    Alternative site for Lucas Museum could help stars align for everyone
    There's a better spot for the proposed Lucas Museum of Narrative Arts than the one that led to the much-derided "Mount Lucas" design and prompted Friends of the Parks on Thursday to file a lawsuit in federal court against the plan. This site would...
  • 'Constructing Worlds' exhibit at Barbican explores buildings as neighbors

    'Constructing Worlds' exhibit at Barbican explores buildings as neighbors
    Thirty years ago, the Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri complained that pictures of well-known buildings were often as conventional and flat as mediocre still-life paintings "but executed out of doors." Those images, he wrote, "remind me of...
  • Gehry's Louis Vuitton Foundation museum is a triumph, but to what end?

    Gehry's Louis Vuitton Foundation museum is a triumph, but to what end?
    The personal or private museum, built to hold the blue-chip paintings of a wealthy collector, is more of an American phenomenon than a European one. In Los Angeles alone we have the examples of the Getty, the Huntington and the Hammer to look to, with...

     Comprehensive 'Gehry' retrospective in Paris draws sociological blank

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

    At 50, Music Center's 'backward' orientation may see a turnaround
    If practice is what gets you to Carnegie Hall, as the saying goes, what gets you to the Music Center has always been a car. The performing arts complex, which will turn 50 next month, sits atop Bunker Hill in downtown Los Angeles like a late-modern,...
  • Dive into Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce

    Dive into Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce
    It goes without saying, but I'm obviously not cut out for special warfare. That was apparent before I even reached the front door of the National Navy SEAL Museum (navysealmuseum.org), an inspiring tribute to the history, skills and ongoing mission of...
  • Picasso exhibit at Dali's place is a must-see

    Picasso exhibit at Dali's place is a must-see
    I don't need additional incentive to visit The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, one of the must-see art attractions in Florida. So it's not surprising that I made the opening weekend of the new "Picasso/Dali, Dali/Picasso" exhibit, a display of more...

    Lucas Museum design an architectural mountain on city's lakefront
