Who Loves L.A.? Go Before Sunday to See Debroah Sussman

HOLLYWOOD - For those who remember growing up in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California in the 1970s and 80s may remember the bold colors that lined Zody's, Standard Shoe Stores, J. Magnin, brochures for LACMA and the iconic designs of the 1984 L.A. Olympics, well, that was the work of one Deborah Sussman.

Now, with the help of a Kickstarter campaign, the Woodbury University run WUHO Gallery on Hollywood Boulevard presents, “Deborah Sussman Loves Los Angeles,” which collects the 82-year-old designer’s work from 1953 to 1984.

During that time and beyond driving around Southern California you probably have encounter Ms. Sussman's work.

As The New York Times says, "Part of the goal of the exhibition was to bring the designer’s work into the Pinterest age, said the architect and Woodbury University professor Barbara Bestor, one of the exhibition’s curators."

The influence of Ms. Sussman's work is evident with the design of the 2012 London Olympics.

For those who love L.A. and remember those unique colors from their L.A. childhood journeys this is something not to be missed.

This is the last weekend to view the work of Ms. Sussman, and it is highly recommended you go!

Runs now through Sunday, open 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.
