The Museum of Jurassic Technology holds cabinets of curiosities, worlds of mysteries, and baffling phenomena explained in scientific, if gently obfuscatory, terms. From a humble storefront in Culver City, the MJT has created some of the most interesting artistic-technological-confusing exhibits and ideas circulating today. Maybe that's why the MacArthur Foundation gave its proprietor, David Wilson, one of those genius grants in 2001.

Next Tuesday the reticent Wilson speaks on microminiature art and technology in a lecture entitled "The Eye of the Needle." It's at the Pasadena Museum of History at 7:30pm; tickets are $20.

The Museum of Jurassic Technology is open Thur 2-8pm and Fri-Sun 12-6pm; admittance is $5. It can be found at 9341 Venice Blvd. in Culver City.
