2. Pacific Standard Time

Location: Various locations around Los Angeles

Dates: Ongoing through Spring 2012.

Perhaps listing Pacific Standard Time as a single exhibition is cheating. It is more an initiative, spurred by the Getty, forming an unprecedented collaboration between institutions in the greater Los Angeles area. Thanks to the collected exhibitions, we've seen Ice Cube talk about his love of the Eames. We can see Raymond Pettibon's work in full, terrifying glory. And, we can remember the craftsmanship of the great Sam Maloof.

In short, Pacific Standard Time brilliantly celebrates the artistic legacy of Southern California.
