For the MAK Center’s annual community day, co-curators Kimberli Meyer and Susan Morgan gave a mid-day tour of the exhibition Sympathetic Seeing: Esther McCoy and the Heart of American Modernist Architecture and Design.

As well, the MAK Center welcomed Trailer Talk, a live performance, community event, and recorded public conversation. Its creator and host, Sabrina Artel, invited participants to sit with her around the kitchen table of a travel trailer, enjoy homemade brownies, and discuss topics that related to Esther McCoy. Trailer Talk events like this typically become a weekly half hour radio show broadcast on community stations, exploring civic engagement through conversations about culture, politics, the arts and the environment.

In the afternoon, the MAK Center hosted a book launch and discussion for Architecture: A Woman’s Profession. Editor Tanja Kullack presented her new book, and participating architects Barbara Bestor, Margaret CrawfordMonica Ponce de Leon, Dagmar Richter, and Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter joined her in a discussion moderated by Sam Lubell.

MAK Day was part of Pacific Standard Time’s Hollywood/Wilshire Focus Weekend – Pacific Standard Time
