It's a sweeping series of art exhibits from Santa Barbara to San Diego showcasing Latin American and Latino art.
Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA opened this month with shows in more than 70 museums and artists from 45 countries. There will be pieces from the pre-Columbian Americas, but most of the exhibitions will feature modern artists, including some of the very Chicano artists who were kept out of Los Angeles' most prestigious museums just a few decades ago.
Joan Weinstein, deputy director of the Getty Foundation, which led the planning for Pacific Standard Time, joined Midday Edition Wednesday to discuss the exhibition.
