OC ART: If ever there were a weekend to check out what Orange County's art museums have to offer, this is it (thanks to Pacific Standard Time). There's a bus departing from South Coast Plaza at Macy's very shortly (at 10:30am) to tour five art institutions, but you can check out some of the stops on your own where admission will be free or reduced. At 11am, there will be a free walk-through at the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University. At 12pm, there will be a half-price walk-through the Laguna Art Museum. At 1:30pm, Ilene Segalove will talk and Susan Mogula will perform at the Orange County Museum of Art, where admission is half price. At 3pm, the tour will stop at "The Radicalization of a 50's Housewife" at University Art Gallery at UC Irvine (admission is free). At 4:15pm, the final stop will be at The Penthouse Gallery back at the South Coast Plaza. For more information on the schedule or museums, visit the Pacific Standard Time website.

CERAMICS: Artist Geoff McFetridge will be talking about his collaboration with Heath Ceramics with L.A. Studio Director Adam Silverman at the store today at 2pm. Heath Ceramics is located at 7525 Beverly Blvd. The show runs through December 31, and there's more information here.

UNDERGROUND FILM: The Armory Center for the Arts is collaborating with Los Angeles Filmforum to show the films of underground filmmaker Wallace Berman as a part of "Alternative Projections: Experimental Film in Los Angeles, 1945-1980." In the mid-1960's, Berman worked with a close-knit group of actors and artists who were part of the bohemian Topanga Canyon scene. The Armory will screen several films made by the artists and will include conversation among the guests, which may include Toni Basil, Tosh Berman, George Herms and Russ Tamblyn. The event starts at 8pm, and tickets are $10. The Armory is located at 145 North Raymond Avenue in Pasadena. For more information, visit the Armory's site.
