In early September, LALH asked members and supporters to help fund a new LALH filmRuth Shellhorn: Midcentury Design in Southern California. Thanks to our generous donors, we reached our goal of $15,000! Next spring we will bring the story of Ruth Shellhorn to life with a twelve minute film documenting her nearly sixty-year career as a modernist landscape architect whose work helped shape the region’s unique design aesthetic.
Watch our Facebook page for news blog of the film’s release this winter. You’ll soon be able to view it on our website at lalh.org via YouTube, where our first four films—Community by Design, Designing in the Prairie Spirit, Fletcher Steele and Naumkeag, and the award-winning Best Planned City in the World—have been enjoyed tens of thousands of times.
