Getting Close To Opening!!

Comment

Dear Never Built Backers:

We're getting close! The official opening of Never Built: Los Angeles is on the evening of July 27 at the A+D Museum!

For those of you whose pledges entitled you to tickets to the show's opening, your names will be on the guest list on July 27. 

And in case you want one more excuse to party with us, we're hosting the NEVER BUILT PREVIEW PARTY at Union Station's Harvey House on June 20. It's going to be a memorable gala, showing off models, prints and animations from the show and featuring food and drink from some of downtown L.A.'s best restaurants, with music by KCRW DJ (and urban planner!) Raul Campos. 

Tickets can be purchased at http://aplusd.org/nb-preview

We hope you can make it! And either way, we can't wait to see you at Never Built!!!

Best,
Sam, Greg, and the Never Built Team
