Experience SoCal’s blockbuster artistic age
For a city with hundreds of arts venues, Los Angeles has always been a bit sheepish about its local talent. No more: Starting now, the Getty Foundation is cosponsoring a blockbuster arts series focused on postwar southern California art.
You can experience the work via an image-filled interactive website that customizes your arts itinerary based on a fun pictorial quiz. Thus, you don't even have to know which shows you'll want to visit, because the logarithm recommends them based on your likes and dislikes.
Interiors buffs will flock to LACMA for "California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way," which includes the iconic Eames House's Pacific Palisades living room reassembled inside the museum. Photography fans will enjoy the J. Paul Getty Museum's "In Focus: Los Angeles 1945-1980," featuring greats such as Garry Winogrand and Man Ray.
