In Case You Missed It: Zócalo Public Square: How Can L.A.’s Art Museums Thrive?

September 11, 2012

Last Friday our own Michael Govan joined the Hammer Museum’s director, Ann Philbin, and the Getty’s brand-new director, Timothy Park, in a wide-ranging conversation about museums in Los Angeles, moderated by the Los Angeles Times’ Jori Finkel. Their talk covered many topics, from community engagement to artist collaborations to Hollywood, philanthropy and, yes, the current travails at MoCA.  You can watch the entire hour-long conversation, or download the audio as a podcast, at Zócalo’s website, and it is worth the time if you have interest in L.A.’s museum community.
