This brilliant undead gentleman, Matt Goldman, will be joining us Saturday for $1/Minute — a speed-design fundraiser during Summer School, this weekend’s printmaking festival at Ace Hotel Palm Springs.
We’ve got a big weekend ahead — tomorrow night, Blackstrap Molasses plays our live music residency, Revolver, and Matt co-hosts School Night Los Angeles as printmaking workshops and gallery shows in the Clubhouse roll out Saturday and Sunday.
We knocked some bucks off rooms and spa treatments — take yourself on an art retreat. See you there.

Tim Biskup is joining us this weekend for Summer School — he’s rolling in as the sun sets Saturday night for a late-night gallery opening in the Clubhouse, premiering a new print, Crippling Faith #4. Tim’s offering the prints at a special Summer School-only rate at the premiere — each is part of a limited edition of 55 signed and numbered prints.
Come make your own prints all weekend with us — workshops are free to guests, rooms are 10% off, and School Night Los Angeles is curating bands and DJs by the pool and in the Amigo Room.

A piece from Kyle Durrie, of Power & Light Press in Portland, one of our visiting print artists for Summer School at Ace Palm Springs. She’s passing through town in the Type Truck.
Right now, I’m living in fantasyland, out on the road in a 1982 Chevy step van I converted into a letterpress print shop with a sign press from the mid-20th century and an 1873 Golding Official No. 3 tabletop platen press. I’m a few weeks into an eight month Type Truck tour (currently poaching internet in a parking lot in San Rafael) and loving it.

I’ve always been really interested in working with my hands. It’s such an amazing gift that we humans have - these two hands that can grasp and hold and touch and form. There are so many ways for us to access cheap and disposable facsimiles of actual experiences these days. I think people forget what we’re actually capable of, that we have these amazing things called hands that can, you know, MAKE stuff. Hand work is about empowerment, creativity and self-sufficiency.

I’ve traveled a fair amount with my partner’s band, and I really love the way that he travels — arriving in a new town, exploring, meeting people and sharing his music. It’s such a no-brainer for musicians — you just load your gear in a van and hit the road. I started thinking that it wouldn’t be so hard for me to do something similar with my printing. And so, Moveable Type was born…

Summer School workshops are free to guests and Swim Club members all weekend, July 23 & 24, and rooms are ten percent off. We’ve also got music all weekend by School Night Los Angeles, and a pop-up gallery and shop on Sunday night with guest art and featured workshop teachers.

We’re super excited about Summer School — a big design, music and art workshop weekend we’re throwing on July 23 & 24 at Ace Hotel Palm Springs. You can spend all weekend making art, learning to screenprint and blockprint, and letterpressing your $&%@ing heart out, for free. A handful of artists we admire from LA and Southern California are coming into town to set up camp in the Clubhouse for two afternoons full of workshops, and the Type Truck — a touring mobile letterpress installed in the back of a 1982 Chevy van — will be parked by the lobby all weekend. $1/Minute will be doing interactive speed design on Saturday afternoon and donating all proceeds to Adbusters.
School Night Los Angeles is curating bands and DJs by the pool and in the Amigo Room, and we’re finishing up Sunday night with a pop-up shop and gallery, Show & Tell, where we’ll be showcasing the art you’ve been making all weekend and some prints by visiting artists. Rooms are 10% off with rate code SCHOOLNIGHT, and we’ve got drink specials and 15% off on some of our favorite treatments at the Feel Good Spa all weekend, too.
See the calendar for more info — we’ll see you by the pool next weekend with ink-stained fingertips and an adult chocolate milk.
Keep an eye out for artist interviews over the next week or so, and learn more about your teachers.
