Culver City

I ❤ Culver City ~ Opens Nov 16th


One place in town that doesn't seem to get a lot of attention is Culver City. But this part of L.A. has a fascinating history, a vibrant present, and a lot of interesting people including artists, filmmakers, and photographers who keep its creative heart beating. Two of those photographers, Erin Xavier & Tamar Christensen, have created a photo art show to celebrate the city's past and present, which they open on Nov 16th at Sol Salon. Keep reading for more info.

In 1936, the municipality of Culver City, California, officially adopted the motto: "The Heart of Screenland." It was no secret then that this little town was arguably the real place where movie magic was happening even as the bleach-white Hollywood sign floated over Los Angeles promising glamorous yet misleading stardom. Today, Culver City is booming with growth while maintaining its “Mayberry” feel that harkens back to those early days. Those who live here know that Culver City is the place to be. The place where you can plant some roots and make a home while mingling with the stars.

Photographers Erin Xavier & Tamar Christensen have captured today’s essence of “The Heart of Screenland” in their premier exhibit, “I Black heart (cards) Culver City.” Both artists are over-the-moon excited (in a Ricky & Lucy kind of way) to invite you to sip some wine, listen to some music, and take in some art and culture.
