  • Round-Up: Artist's 3-D crime, Darwin's library, why parking's a mess

    The ways in which parking spaces devour a city, LACMA director Michael Govan's defense of his museum's architectural plans and one of the awesome-est documentaries about L.A. — finally released on DVD! Also: pit bulls, lots of pit bulls (but not the...
  • Hey, readers: Tell me where to go

    Hey, readers: Tell me where to go
    Judging from reader emails, my 2003 Ford Mustang might be more popular than I am. The unofficial car of the Postcards From Florida column has received plenty of praise for its supporting role in road trips such as a recent excursion on the historic Fort...
  • Celebrate art on the Fourth

    Celebrate art on the Fourth
    Every day is an "art day," even the Fourth of July. There are several art happenings on Friday and through the holiday weekend. The Morse Museum (445 N. Park Ave., Winter Park) and the Winter Park Historical Museum (200 W. New England Ave.) are both...
  • Frank Gehry's Philly museum design takes on the "Rocky" steps

    Frank Gehry's Philly museum design takes on the "Rocky" steps
    Look at Frank Gehry's plan for the renovation and expansion of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and you'll see little of the Gehry we've all come to know. There are no billowing sheets of titanium, à la Guggenheim Bilbao or Walt Disney Concert Hall; no...
  • Peter Zumthor's L.A.-LACMA vision in need of update

    The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam does it. The Louvre does it — twice. The Sackler Museum at Harvard wanted to do it in the 1980s, but neighbors objected and its design was changed. Bridging a major street, as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art now...
  • Smells like ... a Westsider: All wet lawn and the sweat of a trophy wife

     Smells like ... a Westsider: All wet lawn and the sweat of a trophy wife
    Last Saturday I approached no fewer than 30 strangers and sniffed them. They sniffed me back. Some thought I smelled nice, though a few gagged. We were part of an "olfactory public artwork" at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, a one-day installation,...
  • LACMA's lovely show on Korea in a time of transformation

     LACMA's lovely show on Korea in a time of transformation
    How remarkable that a simple piece of undecorated, fired white clay can be a riveting work of art. Yet there it is, beckoning quietly from a vitrine near the start of "Treasures From Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910." The large...
  • Lucas museum: New hope for the lakefront or Darth Invader?

    Lucas museum: New hope for the lakefront or Darth Invader?
    Celebrity-starved Chicago is having so much fun with the museum that "Star Wars" creator George Lucas wants to build here that there is a danger of losing sight of some very basic issues: Will the museum enhance the city's lakefront or clutter it? Will...
  • 'Chicken men' once ruled roost in annual underground ritual

    In some Orlando circles, July 4 once meant more than patriotic celebrations of our nation's birth. It also marked the end of the cockfighting season. In 1948, the season's biggest tournament even made Time magazine, although "no word of it appeared in...
  • Lucas museum might be better than parking lots

     Lucas museum might be better than parking lots
    I went out to the lakefront on Thursday, to the spot where George Lucas wants to build his museum, prepared to be alarmed and appalled. My expectations were quickly met. Twenty-two dollars to park even if you're staying for only an hour? Appalling....
  • Datebook: Steve McQueen, Allora & Calzadilla and L.A.'s new gallery

    Datebook: Steve McQueen, Allora & Calzadilla and L.A.'s new gallery
    Artist-selected Internet videos, the debut performance of Allora & Calzadilla in L.A., video from artist and director Steve McQueen and artist books and cookies! It's a delicious week in L.A., with lots to do: Steve McQueen, "Drumroll," at MOCA...
