Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories features works by more than forty artists, including Harriet Powers, Bisa Butler, and Sanford Biggers. Come celebrate the artistry and vision of a diverse and largely under-recognized group of creators in an exhibition that brings to light stories that enrich, deepen, and complicate our understanding of the American experience. Fabric of a Nation illuminates the unique capacity quilts have to tell stories and convey a sense of humanity. Whether produced as works of art or utilitarian objects, their tactile, intricate mode of creation and traditional use in the home impart deeply personal narratives of their makers and offer an intimate picture of American life. Originally organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Skirball’s presentation will feature additional works by Los Angeles artists Sabrina Gschwandtner, Ramsess, and Sula Bermúdez-Silverman, as well as a quilt from its own collection highlighting key moments in American Jewish history. read less

Everyone who is ready to get dirty and help! Family-friendly. What: Remove invasive species When: Sunday, February 5, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM (NOTE: Don't be late! The gate will be closed after we enter the wetlands) Why: Tu B'Shevat is the Jewish New Year for Trees! Native plants are the structural and functional backbone of the Ballona Wetlands ecosystem because they provide food, water, and habitat. Unfortunately, fast-growing non-native vegetation can outcompete, outgrow, and crowd out our slow-growing native species, thereby reducing wildlife population. Nearly 130 square miles of Los Angeles’ storm drains run into Ballona Creek, which means gutter trash from as far away as North Hollywood can end up right here in the wetlands. This is hazardous to sensitive wildlife, decreases water quality, and mars the beauty of the natural landscape. Your hands-on participation helps revive this rare coastal habitat and keep our coastal waters safe and clean. read less
