Today and tomorrow you can get $3 off of admission if you go to the Huntington Library and mention PST, and Pacific Asia Museum is offering 2-for-1 admission. At 12:30 pm today the Norton Simon Museum is offering an event called "Printmaking: Medium and Mastery," which will include a tour of the exhibition "Proof: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California" and a look at other works by master printmakers Ed Ruscha, Richard Diebenkorn, David Hockney and Josef Albers.
