Passerelle 2014 Year in Review

We did some great things in 2014! Starting off the year with SFMOMA's Project Los Altos, nearly 20,000 visitors explored the various galleries and installations throughout downtown Los Altos from November 2013 through early March 2014. According to SFMOMA's data, daily attendance ranged from 170 to 360+ in the three indoor galleries, with 242 State Street being the most popular gallery to visit.

242 State Street also hosted two additional avant garde pop-ups during 2014: Jason Campbell's Pop-Up HQ in May featuring high end fashion, and Christie's Pop-Up Los Altos in September showcasing a phenomenal collection of contemporary art up for auction. In June 359 State Street hosted an art pop-up featuring photography by Bill Scull of Gallery 9, and then in November housed the Kilgoris Project's annual holiday craft sale.

Also in May, the City of Los Altos, Safeway, and Passerelle partnered on the State Street Green in May-June to once again bring a pop-up park to the 300 block of State Street. While short-lived, the Green returned in August for a full four weeks in the form of the Third Street Green which was a hit. A more intimate and less obstructive (from a traffic perspective) location, Third Street between State Street and Plaza North hosted twelve live summer concerts, regular and free community program from yoga and art activities to The Bubble Man and Helix science sessions. If you missed it, you can learn more about 3SG here.

Helix wrapped up an incredibly successful year, attracting on average 900+ visitors weekly throughout its tenure in downtown Los Altos at 316-320 State Street. Helix partnered with countless local schools, community groups, and local businesses to create innovative programming that incited curiosity and creativity in kids and adults of all ages. While we are sad to see them go, we are proud of our collective accomplishments and feel that the community pride in and support of Helix is a resounding testament to the success of this community experiment.

Perhaps most importantly, Passerelle welcomed several tenants new and old: in May the European Cobblery relocated to its new location at 385 State Street, and in June Earth Beauty Apothecary opened at 271 State Street. The Botanist relocated down the street to 170 State to share space with The Makery in July.  In December, two delicious new businesses opened at the corner of First and State - Tin Pot Creamery at 201 First and Cho's Dim Sum at 209 First. Watch for a grand opening celebration for each of them in the coming weeks! We are also excited to announce the arrival of a new venture capital firm, Goodwater Capital to the upstairs of 320 State Street. More great things are in store for 2015, so stay tuned!

PARK(ing) Day 2014 comes to Linden Tree Books and Earth Beauty Apothecary!

This year we will set up our seating, turf, chalk/magnet art planter walls plus shade umbrellas on two parking spaces outside Linden Tree Books and Earth Beauty Apothecary at 256-271 State Street. 

PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide celebration in which citizens, artists, cities, community groups etc transform urban parking spaces into temporary public parks for all to enjoy. To learn more about PARK(ing) Day please visit the PARK(ing) Day official website.

Helix Happy Hours!

Here's a new fun way to kick off your weekend in Downtown Los Altos: Third Friday Happy Hours at Helix! This month's event features fractal-generated music by Dr. Stedman Wilson and a talk about Chaos Theory presented by Baiju Bhatt. Bring your friends and enjoy an evening rediscovering Downtown Los Altos!


HELIX HAPPY HOUR: MAY

Friday, May 16th

6:00-8:00pm

Chaos theory reveals the hidden order in many seemingly random phenomena including the flow of meandering rivers and airflow around birds’ wings in flight.  Join us for happy hour as we explore turbulence and self-similarity and enjoy presentations from our special guests.

6:00pm-6:45pm  Fractal-generated music by Stedman Wilson, PhD


Stedman Wilson is a mathematician, and an amateur musician and composer.  He earned a BS in mathematics and physics from Stanford University (2006), and a PhD in mathematics from UCLA (2012).  In college, Stedman was keyboardist and vocalist for “The Institute for the Advancement of Funk and Soul”, a definitively funky band he started together with guitarist and frontman Baiju Bhatt (our speaker for the evening! see below) in 2003.  Friends ever since, Stedman and Baiju have recently reunited at Robinhood, where Stedman currently works as an intern software developer.

Algorithmic composition, including fractal music, provides for a unique and fascinating blend of mathematics and music, and is one of Stedman’s hobbies and passions.  He will present examples of original fractal music generated by a variety of known methods (L-systems, cellular automata), and by an original algorithm based on non-linear dynamics.  A few examples of his music (algorithmic and human) can be found at:  https://soundcloud.com/cooler-paradox


6:45pm-7:30pm  Baiju Bhatt talks about what gets him pumped about Chaos theory


Baiju Prafulkumar Bhatt attended Stanford University and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Physics as well as a Master’s of Science in Mathematics.  He is the co-founder of the mobile commission-free brokerage, Robinhood.  Founded in 2012, Robinhood is one of the fastest growing startups in the financial technology industry. As of May 1st, it has over 330,000 signups on its wait list and has stated it is preparing to launch in mid 2014.  Bhatt co-founded Robinhood along with Vladimir Tenev, a fellow Stanford student. Previously, the two co-founded two technology companies that were focused on high-frequency trading technology. Through building these technologies, the founders realized the potential to bring their innovations to individual investors.

