Segal Shuart was honored to be involved in The Wende Museum's "Beyond the Wall" fundraising gala last Saturday night. The planning and visioning really paid off and we enjoyed walking the red carpet, sipping on signature drinks and hearing from the many dignitaries in attendance. The palms that we planted only two weeks prior created a dramatically different, exciting new look for the former National Guard Armory building that's been abandoned for some time now.
A sampling of Cold War art and artifacts were on display as were renderings of the future space. We picked up a copy of the massive new Taschen book, four years in the making, which was completed just in time for the gala and for the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall (11/9). It was fun to see Benedikt Taschen and Justin Jampol, Executive Director of The Wende Museum, unveil the book by driving it into the event space in an authentic East German Trabant.
Now that the gala has come and gone, we are very much looking forward to continuing our design work and to seeing the final product come to fruition. With so much happening in Culver City right now, this new space is gearing up for many years of success. To learn more about the event and about the museum, check out this article.
