Pacific Standard Time

This fall, Los Angeles cultural institutions are participating in a huge collaboration of exhibits and specific events dedicated to LA arts and artists from 1945 to 1980 called Pacific Standard Time. If you live in the LA area, now is a great time to visit some museums and take part in this event. There's even free admission to a lot of the venues on October 2nd, and many museums have their own free day once a month. The Los Angeles Times has an online guide with reviews and articles about Pacific Standard Time shows.

Sam Maloof chair, 1984.

I'm planning to visit the Huntington next week to see The House that Sam Built: Sam Maloof and Art in the Pomona Valley, 1945–1985 and am really interested in the Beatrice Wood exhibition at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. I met Beatrice Wood about twenty years ago, as she lived in Ojai and I portrayed her, sari and all, one year in the Ojai Fourth of July parade.

If you get to see one of these shows, come back and comment and let us know what you thought!
