The actor and playwright Jack Larson and film director and writer James Bridges were gentlemen of the old school–talented, creative, cultured, thoughtful, generous, and supportive of each other and of their friends. They found each other and made a life together in a different Hollywood era. Together they supported budding artists in the Los Angeles art scene from the early 1960s through the 1980s. On February 21, 2016, LAMA will offer a selection of fine art and design from their personal collection, in addition to the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Sturges Residence (1939), all of which will be sold to benefit the Bridges/Larson Foundation.
