As a native Angelino, I know it is also a city that is so much more than those stereotypes. It just took me 28 years to realize it.

Want to talk about miracles? How about the person who was once shot by a friend and survived? A couple of years later, the same person was crucified -- yes, he was literally nailed to the back of a Volkswagen. And once again, he survived. No, I am not talking about Jesus Christ.

Much of the international art world was in shock over the death of artist Chris Burden, 69, on Sunday after a long bout with melanoma. Burden's career spanned six decades and, in an era of specialization, covered many genres of art, some of which he helped to define.

This is a true story. It's about the way many people get around Los Angeles and how more of us should navigate the City of Angels. Native Angelenos, new arrivals, older transplants like me, tourists and everyone in between.

The ABCs of Los Angeles Metro

That is what we need to do. Always be closing on our transit improvements and with Washington where our tax dollars are kept. Renaming our transit lines is small ball and a distraction compared to the construction and other work at hand.

In contrast, there are few images of Heizer's current project under construction, as the site is not yet open to the public. Govan shows us two aerial images, one of the "City" site, and the other of the Washington D.C. National Mall.

So, my friends, here is the latest. For the next two weeks, I am off to France for a press trip, organized by the Poitou-Charentes region in Western France. How can I say no? The region is famous for its ancient Roman history, medieval architecture, plenty of small museums, and beautiful landscapes.

Light is a lifelong obsession for the most brilliant minds, bringing artists and physicists into critical dialogue through their parallel explorations. For centuries, scientists have asked: "Why is the sky blue?"

It's been exactly nine years since the glorious day when Michael Govan, the newly appointed Director of Los Angeles County Museum of Art, greeted a larger than usual crowd at a press opening in March of 2006.

Llyn Foulkes 'One Man Band'

In the film, Foulkes has the charisma of Robin Williams, the looks of Clint Eastwood, the neurosis of Woody Allen and a singer/songwriter voice of Tom Waits. Put all these things in a meat grinder and it's a no-brainer that Foulkes stands apart from the Ferus brethren in this feature documentary film.

Fifty Shades of White, and More...

Upon entering Shulamit Gallery in Venice, one encounters a subtle, abstract, white on white wall relief by LA artist David Abir. This is another case where it is up to us viewers to count the number of shades of white.

I love taking classes. I love learning. Since graduating college, I've signed up for courses all over LA, from UCLA Extension's writing seminars (they're great!) to improv workshops at The Groundlings (good too!). And I won't even get into all the acting classes I have experienced.

Pas de Deux

The succession of works of the two masters from one wall to the other accentuates this "musical" effect of their convergence: a "pas de deux" of two artists, performing their dance on a "visual" stage.

Men and War: Art Review

The fact that this substantial body of work spans only two years, from 1913 to 1915, is staggering in itself. That many of them were made in bereavement, as a memorial tribute to the gay artist's lover, killed during the first year of action, gives them a particular emotional poignancy and social significance.

When Cara Delevingne gives her seal of approval to something, you just know it's going to be big. So the fact that the model has officially crossed over to the dark side (of hair color that is) should tell you one thing: brunettes are officially having a moment.

Samurai and Jazz Invasion of LACMA

The gallery is flooded with dramatic red light, and the first thing you are confronted with upon entering are Samurai horsemen, charging right at you. Staring at their elaborate suits of armor, including helmets and faceguards, it's difficult not to think about an over-the-top opera production or Hollywood blockbuster movie.
