Curious to see inside the restored Seeley's Building at Brand and San Fernando Road? Come to the Grand Opening event tomorrow. From the press release:
Glendale, California, September 12, 2012 - After 6 long years and a $8,000,000 restoration/redesign, the historical Seeley's Furniture building is celebrating its heritage and evolution with the grand opening of 'Seeley Studios', a modern and urban remodel of the historical building for use as creative office and live/work space. The event will be held on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 and will feature live paintings, artist galleries, music, entertainment, a ribbon cutting ceremony and more.
The Seeley Building was originally built in 1925 and underwent a Deco/Modern make-over in the 1940's for George Seeley and his furniture warehouse. The building sat untouched for another 65 years before it was converted to urban office space for creative tenants by Live Work Loft. The building will open publicly on Wednesday for the first time in over 18 years since Seeley's Furniture first closed its doors after 60 years in business.
Glendale residents and business owners are welcome to the event and are encouraged to celebrate a historic part of the city being transformed into chic modern live/work and creative space. The architecture and individual spaces will be open for viewing, and many units will house premium artwork from the most creative spirits in Glendale and Los Angeles.
Come and enjoy exhibits and installations from more than thirty prominent artists, some of whom have exhibited in LACMA and MOCA Geffen, as well as other galleries and museums worldwide.
