DC's political elite put aside their party differences Wednesday to--you guessed it--party down at the Ritz Carlton for the 34th Annual Ambassadors Ball. The yearly event, which welcomes newly-assigned ambassadors and their families to the city, also serves as a National MS Society fundraiser. Ticket sales, donations, and a silent auction ultimately raised more than $850,000 for the charity. More»

We've never made a secret of our abiding love for charity galas and parties for a cause, but even we can admit that some causes are more worthy than others. Sure, that foundation for cross-eyed Golden Retrievers in Santa Monica is making a positive difference or whatever, but there's really no comparison to a organization that helps real human beings in distress, right here in Los Angeles.

I drove out to Orient Point the other day, and though it took a while, the scenery was so beautiful that I scarcely noticed. Vineyard after vineyard after Victorian farmhouse after farm stand... we're talking miles of bucolic perfection. The north fork isn't understated elegance or overstated wealth the way the south fork is; it actually reminds be a lot of the old seaport towns that dot Massachusetts' north shore.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
