The Santa Monica Museum of Art is hosting a Pacific Standard Time show on the famous California ceramicist Beatrice Wood. It is an amazing show and so comprehensive, more on it later. Make time to see the show (there has never been so much of her work together in one show before), but on your way in check this out.
At the entrance of the museum they have recycled a car into a planter for water-wise plants. It was beautiful with the aeoniums, aloes and other succulents cascading out of the car windows. Very cool.
Make sure you leave time to explore the rest of the art on display in the galleries at Bergamot Station where the museum is located.
