Celia Bertoia to speak in California

Celia Bertoia, Harry's youngest daughter, will give a presentation on his life and work at Santa Monica's Design Within Reach, a modern furniture showroom. 332 Santa Monica Blvd, just off the 3rd St Promenade, on Thursday April 10, 7 - 9:00 PM. She will bring a few small original Bertoias, talk about the chairs and sculpture, and give you a taste of who this magnificent artist was as a man.

Another April presentation on Bertoia may happen at the Design Within Reach in San Francisco at their beautiful new showroom. It is not yet confirmed, but when it is, we'll let you know.
