Millard Sheets: A Legacy of Art and Architecture
Sunday, March 18, 2012

As part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980, the Conservancy and its Modern Commitee are proud to present a special,
one-time-only tour exploring the art and architecture of Millard Sheets in the Claremont and Pomona area.

A highly influential artist, designer, and educator, Sheets made an indelible mark on the postwar Southern California landscape.

You’ll enjoy a curated look at important examples of his work, including his own former studio, as well as the contributions of his many peers and protégés.

In recent years, Sheets’ w[/quote]ork has grown increasingly vulnerable to demolition and excessive alteration. The Conservancy and our Modern Committee are working to raise awareness of, and preserve, Sheets’ rich legacy of Southern California art and architecture.

Millard Sheets: A Legacy of Art and Architecture is part of Pacific Standard Time. This unprecedented collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.

Does anyone know if this is rain-or-shine? Rain is in the forecast for Sunday, at least at this point...

Also, keeping in mind the L.A. marathon might help trip-planning...

Oops...I see it says on my tickets: "RAIN OR SHINE."

Does anyone know of fairly comprehensive lists of Millard Sheets' mural work, both in SoCal and in other parts of the country?
