Over sixty cultural organizations across Southern California are teaming up in Pacific Standard Time to celebrate the emergence of the Los Angeles art scene and explore the role it has played in shaping the arts. Starting October, exhibitions and events will be held over the course of six months to recognize the major art movements in L.A. from 1945 to 1980. Among the topics addressed will be developments in post-minimalism, modernist architecture, Japanese American design, and more. Participating institutions include the Getty Museum, LACMA, UCLA and more than half a dozen university museums and programs, all of which will play a part in presenting the history of Southern California’s artistic trends.

Grand opening exhibit and inaugural fundraising event
On April 27th over 900 patrons were present to commemorate the opening of A+D’s permanent home on Los Angeles’ Museum Row at 6032 Wilshire Blvd. On hand were the 20/20 Foundation Group, a select assembly of 20 accomplished architects and 20 distinguished designers in LA who are a pivotal force in moving the museum forward in its development as a premier cultural institution. The $200,000 build out of the former furniture store was aided by several of the city’s finest contractors and suppliers who donated pro bono their expertise and services. A+D now has a 3,500 square foot main gallery, a 500 square foot gallery, along with offices and support space. Museum hours are Tues-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat and Sun 11am-5pm. Memberships are available for Individual ($50), Family ($75) and Student ($25).
Open international design competition deadline June 4th
The Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design proposes DINGBAT 2.0, an open, single-stage, international design competition, reconsidering Los Angeles’ ubiquitous Dingbat apartment building for the 21st century. All designers, architects, artists, engineers, students, and other interested parties are fully eligible for participation in this competition. This is an ideas competition that calls for the consideration of the Dingbat not only as a housing typology, but also for the impact of Dingbats on the urban fabric of residential neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Three different areas of Los Angeles will be considered for the competition: single-block neighborhoods in West Hollywood, Palms, and Santa Monica.
