Through the Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, more than sixty cultural organizations across Southern California joined together in 2011 to celebrate the birth of the Los Angeles art scene. Given the success of this unprecedented collaboration, the Getty and its partners have committed to a second major offering in September 2017 called Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, focused on Los Angeles and Latin America. In the interim, in 2013, a smaller scale program Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. explored the built heritage of our region.
