Machine Project Talk

At the Parrish Art Museum

   Mark Allen, the founder and director of the Machine Project, a Los Angeles-based cultural organization that organizes “vacations for plants, concerts for dentists, and car theft workshops for children” from an Echo Park storefront, will speak about the group on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. at the Parrish Art Museum. Its aim is to investigate art, technology, natural history, science, music, literature, and food in an offbeat and creative manner, in diverse settings such as beaches, museums, and parking lots.

   Mr. Allen’s illustrated talk is $10; free for members, children, and students. Space is limited and advance reservations have been suggested.
