Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans @MOCA
This installation of Warhol's 32 soup-can paintings opens on the 49th anniversary of the original exhibition of the paintings at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles--Andy Warhol's first solo exhibition — and pays tribute to the significant role played by the gallery in the development of postwar L.A. art and also to its revered director Irving Blum.

Wilshire Blvd. History Slideshow
LAPL Photo Friends presents a free virtual stroll down 1970s Wilshire Boulevard, as captured on Kodachrome slides by Annie Laskey and her mom Marlene. Over a dozen afternoons in 1978 and 1979, Marlene and Annie walked the entire length of Wilshire Boulevard from downtown to the ocean. Marlene took notes; Annie took pictures. The result was over 1,000 Kodachrome slides documenting L.A.'s iconic street from its great landmarks to its empty lots. Mark Taper Auditorium, Central Library. 2-3 p.m. (Free).
