Set Your Clocks: Pacific Standard Time Opening Soon!Author:Lindsey Shook
Anyone who has ever spent time in the city’s numerous museums and galleries knows that Los Angeles is chock-full of terrific modern art. But have you ever wondered how it got that way? From the pop art of Ed Ruscha to the conceptual pieces of John Baldessari to the radical postminimalist works of Bruce Nauman, LA artists have been at the forefront of some of the most important movements in art and design.
Pacific Standard Time— an unprecedented collaboration initiated by the Getty Foundation and comprising more than 60 museums and additional galleries throughout Southern California—will tell the story of the rise of the LA art scene from 1945 to 1980. Public and private institutions from San Diego to Santa Barbara will hold simultaneous exhibitions and encourage visitors to move from one museum to the next by offering free shuttle buses and downloadable tours for handheld devices. Oct. 2011–April 2012, pacificstandardtime.org.
