Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A.

Posted on by Lauren M

It's been all over the web this past weekend, but we're excited about Pacific Standard Time and this video is a great intro to an exhibit we hope to see soon- so thought we might as well share it here... again. If you haven't already, check out the video below, 'Ice Cube Celebrates the Eames' or watch it here on Pacific Standard Time's YouTube channel.

If you're in the area, now is a great time to learn about the development of art and architecture in Southern California- Pacific Standard Time is a result of the collaborative efforts of numerous regional cultural and arts institutions and galleries, along with the Getty, and includes dozens of exhibits and events focused on art in Los Angeles. In fact, there are a couple of exhibits featuring the work of Charles and Ray Eames, including Indoor Ecologies: The Evolution of the Eames House Living Room from the Eames Foundation and Eames Designs: The Guest-Host Relationship, a visual exploration of the 'connection between the designers' classic work, process and philosophy', which can be viewed at A+D Museum through January 16th. 


A couple of other noteworthy exhibits include Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and Sculpture, 1950 - 1970, at the Getty Center, and Sympathetic Seeing: Esther McCoy and the Heart of American Modernist Architecture and Design at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House.

Of course, there are so many galleries to visit and shows to see, it's recommended to stop by the Pacific Standard Time website, where you can save specific exhibits to your profile, receive custom recommendations, and explore all the topics and works on display.

We'll be sure to write a follow-up post when we get the chance to visit at least a few exhibits in this unprecendented celebration of Los Angeles art, culture and architecture from 1945 to 1980. Feel free to comment if you've had the opportunity to see any of them- we'd love to hear what you think!
