Shirley Temple’s 90th Birthday Tea Party

The Santa Monica History Museum is excited to announce it will host a Shirley Temple birthday tea which will feature an exclusive one-day “Little Princess” pop-up exhibit featuring items that have not been displayed at the museum before.

Shirley Temple, a Santa Monica native, is known for her work as a child actress during the 1930s. In addition to other film costumes and personal wardrobe, the day-long pop-up will feature Temple’s reunited princess costume from the 1939 Technicolor film “The Little Princess.” The costume has a tumultuous history, and this showing will be the first to unify it with her character’s crown and scepter. These gold-plated accessories, created by famed costume jeweler Eugene Joseff, were unseen in Joseff’s archive for seventy-nine years.

Tickets: $35.00

A ticket to the tea party will feature:
• Viewing of a one-day exhibit of her newly reunited Little Princess costume ensemble.
• Viewing of a Selection of Iconic dresses.
• Viewing of Never-before-displayed items.

Human Rights Watch: Film, Panel and Reception featuring Anita Hill

Join us for a special screening of ANITA: SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER, a documentary about the Anita Hill firestorm in the days before #MeToo.

Followed by Q&A with Academy Award-winner Freida Lee Mock.

Tuesday, May 1, 2018
6:30 pm | Doors open; Reception with hors d’oeuvres
7:15 pm | Film Screening, followed by Q&A

Presented at United Talent Agency’s screening room
9336 Civic Center Drive
, Beverly Hills

On October 11, 1991, a poised young law professor sent shock waves through the nation as she sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee intrepidly testifying to the lewd behavior of a Supreme Court nominee.

In the midst of the #MeToo movement, the Film Club revisits Academy Award-winner Freida Lee Mock’s ANITA, which crystallizes the sexist power dynamics in the room that day and unravels the impact of that lightning-rod moment on Anita Hill’s life and the broader discussion of gender inequality in America.

“One woman, stepping into a mess of political, racial and sexual power plays … makes for rapt viewing.” — Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

All attendees are invited to stay after the screening for Q&A with the director of the film and the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch’s Women’s Rights Division.

Freida Lee Mock, Director • Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, Actor, Producer, Educator • Sharon Waxman, Moderator, Founder & CEO, The Wrap


Tickets are unreserved and seating is first-come, first-served.

Through regularly scheduled screenings and discussions, Human Rights Watch’s Film Club in Los Angeles creates a forum to advance awareness of human rights issues and empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference.

The Murray Neidorf Memorial BBQ Presented by Sugar & Stilettos Charitable Foundation

The Sugar & Stilettos Charitable Foundation raises awareness and funds for the Westside Food Bank to help end the issues of hunger and food insecurity in Los Angeles. Through a bi-annual bake sale, which brings together the best bakeries, restaurants and shopping in town, Sugar & Stilettos has raised over $300,000.00 since its first event in 2011. This translates into over one million meals! The highlight each year is the crowning of “Mr. Sugar & Stilettos,” where a well-known personality dons a pair of stilettos, a tiara and a sash for a good cause. The family-friendly event is full of fun, laughs and plenty of sweet treats!

This year, the event will be The Murray Neidorf Memorial BBQ, in honor of Founder/President Nanci Christopher’s father. It will have a UCLA theme with appearances from the school’s NCAA Championship gymnasts, spirit squad, band members and possibly Joe and Josie Bruin! An athletic video highlight reel on a big screen will feature memorable moments on the field, while a silent auction – with items including season tickets for both UCLA football and basketball for the 2018-2019 season and autographed balls from Coach Kelly (football) and the men’s basketball team – will help raise money for the Westside Food Bank, among many other items. Sugar & Stilettos’ signature baked goods from LA’s top bakeries and the annual autographed stilettos, as well as donated items from restaurant gift cards to luxurious hotel stays and diamond necklaces, will also be sold or raffled for a good cause. The BBQ is family friendly and children are most welcome!

Schedule:
4:00pm Registration
4:30pm BBQ is served
6:00pm Mr. Sugar & Stilettos Crowning Ceremony

Pico Block Party: Empowering Youth Voices!

Food trucks, music, open studios, performances, and more! 18th Street Arts Center holds its third major Pico Block Party community festival focused around youth artists and empowering youth voices on Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 3-6 PM. The family-friendly artistic festival will feature youth-led art-making workshops, performances, open studios with resident artists, exhibitions, food trucks, and other creative activities.

The Pico Block Party series grew out of 18th Street Arts Center’s in-depth community outreach programs, including its bilingual neighborhood oral history project, CultureMapping90404.org. That project spurred the creation of a Neighborhood Advisory Council in 2018, who helped shaped the content for this Pico Block Party along the theme of “Empowering Youth Voices.” With this festival, we celebrate the many Santa Monica high school and college-age youth deeply invested in political activism and organizing, and young artists throughout our community and beyond.
