On art, architecture and design

1/20/2012

Officially open today: PST Public Art Festival

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

If you caught last night's performance at the Barker Hangar, you came for a great pre-event. Tonight, the Getty officially opens a citywide celebration of public art and performance in Los Angeles. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by the Getty.


Kalpa, which is the Sanskrit word for "eon," was created by Buddhist priest and master of Zen archery Hirokazu Kosaka. Here, Butoh dancers and hundreds of spools of thread will color a wall designed by architect Michael Rotondi. The piece was meant to parallel the imminent passage of time and the lives that unfold within it.

Stay after the performance to hear the Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS) performing Shoe, "a series of duets that seamlessly morph from musician to musician exposing a constantly evolving palette of musical voices."

Tonight is just the first night of revelry, catch other works of art around the city using this guide on pacificstandardtimefestival.org. Most events are free.
