Marc Chevalier presents a talk on James Oviatt at the LAVA Sunday Salon, March 2013


On the last Sunday of each month , LAVA welcomes interested individuals to gather in downtown Los Angeles (noon-2pm), for a loosely structured conversational Salon featuring short presentations and opportunities to meet and connect with one another.

At the March 2013 Salon, Oviatt Building scholar Marc Chevalier gave a lecture with accompanying slide show on the life and times of James Oviatt. Topics include Oviatt’s eponymous building, his contributions to the Art Deco in Los Angeles, his fashionable haberdashery Alexander & Oviatt, myths, legends and the even more fascinating reality.
