le monde entier est un théâtre

mondavi center
This is the Mondavi Center at UC Davis. It is a large performance space and venue, an impressive building on campus that often hosts superb world-class artists and musicians. While I have never been to a performance there, I have been to sketch a rehearsal there, for last year’s Dance Dance Davis event.I’ve sketched the outside before, from a similar angle to this, but this one was drawn last week after a meeting at the Buehler Alumni Center next door. I had my large Canson pad with me, so this was going to be a larger one, at about 7″x9″. I drew most of it on site and finished the colour at home. I was for the most part surrounded by a huge crowd of schoolkids who were on some sort of trip to the Mondavi and were waiting around for their school bus to bring them lunch. I like the Mondavi.

      Really? Good to know! I should do some research into the architects who have built on the UC Davis campus, would be good to see their other stuff.

    was wondering why this hadn’t appeared, after playing Mahler 2nd Resurrection symphony at the Mondavi recently – the whole thing is on Youtube
