We look forward to sharing lots of fun and unique news, events, profiles and updates on what’s happening in the NoHo Arts District.
Jaroslav ‘Jerry’ Gebr, the legendary scenic artist behind some of Hollywood’s greatest films, will be honored by the Art Directors Guild's Gallery 800 (ADG, IATSE Local 800) in a special exhibit entitled “A Tribute to Jaroslav Gebr.”
Having just been elected President of the Art Directors Guild this past February, for a three-year term, Production Designer Mimi Gramatky knows a thing or two about progress. Her ascent to the top of the 2,000-member organization is in sharp contrast to what was expected of a woman with her talents back when she first began her career. “I remember going to the career planning office at Berkeley with my degree in environmental design, and they said, ‘Great, you can be a teacher or a secretary.’ In those days, even with a degree from Berkeley, that’s what women were expected to do.”
