opportunity to buy art from among 20 invited regional artists, including Gregory Kondos." Tickets available via WePay.

This phenomenal MCM Land Park home was featured in SacMod's 2010 Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour. For those of you who missed seeing our 2010 tour, you're in for a real treat. The home was completed in 1963 for Robert and Jeanette Powell and includes its original pool, dramatic floating staircase, broken slate floors and concrete masonry. An open floor plan plus floor-to-ceiling windows provide a perfect setting to showcase modern furniture and art!

SacMod was invited by CCAS to be an honorary host at the event; we will have a silent auction of a "Blast from the Past" bag that includes:
- SacMod Annual Associate Membership good until 12/31/13
- Atomic Ranch Summer 2012 issue
- Etch-a-Sketch keychain
- X-ray Specs
- Silly Putty
- Vintage Finger Monsters
- Wind-up Robot
- Vintage Scary Scooters
- retro candy

Look for SacMod's many events coming up soon:
- The highly anticipated next big tour -- the  2013 Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour -- will be in Spring of 2013.
- On October 25, 2012 we will be joining AIA Central Valley and the Crocker Art Museum for a first run screening of the new documentary Coast Modern.
- On October 14, 2012, we will be participating in the last of a series of Design Rides -- a free bicycle-led tour to various MCM-related destinations.
- We are also part of a larger group of individuals who are helping The California Museum on an exhibit featuring famous modernist Ray Eames, who was born and raised in Sacramento.

Hope you're having a great summer and hope to see you at Art-a-Go-Go!
