The Annenberg Community Beach House is pleased to present Helen Lessick, our 2014 Writer in Residence. She'll be starting her tenure on January 6 and working from the Marion Davies Guest House through March 17. Helen will be holding public office hours every Monday and Saturday from 11am-1pm onsite. If you are an artist or arts administrator you may find her extensive experience in the fields of public art, grantseeking and arts engagement to be of great interest! She will be welcoming questions from the public both here and in person. 

Please follow this blog - she'll be posting updates and information here; you can also call the Beach House at 310-458-4904 for up to the minute updates. 

Reservations for her public events will be available at annenbergbeachhouse.com/beachculture on a rolling basis starting in late December.

Helen Lessick is a conceptual artist, author, and public art consultant who is spending her time as the 2014 Writer in Residence finishing a project called a "Field Guide to Time," writing three essays on art in the public sphere, and leading two discussion groups about art and community as well as a proposal writing workshop for artists. Born and raised near Philadelphia, Helen headed west for her education. She travels widely to write, research, make art in public, participate in the founding of artist-run organizations and work in nonprofit and municipal cultural programs. Her practice is based in Los Angeles. More info at lessick.net
