Free admission to SoCal Museums: Pacific Standard Time closes

The six-month long celebration of Los Angeles' time and place in art history known as "Pacific Standard Time" draws to a close today with over a dozen museums offering free admission. Pacific Standard Time was an unprecedented effort of over 60 museums from across Southern California to recognize Los Angeles' contributions to, and influence on the world of art.

Concentrating on the era of 1945-1980 (considered the birth of the L.A. art scene), PST highlighted significant works, artists, styles and movements which inspired the art produced here in L.A. and around the globe. The exhibits were as diverse as the city itself, including everything from architecture, to sculptures, to street art to music.

While the event officially ends today, many of the exhibits will still be available for patrons to view after Pacific Standard Time. For a complete list of all the participating museums offering free admission today, visit the official Pacific Standard Time website.

Additionally (and fortunately!) for museum and art lovers, and all Angelenos, the city-wide "Discover the Arts" promotion continues through the month of April with all kinds of great deals and discounts on admission and events in Los Angeles related to the arts.
