April 9 > The Tile House > Obscura Day

UPDATE: This event is sold out! Thank you!
Join us on Saturday, April 9 for an extremely exciting adventure to The Tile House, one of the most beautiful homes in Los Angeles, as part of Obscura Day.

For the past 40 years, George Ehling has been transforming his Hollywood Hills home into a veritable magic castle. Working entirely by hand, Ehling has covered every surface of his residence with intricate tile mosaics. This wonder of craftsmanship is not open to the public, but for one afternoon only, we'll be getting a private tour of the home from Ehling to learn more about this modern-day Simon Rodia. This adventure is part of Obscura Day, where people all over the world lead outings to odd or out-of-the-way destinations.

The tour is limited to only 35 people, and you must sign up at the Obscura Day site (if that link doesn't work for some reason, try this one). We can only take a limited amount of vehicles to the site, so when you RSVP, you'll see more detailed information about where to meet and what to do.

Thanks to Ford & Ching for sponsoring this event, and to GOOD for giving us a great meeting place.

Many more photos can be found here and here.
