The landmark Pacific Standard Time in Southern California is drawing to an end, an art event/happening/showcase that shared the history of mid-century Los Angeles and Southern California. The series of art shows kicked off in October and pushes on (officially) through Saturday, when it will end. To celebrate its closing and wish it a fond farewell, we have acquired a ton of limited edition matte posters that we want to giveaway!

We have three posters in total–one Ice Cube Celebrates The Eames, one Jason Schwartzman Celebrates John Baldessari, and one Anthony Keidis Celebrates Ed Rushca–which you can win if you tell us a few things. We want to hear what Southern California art means to you. Tell us who your favorite artists are and how you think they’ve shaped the greater artistic landscape in the world. Have any directly influenced you? How has that influence manifested itself? Give us your answer via Twitter with the hashtag #TFIBpst or on our Facebook post here.

This answer could be as long or as short as you want it to be: we just want to hear why Southern California art is important to you and what you think its place in the world at large is. Entries are due by April 10. If you want to up your chances of winning a poster, you can also enter a concurrent contest over on Los Angeles, I’m Yours. We can’t wait to hear what you have to say!

    i think the shorthand for this movement “light and space” while reductive is also really kind of perfect in it’s…generic-ness. artists like robert irwin and baldessari and dewain valentine really helped me expand my ideas about not only what art was, but what art was capable of being. when expectations can be reframed not as what something is “supposed to be” but what something “can be”, well, that’s kind of phenomenal, hey? a lot of these artists were all about about recognizing what already exists but helping you constantly revise your own experience. and once you start doing that with art, it spreads to other things in a beautiful way. perception is a remarkable, ephemeral thing in many ways. and thanks to these artists, my own ability (and patience) to perceive has grown immensely. quite a gift. sight.

    Is it possible to purchase a poster for those unable to visit the museum? I couldn’t see any online shop and I’ve loved the photo of Ice Cube leaning back in the Eames chair since I first saw it promoting the YouTube video interview…
