Pacific Standard Time – Spend Hours at the Getty

Backyards in Diamond Bar and Other Oddities

In 1980, Joe Deal photographed backyards in Diamond Bar. The images, all black-and-white and clinical, make suburbia seem absolutely absurd. Among his strangest is a photo of a swimming pool–shaped island of perfectly green grass, empty but surrounded by lawn furniture, cacti and other brush arranged in dirt. It’s on view in the Getty’s “In Focus” show along with about two dozen other silver gelatin prints that examine SoCal from the ’50s until 1980. The show feels like an Errol Morris documentary — skeptical but almost eagerly so, and all strung together with understated, dry humor.

The Getty Museum is just one of the many southern California museums and galleries participating in Pacific Standard Time.  If you just flew over this incredible structure overlooking the Los Angeles basin during one of your Los Angeles helicopter tours then you should make it a point to visit the museum and see what they have inside.

Pacific Standard Time is a collaboration of numerous southern California museums and galleries curating exhibits to celebrate the vision and history of California artists.
