One Of California's Finest

In anticipation of our Los Angeles visit at the Hotel Conleyfornia before hitting the trail, I wanted to share an exciting exhibition with y'all.....

If you are in the Orange County area or can somewhat easily travel there, I encourage you to stop in at the Orange County Museum of Art and spend some time with the artwork of Richard Diebenkorn. Diebenkorn spent the most of his life living and working between the Bay Area (SF/Berkeley) and Santa Monica, where he painted the majority of his famous "Ocean Park" series. Approximately 80 of the 145 "Ocean Park" works can be seen at the OCMA. In my opinion, Diebenkorn was one of the most underrated American Expressionist/Figurative painters of his time. The exhibition is running through May 27th, 2012. The OCMA charges $12 admission for non-members and is open Wednesday-Sunday (closed Monday/Tuesday). If you don't already have plans for this Sunday (March 11th), you can visit the OCMA for free as part of their "Second Sundays". Last but not least, NPR recently did a piece on Diebenkorn that is definitely worth a listen.
