For culture fans, the fate of LA's beleaguered Museum of Contemporary Art dangles like Jack Bauer off a Fed building on '24.' Will financial angels swoop in to save the day? Will it be gobbled up by LACMA? Or will it just disappear, adding to LA's already over-exaggerated status as a culture-less den of superficiality?
On Thursday, January 22nd, we all get the chance to save MOCA. ART LA, the city's annual art fair, opens this year with a reception to benefit the museum. Serious collectors will want the $150 preview tickets (6:30-8:30pm). A more affordable $50 gets you into the 8:30-10:30pm showing. Works from more than 60 galleries from California and throughout the world exhibit at the three-day affair in the massive Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. We say that's a darn affordable -- and entertaining -- way to do your part for MOCA. Click here for tickets.
