2011 will be a huge year for art in L.A.

Billyalbengston If you have your finger on the pulse of Los Angeles' art world, you are probably aware of surging interest in the history of the local art scene. And if you read my Sunday Calendar story, "Los Angeles artists have quite a past," and today's follow-up, "Getty Foundation helps explore L.A.'s post-WWII arts," you know that a bonanza of exhibitions is coming up in 2011, thanks to "Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980," a 6-year-old initiative of the Getty Foundation and the Getty Research Institute.

The J. Paul Getty Museum and 15 other arts institutions will present an unprecedented sweep of historical insights in a collaborative project opening in October 2011.
