One unique feature that separates the Petersen Automotive Museum from other automotive museums is the constantly rotating exhibit spaces. To keep The Museum fresh, relevant, and to keep visitors coming back, it was decided from the beginning not to display the entire Museum Collection at once. In the 100,000+ square feet that comprise The Petersen Automotive Museum, only about 150 vehicles are on display at any one time. The other half of the 300+ vehicle collection is in on-site storage, awaiting the chance to go on exhibition. Depending on the chosen subject, the rotating exhibits can range from 100% Petersen vehicles to 90% on loan.
A large part of The Museum’s focus is to collect and preserve historic vehicles, and a great deal of importance was placed from day one on acquiring a great number of significant vehicles of all shapes, sizes, makes, models, and purposes. As the Museum’s popularity grew as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit educational institution, people came to realize that it was the perfect tax deductible home for their prized possession. Our first donation was a beautifully restored 1952 Mercedes-Benz 300 Cabriolet from Annapolis, Maryland. Since then, we have taken in donations from all over the world varying greatly from single vehicles, to multiple vehicle collections, rare automobile components, artwork, photographs, books, and automobilia.

Department of Cultural Affairs’ Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG) is pleased to present a trailblazing exhibition SKIN, which will take place at the famed Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (4800 Hollywood Blvd.) from February 7 to April 17, 2016. The timely, topical and thought-provoking presentation examines the work of 36 contemporary artists—from established to emerging—who are expanding the ongoing dialogue about race and identity, while challenging the very definition of skin color. With works by notable artists such as Kara Walker, Nery Gabriel Lemus and Ken Gonzalez Day, the show promises to be a visual feast with its size and scale, mixed media artworks and powerful content designed to build a greater understanding of racial relations and breakdown negative stereotypes. For more information on the exhibition and robust roster of related events, please visit www.lamag.org
