Step into the 1800’s with the exclusive Alienist Exhibition at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills starting January 13th

Celebrate the new series premiering January 22nd on TNT with ‘The Alienist: From Sketchbook to Screen Exhibit’ that will feature costumes, photography, art pieces and more from the limited series. The exclusive Los Angeles display opens to the public on Saturday, January 13, 2018. Michael Kaplan the award winning costume designer who you ‘know’ from the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Blade Runner, Fight Club and Flashdance is taking us to the past from the Caleb Carr novel.

“Michael Kaplan is a spectacular costume designer and true master of his craft. As he’s done so brilliantly in features, Michael enriched the world of The Alienist with his unique vision and meticulous attention to detail,” said Michael Engleman, TNT’s EVP of Marketing and Brand Innovation. “We’ve been fortunate benefactors of his stunning work and are delighted to showcase it at the Paley Center.”

The inspiration behind The Alienist exhibit gives a glimpse of the abstracted architectural and environmental features that are represented throughout the scenography of the series filmed in eastern Europe. The concept focuses those themes on one dominant and dramatic idea – suspension – to showcase the Gilded Age costumes and books in a unique and intriguing way.

The Alienist will take visitors through the world of 1896 New York, a place where mystery lies beneath a glittering surface,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “It’s an honor to present this incredible exhibit that captures the mood of TNT’s highly anticipated new series.”

The Alienist is a psychological thriller set in the late 1800’s exploring the fledgling use of mental pathologists as they track the first known ritualist killer muddling young boys in New York City during the ‘Golden Age’. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl, Rush), a brilliant and obsessive “Alienist”, John Moore (Luke Evans) and Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning) are the trio out to unmask the fiend and prove the effectiveness of their research despite the police and powerful people who want to keep the evil quiet. The new series based on the award winning novel by Caleb Carr was filmed in Budapest, Hungary. The series was co-produced by Paramount Television and Turner’s Studio T. BAFTA-nominee Jakob Verbruggen (Black Mirror) serves as director and executive producer along with Emmy® winner Cary Fukunaga (True Detective), Academy Award® winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), Academy Award® nominees Hossein Amini (Drive) and E. Max Frye (Foxcatcher), Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Rosalie Swedlin, along with Chris Symes. Serving as co-executive producers on the series are Marshall Persinger (Rectify) and Jamie Payne (The Driver).

The Paley Center exhibit is free and open to the public that is part of an ongoing exhibit showcasing the artistry of the entertainment field. Guests are able to see behind the scenes of television series creative process.

 

The exhibit is free and open to the public on January 13, 2018, and will run through March 25, 2018, at the Paley Center’s Beverly Hills location (465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210).

KNEAD & CO. pasta bar + market @ Grand Central Market

Los Angeles, CA 90013
Food Forward-Food Forward rescues fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste, connecting this abundance with people in need, and inspiring others to do the same.
HoneyLove – HoneyLove is a Los Angeles based non-profit conservation organization with a mission to protect the honeybees by educating our communities and inspiring new urban beekeepers.
Muir Ranch Pasadena – In 2011, a dedicated team of volunteer teachers and students began converting 1.5 acres of the John Muir High School campus into an urban farm. Muir Ranch grows a variety of flowers, vegetables and fruit that are included in weekly CSA boxes as well as school cafeteria lunches. Students can complete community service or internship graduation requirements by enrolling in classes at the Ranch. Muir Ranch also provides paid internships to students, which are funded by private donations, special events, farmer’s market sales, and subscriptions to the produce box program (CSA).
Hollywood Orchard– To better neighborhood quality of life by operating a community orchard that is a teaching model for sustainability through its workshops on growing fruit locally, and sharing the food in open-air events held in the Beachwood Canyon community, outreach communities, and food-charity organizations.
FoLAR Is a non-profit organization founded in 1986, whose mission is to protect and restore the natural and historic heritage of the Los Angeles River and its riparian habitat through inclusive planning, education and wise stewardship. Once home to steelhead and grizzlies, the Los Angeles River meandered through wetlands, marshes, willow, alder and sycamore, providing desperately needed water for the region. Now running over 50 miles long – from the suburbs of the San Fernando Valley to the ocean in Long Beach – the Los Angeles River flows through 14 cities and countless neighborhoods. When the Army Corps of Engineers initiated a flood control project in the late 1930s, they began the process of paving 80% of the River, creating the world’s largest storm drain. Over the ensuing decades, the River that had been the sole water supply for the City of Los Angeles before the Los Angeles Aqueduct was completed in 1913 almost disappeared from public consciousness. With the cement came a perceptual shift: the River no longer existed. Instead, it was a “flood control channel,” a no-man’s land, surrounded by fences and signs.
Green Wish – is a grassroots, non-profit organization that funds local, green organizations through customers’ small donations at local retailers. Put simply: We’re a charity that helps fund the green projects in your neighborhood!
Green Wish was founded in 2009 by actor/producer Raphael Sbarge, after the birth of his first child, “I was struck by how alive I suddenly felt as a father,” he explained. “Conversely, I also felt remarkably vulnerable and defenseless to protect this little person’s journey in a world as vast and complex as ours. I had to ask, ‘What can we do to contribute in any small way to leave the world a better place than when we found it?'”
The answer: Green Wish – we help people to support a movement – not just one organization, but multiple ones. When you donate to Green Wish, you’re actually helping numerous environmental groups, right in your own community.
Green Wish partners with local retailers, which place our donation cards right at their cash registers. Customers can “buy” and add Green Wish donations on to their purchase at the retailer.
These donations are collected by local Green Wish chapters and distributed regularly to area organizations that have been carefully vetted. The board of directors in each chapter evaluates and selects deserving organizations with track records of good work across the green spectrum, focusing on air, water, earth and environmental education. * Ninety cents of every dollar* goes to your local green groups.
We started in Los Angeles with a chapter supporting nine organizations in Southern California. We are spreading across the country with the ultimate goal to start Green Wish chapters across the country, all supporting groups in their communities.
