July 2, 2010 |  3:55 pm


[Updated at 11:48 a.m.: An earlier version of the post incorrectly said that the service would be open to the public. It will be a private service.]

A private memorial service for artist Craig Kauffman will held on July 21 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, 250 S. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, according to Jay Belloli, who organized a show of Kauffman's work in 2008 at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena.

Kauffman, known for his bubble-like plastic wall pieces, died May 9 at 78.
