GUESS… where SAGA Los Angeles is visiting June 16th.
GUESS makes it all possible! SAGA LA will visit the Marciano Art Foundation (MAF) on Saturday June 16th at 11:00 am. For those unfamiliar with this newer museum. MAF was established by Maurice and Paul Marciano, the founders of Guess, to grant the public access to the Marciano Art Collection housed in the repurposed Scottish Rites Temple on Wilshire Boulevard in Hancock Park.
The collection contains works by well-established, mid-career and emerging artists, predominantly from the 1990s to present. It is their hope that the public will be inspired to appreciate and engage in the transformative power of contemporary art.
Long before Hollywood existed, Masons were staging elaborate costumed rituals in front of fantastical painted backdrops. Indeed, many of the film industry’s early pioneers, including Cecil B. DeMille, Louis B. Mayer, Darryl F. Zanuck, and Walt Disney, were Masons. Information regarding the Masons secret staging of Scottish Rite rituals, wardrobes, props, and backdrops have also been preserved and are displayed at this museum.
Our group is limited to 11 people for an 11:00 am admission. The MAF is located at 4357 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles. More information is available at www.marcianoartfoundation.org.
People can meet for an optional pre-museum breakfast around 10:00 am at Dupar’s in the Farmer’s Market located at the intersection of Beverly and Fairfax about 2 miles from MAF. Dupar’s has by far the best pancakes in Los Angeles.
Saturday July 14, SAGA Goes to the Hollywood Bowl.
Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins and Christopher Cross and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra under the direction of Thomas Wilkins.
These three ambassadors of contemporary pop take you on a journey of epic hits and legendary rock sounds. The rich baritone vocals of Michael McDonald, the footloose fun of Kenny Loggins, and the sensitive stylings of Christopher Cross make it a concert you won’t want to miss, with each artist playing his own set with orchestra.
SAGA has purchased a limited number of group tickets in Section K2, rows 10 & 11, seats 101 to 106 which are on the aisle. We plan to arrange a pre concert picnic and are selling these tickets via our website at $65 each.

SAGA has two campouts planned for this Summer
Shady Cove Spring Campout - AVAILABLE NOW
June 22 - 24, 2018
Come join SAGA at our Spring outing to the Shady Cove Group Camp. The trip is a joint venture with San Diego SAGA, and offers good food, easy day hikes, and a very beautiful setting with a lot of privacy. The campsite is located at 7280 feet near Keller Peak, in the San Bernardino National Forest, not far from Running Springs. There are many hikes in the area, or you can visit the unique mountain towns of Big Bear or Lake Arrowhead.
SAGA’s camping trips provide a chance to escape the fast ace of the city, and this trip offers beautiful vistas in a portion of Southern California unfamiliar to most non-native Angelinos. The trip which costs $80 for members or guests will includes all meals and beverages, beginning with a Friday evening light meal, and concluding with a Sunday Brunch. Deadline to signup for Shady Cove is Monday June 11, 2018.
