Pacific Palisades Democratic Club will host a docent-led tour of Villa Aurora—a Palisades “hidden gem”—located at 520 Paseo Miramar on Thursday, December 7, beginning at 2:30 p.m.
“Support both the PaliDems and Villa Aurora by joining us for a tour of the historic arts and cultural center that you might have heard of but never seen—until now,” read an email about the event.
The tour is open to PPDC members and non-members, with a portion of ticket sales going to support the club and Villa Aurora.
“Villa Aurora is an artists’ residency and a venue for international cultural encounters in the former home of German-Jewish exiles Leon and Marta Feuchtwanger,” the email continued. “As an interdisciplinary residence, Villa Aurora carries the memories of the artists and intellectuals who found refuge in California during the Nazi era, and who at the time had significant influence on cultural life on the West Coast.”
The official tour will begin at 3 p.m. and run through 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 for PPDC members and $35 for those who are not members.
