"Starting in September, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is bringing together art institutions from across Southern California for a large-scale project that explores Latin-American and Latino art. Local museums and cultural centers will host a thematically-linked series of art exhibitions and public events—including performances, lectures, discussions, workshops, and family activities—that run through January 2018.

Paul Getty Trust, said in a statement."
