Pacific Standard Time:

UC San Diego Artists Featured in a Celebration of Southern California Art

Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA, 1945-1980, a celebration and revitalization of Southern California art and the art scene, marks the nation’s largest creative alliance. Spearheaded by the J. Paul Getty Trust, the festival is a “collaboration of 60 cultural institutions and more than 1,350 artists,” stretching from San Diego to Santa Barbara. The Getty has contributed more than $10 million in grants towards relevant events and exhibitions.

A number of faculty members and alumni of UC San Diego’s visual arts department are featured in this unprecedented production.
