The Heads of State are a pack of three art-savvy wolves illustrating and designing their asses off in Philadelphia. Their poetic use of iconography, touch of colorblindness, love of facial hair and wholesome humor lands them clients as gargantuan as Nike and as petite as Wondermade Marshmallows in Orlando, Florida. Dusty, Jason and Woody will be talking October 21 at RE:DESIGN/Inspire in LA about how they stay inspired during what can be a rigorous creative process for a small team. The conference is a chance to peer into the creative worlds of nearly two dozen thinkers, makers and shakers including Noreen Morioka, former president of AIGA Los Angeles, and Jeff Castelaz, president of Elektra Records — get in on it.

Astrid Kircherr was out with some friends in her native Hamburg one night in 1960 when they stepped into the Kaiserkeller and came face to face with rock n’ roll personified. In the next four years Kircherr documented the transformation of the original line-up of the Beatles from five to the Fab Four, from cherub-faced rockabilly youth to the centerpiece of probably the most viral explosion of global youth culture ever seen. The pictures she took in those days — before the Beatles were the Beatles — might as well be from a different world. In a way they are from a different world, though one whose orbit paralleled ours before “She Loves You” awakened some dormant spirit in the teenage mass and a new course put some drift between us. The Early Beatles Collection, including rarely seen photos taken by Kircherr between 1960-1964, opened today at the Leica Gallery Los Angeles and is up for a bit, stop by if you’re in the neighborhood.

Catch a retrospective of the last five decades of work by James Turrell at LACMA through April 2014 — born in LA 70 years ago, Mr. Turrell has been negotiating with light and space on behalf of humankind and carving light into shadowy corners for the better part of a century.
