When animals are rescued from dangerous living situations or seized from the hands of smugglers, STAR Eco Station provides second chances at peaceful lives. The facility offers a haven for more than 200 rescued animals and educates the public as an environmental science museum. During public tours, guides lead guests through exhibits of rescued exotic animals, such as parrots, pythons, and wildcats, while explaining the habits, history, and New Year's resolutions of each creature.
The recipient of multiple awards from media and government agencies, STAR Eco Station also provides educational outreach programs to more than 40 California school districts and works in concert with conservation organizations such as the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Paw Project, and Heal the Bay.
FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.
The Vault houses a rich collection of classic photographs from Hollywood, music, and sports history. Neil Leifer's photo of Muhammad Ali's KO victory over Sonny Liston appears beside Frank Worth's glamour shots of Marilyn Monroe, printed on archival paper handmade from Frank Sinatra's pocket lint. The Vault shares its collection with the public through periodic gallery exhibitions.
Teale Street plays host to handy hands with a 4,000-square-foot studio encompassing an expansive clay studio, a stone carving yard, and communal workspaces for professional artists and hobbyists alike. Clay-sculpture classes are open to sculptors of all experience levels, as Teale Street's bevy of experienced and accomplished artists serve as studio instructors, helping students hone the basics during intimate, three-hour gatherings. Amateur chiselers start with the fundamentals of traditional figure sculpture to help them become more comfortable with manipulation and instill a basic understanding of anatomy, proportion, structure, and how Abe Lincoln got to be so large and memorialized. Students are then free to mold their clay into an earthen likeness of their choosing, with all clay and tools provided.
Bryan Freeman wanted two things out of his career: to meet new people and spend time outdoors. With this in mind, Mr. Freeman's path seemed obvious. He would start giving bike tours. A self-described "fact guy," the expert guide draws upon his extensive knowledge of the Venice area to delight both tourists and California natives. From the Venice canals to the spacious mailboxes of celebrity homes, the expert guide tells stories about famous locations and uncovers some of the area's hidden gems. "Everyone always says they had no idea the tour would be so exciting," he says. "People think Venice is just the beach, but just a block away there is so much more."
Mr. Freeman doesn't keep his groups confined to the seats and cowboy saddles of bicycles. He frequently points out ideal spots for photo ops and occasionally pauses for activities, such as letting groups spray paint their names onto a legal-graffiti wall. He also supplies optional helmet cams that capture videos for souvenirs.
