After six months, 68 major museum exhibitions and 125 gallery exhibits all over Los Angeles, “Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980,” the Getty Foundation’s all-encompassing homage to the Southern California arts scene, is drawing to a close. For those who have yet to peruse the initiative’s substantial offerings, this Saturday (between 11 A.M. and 8 P.M.), LACMA and 18 other museums are hosting an admission-free day. Visitors can explore exhibits featuring everything from the Abject Expressionists at the Pasadena Museum of California Art to the evolution of the Eames living room at the Eames House Foundation.
In conjunction with this event, the L.A.-based arts organization ForYourArt is presenting “The Catalogue Show,” a one-day exhibit of the over 40 event catalogues and publications that arose from “Pacific Standard Time,” in a display that will map the research and ideas that have arisen from the citywide collaboration. At the end of the day, the exhibit will become a historic keepsake: One attendee will win the entire collection in a raffle. 6020 Wilshire Blvd.; foryourart.com; pacificstandardtime.org.
