Free Museum Day As Pacific Standard Time Comes to an End

Pacific Standard Time

Pacific Standard Time, the region-wide celebration of L.A. post-war art, is already drawing to a close -- but before the event officially ends, 20 museums, galleries and collections will open their doors for free to visitors on Saturday, March 31. Participating museums include LACMA. Here's the list:

American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA)
Art, Design & Architecture Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara
California African American Museum (CAAM)
Chinese American Museum
Eames House Foundation
Fisher Museum of Art, University of Southern California
The J. Paul Getty Museum
The GRAMMY Museum
LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division)
Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)
Mingei International Museum
ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives (West Adams)
ONE Archives Gallery & Museum (West Hollywood)
Pacific Asia Museum
Palm Springs Art Museum
Pasadena Museum of California Art
Pomona College Museum of Art
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
Scripps College, Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery

We hit several Pacific Standard Time exhibits at LACMA and MOCA, among other spots. And yet... I feel like we never got a good handle on such a sprawling event. And I don't know if it took the city by storm like promised. What do you think? Was Pacific Standard Time a big success? Did anything wow you? Or was it too spread out to get your arms around?
