HISTORY OF THE PACIFIC STANDARD TIME INITIATIVE


Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty with arts organizations throughout Southern California. These collaborative programs focus the cultural community on a variety of topics and themes connected to the region.


The first program, Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, was an unprecedented collaboration of more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California coming together to celebrate the birth of the LA art scene. Between October 2011 and March 2012, each institution made its own contribution to this grand-scale story of artistic innovation and social change, told through the multitude of simultaneous exhibitions and programs on post-World War II art in Los Angeles.