LUXURY, FASHION AND ART MERGE IN LOS ALTOS POP-UP

Los Angeles Stylist Jason Campbell Leans In To Give Silicon Valley A Closet Makeover 

Renowned global stylist, Jason Campbell, by way of Los Angeles and New York, brings his unique approach to creating hyper-organized, fashion-forward closets and a worldwide curated collection of luxury clothing, handbags, and accessories, not easily found, to a Silicon Valley pop-up the week May 6th to May 11th at the newly rejuvenated space at 242 State Street in downtown Los Altos. 

The collection pop-up will open to the public Tuesday, May 6th at 12 noon and will be open daily through Sunday, May 11th - 12 pm to 7 pm.  

Campbell’s Closet HQ, a private platform for digitizing closets for styling, clients include Vanity Fair’s best dressed-listers and women executives including Ivanka Trump, Wendi Murdock, One King’s Lane Founder, Alison Pincus and Silicon Valley’s Lucy Page. 

“Women and men of the Silicon Valley deserve the same streamlined wardrobe choices that make the lives of busy executives in New York and Los Angeles simpler. I give my clients a fashion prescription of focused key pieces that combine with their existing wardrobes, defining their style and supporting their images.” reports Campbell. 

Jason and Closet HQ allow me to transition between my roles as an executive, a mother and a wife with extreme efficiency and smart style,” attests Ivanka Trump. “The Closet HQ digital format allows me to get ready for my ever changing days faster, and planning ahead has eliminated a lot of the stress of my travels.” 

The pop-up site is being housed at 242 State Street, a stunning architectural example of adaptive reuse, converting a former low-roofed restaurant into a light-filled space featuring a floor to ceiling glass-and-steel operable window wall that rolls up to create an indoor-outdoor 2,500 square foot room. Designed by renowned Olson Kundig Architects based in Seattle, the newly completed façade has already received national and international press coverage. In addition to creating a vibrant future restaurant or bar space, the project aimed to bring avant-garde design to downtown Los Altos. In line with this goal, 242 State Street most recently housed SFMOMA’s acclaimed Project Los Altos, a four month exhibition of national and international artists whose works responded to the unique character of downtown Los Altos and Silicon Valley. Thanks to Passerelle Investment Company for the generous use of their space at 242 State Street. For leasing information about the space please contact Joe Martignetti with Ventana Property Services at 650.847.2000.

Last week we bid adieu to the SFMOMA's Project Los Altos, which featured Silicon Valley inspired art by nine nationally and internationally acclaimed artists. As one of the sponsors of Project Los Altos, we at Passerelle are interested in learning about how the exhibition was received by the community. We would love to hear your feedback and would greatly appreciate it if you could take 5 minutes and fill out our survey We hope you enjoyed the exhibition and its unique connection to our local community.

If you are interested in experiencing more world class art, make sure to visit the other SFMOMA On The Go series around the Bay Area while the SFMOMA's San Francisco location is under renovation through 2016.

Helix: A Mini-Exploratorium in Downtown Los Altos!

If you haven't yet heard about or seen it, San Francisco's world-renowned Exploratorium science museum has now opened Helix, a mini-Exploratorium in downtown Los Altos! A collaboration between Exploratorium and Passerelle, Helix offers exhibits, programming, retail, and an invitation for all ages to be amazed by science. Read more about Passerelle's involvement with Helix here.

At the grand opening on Friday December 13th and running through that weekend, a stunning and world-class sound-and-light art installation was on display in the front and rear windows of Helix for those lucky enough to stop by during those three evenings. A collaboration between Robert Bose of Balloon Chain, John Taylor of LumiGeek, and acclaimed vocalist Leah Siegel  from Brooklyn, the installation consisted of a grid of large white helium-filled balloons with both LED and sound sensors inside each one. As Leah sang into a sound board that harmonized and distorted her voice into beautiful abstract sounds, the LED lights in the balloons changed color to reflect her varying tones and volume. It was mesmerizing. Leah sings in both Firehorse and a new project Leisure Cruise, and the Balloon Chain is a regular and beloved feature at Burning Man.

'Tis the Season

In preparation for the Holiday Season, the Los Altos Village Association wanted to transform its classic emblem into an etched wood Christmas ornament and asked us to help with the design. Katie was able to manipulate the logo on the computer and then transform the concept into a tangible Holiday keepsake. 

