Shows & Exhibitions
These three on-going exhibitions are for those lucky enough to be in Southern California soon. They are all part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, a joint effort of over 60 cultural institutions to document the Southern California art, craft and design scene. San Diego’s Mingei International Museum has a survey of SD crafts people starting in the 1940’s and continuing through the 1970s: San Diego’s Craft Revolution-From Post-War Modern to California Design. This will end on April 15, 2012.
Presented by Craft in America and the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM), Golden State of Craft: California 1960 – 1985. This show ends very soon, January 8th, so get some tickets.
The last show is presented by The American Museum of Ceramic Art: Common Ground: Ceramics in Southern California 1945–1975 and is focused on ceramics. It is centered around an influential artist, art administrator, and designer—Millard Sheets (1907-1989). This show is running until March 31st, 2012.
