PACIFIC STANDARD TIME, the giant So-Cal-wide art event ten years in the making that celebrates the birth of California’s art scene, ticks on TODAY with free admission to art museums and venues, some of which are only a stones throw away from the Hancock Park/Larchmont area.
Go to http://www.pacificstandardtime.org for a fantastic, visual smorgasbord of a site that lets you sort through the multitude of options to visit by: institution; theme (ie: design and architecture, or painting and sculpture); location (Hollywood and Wilshire) and date. Drop into A+D Architecture and Design Museum on Wilshire to explore the Eames Designs: The Guest Host Relationship , or the Craft and Folk Art Museum for their exhibit the Golden State and Craft: 1960-1985. LACMA has a number of interesting exhibitions including California Design: 1930-1965 and an East-LA conceptual art exhibit Asco: Elite of the Obscure. This is why we live in Los Angeles – to be in the midst of all that’s going on – and today to enjoy it for free!
