Santa Monica Museum of Art started big: upon its founding in 1984, it moved right into a space designed by famed architect Frank Gehry. And it only got bigger. 14 years later, it relocated to expanded digs in the Bergamot Station Arts Center. That's remarkable in part because the museum has no permanent archive—instead of amassing a collection, it fills its schedule with rotating exhibits and the fruit of partnerships with with some of the world's most innovative modern artists.
A main gallery and two project rooms have showcased work including landscape and portrait paintings, mixed media, video sculpture, and creative installations from local and international artists. Programs ranging from modern crafting workshops to book-club meetings led by a guest artist or scholar also fill the space with creativity. To immerse guests deeper in the world of modern art, SMMoA also offers guided private-group tours and special members-only tours led by executive director Elsa Longhauser.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck assuming he was at an optimal level of fitness? These questions are designed to open the door to a whole collection of functional and fashionable women’s fitness gear, organized to match each customer's distinct style and preferred athletic pursuits. Shoppers will find all sorts of things to cover their tops and bottoms, such as racerback or cami tanks, short- and long-sleeve shirts, capri pants, and fitted shorts, located under a tab called “Your Personalized Style”. Everything else in the digital shop, meanwhile, lives in Ellie's catalogue, updated with new looks every month.
No matter the item, all of Ellie's clothing is carefully made to not only fit, but to flatter, all shapes and sizes. Designers craftily insert seams to create the appearance of a smaller waist, and add side panels and style-lines to pants to lengthen and contour legs and instantly lift and shape butts. Made from high-quality, extra-soft material, the line's stretchable designs will never shrink, no matter how many times they run through the dryer.
