Inspired by 'Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles'

March 8, 2013

Monday, March 11 is your last chance to see Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960–1980, at MoMA PS1 in New York.

When Now Dig This! opened at the Hammer Museum in October 2011 we launched a school outreach program that continues today. One of the first schools we welcomed was the Willows Community School in Culver City. Inspired by the exhibition,Willows Community middle school students (and budding artists) created these amazing sketches following in the tradition of Pacific Standard Time. We hope the students of New York were just as inspired.

Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960-1980 was presented as part of Pacific Standard Time, a collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California. Organized by the Hammer and curated by Columbia University professor Kellie JonesNow Dig This! chronicled and celebrated the nuanced and multicultural history of Los Angeles, and was the only Pacific Standard Time show to travel to New York.  The exhibition will travel to the Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown, Massachusetts from July 20 – December 1, 2013.
