Or maybe it's the willingness of the city's Department of Cultural Affairs to get involved as a sponsor. While a hundred or so Los Angeles writers, artists and speakers — including Mayor Villaraigosa — are still whooping it up in Guadalajara, word comes via release that L.A. will also be the guest of honor at ARCOMadrid in February. Some 50+ artists will be represented in Spain, among them David Hockney, John Baldessari and Edward Kienholz. Seventeen local galleries will take part in Panorama: Los Angeles.
