Pacific Standard Time: New Getty Initiative Posted November 3, 2010 by Daniel Ostroff

The Getty Institute announces a major new, Southern California initiative, and uses Ray Eames textile and a Charles Eames quote to represent the era.

We picked up this postcard at Pacific Standard Time gathering.  It’s the first promotional postcard for The Getty’s PACIFIC STANDARD TIME and they used a Ray Eames textile and a Charles Eames quote to represent the era.

Art in L.A. 1945–1980

One era. A million moments of impact.

There will be many Eames exhibitions, including this Getty exhibition curated by Daniel Ostroff


Los Angeles is the birthplace of many of the most influential art movements of the second half of the 20th century, yet much of this history is not well known. Pacific Standard Time, a partnership between the Getty Foundation and the Getty Research Institute, is an effort that aims to tell the story of this important moment through an unprecedented collaboration of more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California.

From October of 2011 through March 2012, exhibitions and programs across the region will highlight the artistic production of Southern California, ranging from hard-edge painting to assemblage sculpture, from the Light and Space movement to film and video art, from Pop Art to feminist art, and from performance art to modern design.
