Whether it's Apple's iPad, a new building or the latest fashion, California's artists and designers have left their mark on the world. Perhaps that's why museums around Southern California indulge in celebrating the local talent. Later this year at the Orange County Museum of Art, the California Biennial makes a comeback. But this week marked a separate biennial at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.

The fourth annual California Design Biennial, Action/Reaction, brings together a group of California designers from various fields: industrial design, fashion, graphic, transportation and lastly, architecture, which was a newly introduced category this year.
