19* Museums Will Have Free Admission on March 31 When Pacific Standard Time Closes
The art festival Pacific Standard Time kicked off this fall to celebrate the region's emergence onto the global art scene after World War II. Much like Southern California itself, the event has been epic, sprawling (and sometimes overwhelming).
But it's all coming to an end very soon on March 31. To celebrate, the Getty Foundation is offering free admission to 19 museums around the region and many of those museums that still have Pacific Standard Time exhibitions going will be hosting special events to mark the end of the festival that Saturday.
Here's the list of museums that will be free March 31:
American Museum of Ceramic Art
Art, Design & Architecture Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara
California African American Museum
Chinese American Museum
Eames House Foundation
Fisher Museum of Art, University of Southern California
The J. Paul Getty Museum
The Grammy Museum
LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division)
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Mingei International Museum
ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives (West Adams and West Hollywood)
Pacific Asia Museum
Palm Springs Art Museum
Pasadena Museum of California Art
Pomona College Museum of Art
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
Scripps College, Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery
Vincent Price Art Museum, East Los Angeles College
If you decide to check out any of these museums next week or you have some photos from previous visits, add them to our Flickr photo pool or e-mail us.UPDATED 3/28: Sorry guys, it turns out the Vincent Price Art Museum is not even open on March 31, so we had to cross it off the list.
