Inspired by Shel Silverstein's famous story, the Los Angeles Children's Theater's "The Giving Tree: The Play" recreates the love between a young boy and an apple tree through words, gestures, dance, and music to delight both children and parents alike. Here is a story about childhood and adulthood, about giving and receiving, about dreams and disappointment, and about innocence and guilt. We experience through music, dance, and gestures how as we move through the seasons of life, age, change, and take on new identities, and learn the meaning of our interrelationship and interconnectivity to Nature and our planet. Performing on Sat & Sun at 11 am, from 11/22-12/28, with a running time of around 35 minutes, "The Giving Tree: The Play," is a perfect gift to give to the "young at heart" during Thanksgiving and through the Holiday season. For $7.50 tickets please use the code: redtri14 on our site full price tickets are $15.

The Skirball Cultural Center is pleased to present an exhibition project with the Los Angeles–based art collaborative Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young). Fallen Fruit’s community-based projects use fruit as a medium to explore social engagement. The exhibition will include a display of specially designed pomegranate wallpaper in the Skirball’s Ruby Gallery. After exploring the Skirball’s permanent collection of Jewish cultural artifacts, Burns and Young found inspiration for their project in a seventeenth-century ketubbah (marriage contract)—specifically the decorative use of the pomegranate, a symbol of fertility and marriage. During the course of their residency at the Skirball, the artists will research the emotional, cultural, and intellectual “ingredients that make for a great relationship” and collaborate with the public to create a new relationship contract inspired by Jewish heritage. Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener, and Austin Young. Since 2013, David Burns and Austin Young have continued the collaborative work.