During the 11th Annual Holiday Stroll on November 8th, the Christmas ornament was handed out as a holiday gift from the Los Altos Village Association. As you ponder your year end charitable donations, please keep LAVA in mind. This wonderful organization is responsible for many Los Altos staple events such as the Holiday Stroll, the Christmas Tree Lighting, the Halloween Spooktacular, the East Egg Hunt, and the Outdoor Movie Nights. If you feel that our town wouldn't be as special without them, then please consider making a tax-free donation to the Los Altos Village Fund. Visit their website and click the orange box!

If you are interested in the holiday ornament you can pick one up during the downtown carriage rides, scheduled Dec. 13-15, 20-23 and 26. Or contact LAVA directly: info@downtownlosaltos.org

The entire exhibition is free and open to the public. Hours vary by location: the three primary indoor galleries will be open Wednesday through Sunday 10am to 6pm, and the outdoor locations are of course viewable at any time. The exhibit located inside the Costume Bank will be viewable Mon, Thurs, and Fri noon-5pm, Sat 11am-5pm, and Sun 11am-4pm.

Be sure not to miss Project Los Altos' Opening Night celebration that coincides with the Los Altos Village Association's Holiday Stroll  on Friday, November 8th.

Bubble Man Visits State Street Green!

On Wednesday July 24 Mike the Bubble Man paid a visit to the State Street Green where about sixty people attended the event. The Green swarmed with excitement as Mike demonstrated how his various homemade bubble wands created all types of bubbles. Children quickly picked their favorite types and shouted out requests for different shapes and sizes. We were even treated to the most difficult trick: a bubble within a bubble. Every face in the crowd had a smile on it. Be sure to come check him out AGAIN next week on WEDNESDAY JULY 31 when he returns for more bubble fun!

 

Casting Call: Seeking Kids to Discuss the Future for SFMOMA

Do you have or know parents who have kids ages 8-12 who might like to be interviewed for a SFMOMA video art piece to be displayed in downtown Los Altos Nov-Mar? If so, please read on!

As part of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Project Los Altos: SFMOMA In Silicon Valley (November 9th 2013 thru March 2nd 2014), film director and artist Mike Mills will be interviewing children (ages 8-12) from Silicon Valley whose parents work in the tech industry for a video about the future. We are hoping to include children whose parents work at all levels in the industry to learn their unique perspective on the future. The video will be part of an installation by Mills on the past, present and future of Los Altos and the Silicon Valley.

The interviews will take thirty minutes to an hour and will be filmed in Los Altos in early September. Parents are asked to be present at the time of the interview but will not be interviewed. Pamela Kaplan Casting will be reaching out to the community and conducting the initial interviews this summer.  

Mike Mills is a noted artist, designer and filmmaker. He has done a series of shorts on the influence of place on identity, and he has presented works which feature key historical moments which shape collective identity.This will be the first time he presents an installation combining these interests. He has exhibited his work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, The Yerba Buena Center For the Arts in San Francisco, the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. As a designer, he’s worked for Mark Jacobs, The Beastie Boys, and Air. His feature films have won awards at Sundance, SXSW, Toronto, and the Berlin film festivals. His last film, Beginners, won an Oscar in 2012.

More on the exhibition:

Occupying indoor and outdoor locations throughout the downtown area, Project Los Altos will feature newly commissioned artist projects by Spencer Finch, Christian Jankowski, Chris Johanson, Mike Mills, Katerina Šedá, Alec Soth, and Jessica Stockholder that respond to the history and culture of this former agricultural area, the local residents, and the sites themselves. These new works are joined by documentation of performance works by artist Charles Garoian's students at Los Altos High School from 1969 to 1985, and Jeremy Blake's opulent Winchester trilogy (2002-2004), from the SFMOMA collection, inspired by the eccentric South Bay mansion built by Sarah Winchester. 

Project Los Altos: SFMOMA in Silicon Valley is organized by SFMOMA in collaboration with the City of Los Altos. The lead sponsor of this exhibition is Passerelle Investment Company.Major support is provided by Randi and Bob Fisher.

Come check out the State Street Green!

Yesterday, July 18, a green carpet was unrolled on State Street between First and Second Streets in downtown Los Altos to create the State Street Greenand it was a glorious sightWhat a perception shift, to see what was once asphalt and parked cars morph into an inviting and surprisingly shady green space! By this weekend, lawn chairs will be dotting the green and plants from the Los Altos Nursery will be adorning the chalkboard-and-magnet-walled orange planter boxes at each end of the Green. A big thank you to the Furuichi family for loaning the plants, to Pete Moffat Construction for building the planter boxes, to the H&H Company for loaning the chairs and Imagination Playground blocks, and most of all to Kathy Kleinbaum, Tuck Younis, Marcia Somers, and the rest of the staff at the City of Los Altos for approving and orchestrating this wonderful temporary pop-up park!
