California Art Thats Shallow?!

LBMA kicks LACMAs ass! Kind of!

*Yup. Peter Alexander invented the Light & Space movement while repairing a surfboard. At least, that's what I've heard. I wasn't born yet.

**LACMA does, however, have two specialty hot rods (one of Jetsons-like plexiglass and one mirrored and beaded as though it's Cher at the Oscars) from the master, Big Daddy Roth, that are the coolest things I've ever seen—ever. Long Beach should definitely get a couple. That would be cool.

"Made in California: Art, Image and Identity, 1900-2000" at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles (323) 857-6000; Through Feb. 25; "Rooms With a View" at Long Beach Museum of Art, 2300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, (562) 439-2119. Thru April 8.
