The year was 1978, and in the Nordstrom catalog you could find photos of adidas athletic shoes to wear while serving straight aces and Nikes for getting your Prefontaine on. We still offer shoes that look pretty much the same–and in some cases literally the same–because some designs are classic.

Culture Map is everywhere Nordstrom is, plotting out the best in arts, events and happenings.

A week and some change remain of Vienna-based artist Markus Schinwald’s first major American museum commission, which is on display at CCA in conjunction with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. And which is all about space, and invading it.

Schinwald is a painter who is a sculptor who is a video artist who once studied fashion design. His most iconic paintings are actually delicately altered classical, antique auction-house pieces and his sculpture generally involves denatured appendages from handsome Chippendale tables. The invaded CCA space combines both, and allows visitors the opportunity to stop time. Or at least pause it. And perhaps—perhaps—leave behind one’s bodily form too.

Is it just us, or is this precisely the kind of architectural, visual interlude that might make the difference between a harried holiday season and a placid one? If you’re in the Bay Area, you have until Saturday, December 13 to find out.

See upcoming events at Nordstrom San Francisco Centre; for events at a Nordstrom near you, see our Stores & Events pages.

The IG bio for photographer A.J. Ragasa highlights a holy trinity of women, whiskey and menswear–which, OK, no complaints there. But we also find his photographic compositions geometrically intriguing, his portraits alluring and in general we appreciate his view of the world—for instance, his view of the headquarters and showroom of iconic outdoor Seattle-based brand Filson.

Check out the images here and get Ragasa’s take on the brand–which has arced seamlessly from crafting garments and accessories fabled for holding up over multiple generations, to outfitting those who cavort in the city.

New! Poler X Nike SB

Personal style, in the world of Portland, OR—which, if you’ve been there, you know is almost exactly the same as it’s portrayed in the TV show Portlandia—means apparel that’s all at once tech-y and earth-y, at times willfully weird, and suitable for work, play, and frequent daytrips into the great outdoors. Get on their level with the Poler X Nike SB collection. That’s Poler, the adventure/style company from Portland, blended with Nike’s skateboarding/skate-culture SB division, which is headquartered in nearby Beaverton.

We agree with Herschel Supply Company that there is a virtue in being truly #wellpacked, and documenting it. Because at some point while adventuring you might need to play some cuts (shout out to Bluetooth deejays). Because you never know when you’re gonna need to Gift & Go. And because cold days are way better with a flask.

In this new series, we talk to artists and designers about their most personal works and the projects that are closest to their hearts.

How does an aspiring fashion photographer who shoots Santa photos at Nordstrom transition to award-winning fine art photographer in just five years? For Santa Fe–based Zoe Marieh Urness, the journey has been a storied one. Since April of this year, Urness, who is Tlingit and Cherokee, has been traveling the western United States, shooting the ceremonies, dances and regalia of Native Americans for her ambitious photo series, Native Americans: Keeping the Traditions Alive. Using her art to help preserve the traditions of indigenous people, she produces photos that serve to connect the old ways to the modern-day realities of the Native world.

The importance of passing on tradition through storytelling, dance and song is deeply ingrained in Native American life, and Urness has managed to not only participate in this sacred heritage in a stylish and contemporary manner, but through her diligent documentation is sharing the ways of those whom she honors with a wider audience. Gaining traction largely through word of mouth, the series has grown organically and exponentially as one subject leads Urness to the next, and what began as a solitary endeavor has blossomed into a communal effort, unconstrained by tribe or borders.

We spoke with Urness about Keeping the Traditions Alive to get a deeper sense of the adventures she’s encountered, as well as how this endeavor has impacted her personally.

We like the holidays around here. We really, really like the holidays. So as we get this week started, visions of canned cranberries and not-quite-traditional sing-alongs are doing the Running Man in our heads. Seriously, it’s a little distracting. Here’s what we’re looking forward to dragging out of the hall closet this weekend and plugging into the DVD player and more …

Lauren Ireland, Print Editorial Director: Music: Nick Drake’s Time of No Reply is quiet and soft—a gentle snowfall in musical form. Pinetop Seven’s Rigging the Toplights is eerie, beautiful, atmospheric; it’s just right for a hushed, wintry walk. And this sounds strange, but Black Sabbath’s eponymous album perfectly captures the winter landscape. It’s a gorgeous (if dark) cold-weather album. Books: I reread Donna Tartt’s The Secret History every winter. Its austere, mysterious atmosphere always gets me in a snowy mood. The Once and Future King is a warm, festive, fire-lit modern re-telling of the Arthurian legend. Movies: Edward Scissorhands is a spooky, quirky, wintry romance. For anyone who has seen enough of Love Actually. Finally, Scrooged. It’s exactly right for a humbug like me.
