Pacific Standard Time, an initiative of the Getty, began when over sixty cultural organizations across Southern California came together in 2011 to celebrate the birth of the Los Angeles art scene, 1945–1980. Given its success, we decided to create Pacific Standard Time Presents, smaller-scale programs designed to continue the momentum and collaborative spirit of Pacific Standard Time until the second major offering in 2017.
