I’m loving these promotional videos by Pacific Standard Time and the Getty Trust celebrating the people, art and architecture of Los Angeles. If you find yourself in the city this spring and summer, don’t miss Pacific Standard Time presents: Modern Architecture in L.A, an initiative by the Getty Trust that examines the city’s greatest post-World War II contribution: modern architecture. This initiative comprises of 11 exhibitions held at various museums in and around the Los Angeles area including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); the Hammer Museum; The Getty Museum; the Design and Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara among others.
"A lot of people think L.A. is just eyesore after eyesore, full of mini-malls, palm trees and billboards. So what, they don’t know the L.A. I know," says Ice Cube in this video for the groundbreaking exhibition Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., 1945-1980, the precursor for this Modern Architecture in L.A. initiative.
