The worlds of art and food are colliding once again under the umbrella of the Pacific Standard Time collaborative of exhibits with a series of upcoming food truck meet ups. Menu items on the popular mobile eateries will be inspired by the artwork seen in various museums.

The events are on successive Saturdays from and it gets going this weekend.

Here's what truck will be where on what days:

  • On February 18, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will host the following food trucks: Aunties Fry Bread, No Tomatoes, Coolhaus, Lobsta Truck, and Kings Corner BBQ. Menu items will be inspired by LACMA's exhibit California Design, 1930-1965: "Living in a Modern Way." 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • On February 25, the Santa Monica Museum of Art in Bergamot Station will host Global Soul, Pnut Butter Truck, Tailgate Truck, Smokin Willies Truck and Asian Cravings along Michigan Avenue. Dishes will be inspired by SMMOA's exhibit "Beatrice Wood: Career Woman-Drawings, Paintings, Vessels, and Objects." 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • On March 3, the Pasadena Museum of California Art will host: Border Grill, Casablanca Truck, Flat Iron Truck, Gourmet Genie and Go Chew. Dishes will be inspired by PMCA's exhibit "L.A. Raw: Abject Expressionism in Los Angeles, 1945-1980, From Rico Lebrun to Paul McCarthy." (We've seen this exhibit, and caution it's not for kids!) Noon to 4 p.m.
