LAO video: Inside peek at LACMA's 'California Design'


Sunday is free at the museums taking part in the Pacific Standard Time extravaganza. Included is LACMA's hot new exhibition, California Design 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way, the first show of its kind to celebrate the midcentury modern style in California art, design, architecture and more. The LA Observed video takes a walk around inside the exhibition, which includes the living room from the home of designers Charles and Ray Eames, plus works by Richard Neutra, R.M. Schindler and others. Among the pieces on display is the Studebaker Avanti owned by Dick Van Dyke, original Ken and Barbie dolls, a display table from Bullock's Wilshire and an Oscar statuette designed by Cedric Gibbons.

Warms my heart: Nice to see the new edition of Wilshire Boulevard: Grand Concourse of Los Angeles in the California Design shop at the museum.
