     How the Music Center broke new ground for major arts institutions
    First came the national anthem played by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, then a resplendent fanfare by Richard Strauss. But when 22 brass players and a pair of timpanists proclaimed the opening of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Dec. 6, 1964, that...

    Weekend preview: Where the girls are
    One of the most painful civic embarrassments in Fort Lauderdale’s 103-year history — rivaled only by the wood-shrouded plot on Las Olas where the humble and useful Hyde Park Market gave its life for a developer’s pipe dream —...

    Bars and clubs near the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando
    The city's skyline will never be the same — and neither will your date-night options — as the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts premieres this month in Orlando. A movie and a nightcap? Instead of that movie, how about ballet,...

    Jane Byrne's lasting impact on culture in Chicago
    As anyone who watched her before, during and after her four tumultuous years as mayor of the city of Chicago would know, Jane Byrne was great theater: unpredictable, comic, dramatic. But behind that show, she also displayed a deep appreciation for the...

    To remain relevant, Music Center aims to reflect all of Los Angeles

    Arts just as crucial as math and science, say experts
    Science, Technology, Engineering and Math -- known collectively as STEM -- has been the buzz phrase for educators for some time. But, with many school districts eliminating art, music and other humanities classes, there has been a recent push by educators...
  • R. Crumb reflects on 'The Complete Zap Comix'

    R. Crumb reflects on 'The Complete Zap Comix'
    Culturally, physically, scatologically — it's hard to overstate "The Complete Zap Comix." Let's start with the thing itself: If I threw it at your head, and landed a solid strike, I might end you. It weighs 20 pounds, stands more than a foot...
  • What it's like to be a nude art model

    What it's like to be a nude art model
    Consider the naked man, standing on a small platform in Bottle & Bottega, a cozy and handsome BYOB painting studio in the Lakeview neighborhood. It is 7 p.m. on a Friday and there are 42 sets of eyes fixed on the naked man, the eyes of women who have...

    At 50, Music Center's 'backward' orientation may see a turnaround
