    The era chron­icled by the “Pa­cific Stand­ard Time: Art in Los Angeles 1945-1980” ex­hib­i­tions was event­ful for South­ern Cali­for­nia as a whole. Not only was the re­gion be­com­ing an artist­ic and pop cul­ture force, it was grow­ing rap­idly and evolving in­to the place we know today. This timeline places art world events in the con­text of post-World War II his­tory to give a broad­er un­der­stand­ing of what was hap­pen­ing in South­ern Cali­for­nia dur­ing the Pa­cific Stand­ard Time years.
