Dashing through L.A., in a quarter mile display, it's Rauschenberg: In and About L.A. and Rauschenberg: The 1/4 Mile, on view "all the way" through February 10 and June 9, respectively. Oh what fun you'll have visiting these two complementary exhibitions! Rauschenberg: In and About L.A. offers insights of the famed artist Robert Rauschenberg's early influences through his visits to Southern California, experimenting with the use of varied mediums and methods and embracing cross-cultural exchanges. Then take in Rauschenberg’s monumental The 1/4 Mile or 2 Furlong Piece, which exemplifies the tenets of his artistic practice. The installation includes 190 panels measuring about a quarter mile in length, comprising textiles, mass media images, photographs, paint, chairs, boxes, and traffic lights.
