Through July 29, Pacific Design Center’s Blue Lobby features three alluring solo sculpture exhibits that pair natural materials with industrial ones: Proposal for New Landscapes by Nobuo Sekine, one of the key founders of Japan’s Mono-ha (“School of Things”) movement and that nods to an overdue exploration of Japanese postwar culture; a retrospective by Italian architect/designer Antonio Pio Saracino and Lautner Beams by LA-based Matt Johnson, featuring metaphysical visualizations of string theory as re-purposed steel cast-offs from John Lautner’s demolished Shusett House.

Turkey Trot Los Angeles returns to Downtown Los Angeles on Thanksgiving morning, inviting runners ages two and up to participate in friendly competition and family fun for Turkey Day.

Featuring 5K and 10K courses that start and finish in front of the City Hall, thousands of runners will be dressed in costumes of turkeys, pilgrims, and pies will follow a scenic course through Bunker Hill and Spring Street passing by such sites as the new Broad Museum, Grand Park, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and MOCA.

Families can bring little ones for the “Widdle Wobble” (ages 2-12), which is a fun run around Grand Park and features a fantastic kid zone. Participants can also enjoy memorable photo opportunities with the 20 ft. tall turkey in front of the City Hall finish line.

This event not only brings the fun before the feast, but also offers a chance to give back to those in need.
