Postopolis! Blogathon in L.A.

April 3, 2009 · Print This Article

I’d go just to get drunk and stare at the glittery high-rises at night, but the dense program of talks on urban landscape are right up my alley, too: in conjunction with Los Angeles Art Weekend, Postopolis!, a “live 5-day blogathon of back-to-back discussions, interviews, panel talks, slideshows, films and parties themed around landscape and the built environment” is taking place on the rooftop of The Standard Hotel (ah, bliss).

Luckily you don’t to be in L.A. to partake: the Storefront for Art and Architecture is streaming all of the talks live from 5-11 pm Pacific time via USTREAM. The program kicked off a few days ago, but you can still catch some great speakers tonight and tomorrow–check out the Friday and Saturday schedule below, and the Storefront’s website for further details and info on the six bloggers who organized the ‘thon.
