Tonight at 7 pm, the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) welcomes LA author who’ll read new work as part of the museum’s Written in California series. Her 2010 novel The American Painter Emma Dial focused on the life of a studio assistant of a famous painter: He dreams the ideas and she does the painting. (Inspiration? She was Jeff Koons’ studio assistant.) The museum’s galleries are open from 6-7 pm. Exhibits and the program are free.
