“Close your eyes while I say Los Angeles. What comes to mind? Your fantasy of the place is no less true than the diverse daily lives of it’s actual citizens, and part of the unique charge of this city happens when the quotidian and fantasy congeal” - Fritz Haeg

As art galleries gear up for the upcoming December art fairs in Miami and Los Angeles in January, the rest of us welcome the holidays. The Los Angeles art scene slows down, but merely for a week. There’s still plenty to do and still keep up with holiday celebrations. News for one of our top museum institutions did not come lightly this week, as LACMA announces it’s lack of funds that will now slow down advancements of current construction. The museum hopes to raise $100 million dollars in donations to go on with initial plans.
