House Plant Vacations At The Hammer Museum

Houseplant Vacation – Plant Drop off

The Hammer invites you to give your houseplant a vacation during our August cultural retreat for plants. Throughout the entire month, participant’s plants will be installed in the light flooded Lindbrook terrace, and presented with a series of readings, performances and musical events, for plants every Saturday from 1-4pm. See below for the full schedule and for information about plant portraiture by Lisa Anne Abash. (Please no sick/infested plants – this is a vacation, not rehab).

About A.I.R.

In June 2009, the Hammer Museum was awarded a $1 million Arts Innovation Fund grant from the James Irvine Foundation to create a new model for visitor engagement, conceived and driven by artists. To that end, in November, the museum welcomed its first Public Engagement Artist in Residence (A.I.R.), Machine Project. The Echo Park-based collective, led by Mark Allen, has produced nearly 40 programs onsite including an overnight Dream-In; microconcerts in a coatroom-turned-theater; and needle pointing group-therapy sessions.

For additional information on these and other A.I.R. projects, please check the museum’s blog http://hammer.ucla.edu/newsblogs/ or Machine Project’s website.

Greening Los Angeles: Ports Of LA Demonstrate Vision

Sustainability Award Given by Senator Fran Pavley to Vision Motorcorp.

“Zero Emissions Vehicles for the 21st Century”

Vision COO & Chairman Lawrence  Weisdorn
Vision COO & Chairman Lawrence Weisdorn

Each month Sen. Pavley recognizes a business in her district that is dedicated to preserving our environment by living and working responsibly. This month she’s “proud to announce that I presented an Environmental Sustainability Award to Vision Industries in Santa Monica.”

Vision Industries has created a zero-emission engine for cars and trucks. They have dedicated themselves to being in the forefront of eco-friendly technology by developing a hydrogen fuel cell hybrid-electric truck. This has proven beneficial to the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles and the state of California in their goal to be national leaders in the use of eco-friendly technology. Vision’s efforts in reducing the amount of air pollution created in this state are truly admirable and help set the standards for other businesses.

– Sen. Pavley March Newsletter


Due to the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach’s Clean Truck Program that offers cash incentives for the replacement of older dirty diesel trucks and the proximity and availability of low cost hydrogen, Vision is targeting truck fleet operators that haul goods from the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles for the initial sales of their zero emission trucks.

SAN PEDRO, Calif. – January 15, 2010 – Expanding its commitment to bringing cutting-edge, zero-emission solutions to port operations, the Port of Los Angeles is entering into negotiations with Los Angeles-based Vision Industries for the purchase and evaluation of Visions hydrogen fuel cell hybrid-electric trucks >>  >>>  >>>  Read MORE
