In Santa Monica…
At Bergamot Station, the Santa Monica Museum of Art (SMMoA) presents the opening Reception for “Yutaka Sone & Benjamin Weissman: What Every Snowflake Knows in Its Heart.” Celebrate this exhilarating collaboration, meet the artists, and enjoy drinks and eats from SMMoA and Dogtown Dogs.
√Yutaka Sone, known for his masterful sculptures of architectural and natural landscapes, and Benjamin Weissman, a prolific writer and visual artist, initially met atop Mammoth Mountain at the suggestion of their colleague, Paul McCarthy.

Since that first meeting, they have crafted a shared mythology based on their mutual passion for snow and related subjects—skiing, forests and mountains, athletics, alter-egos, and mischief. For What Every Snowflake Knows in Its Heart, Sone and Weissman have built a monumental, animatronic ski mountain, complete with roving chair lifts and whimsical skiing characters.
