Pacific Standard Time has come to a close and here is a recap on Olson Visual’s contributions as a sponsor in over thirty exhibitions. PST was a collaboration of galleries and institutions to celebrate the birth of the LA art scene.

To coincide with the 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt, the J. Paul Getty Museum presented the exhibition, The Magic of Line. You will not find a single painting in this retrospective. Instead, there are 111 drawings including preliminary sketches, illustrative nudes, and chalk portraits. These valuable works of art were burrowed from the Getty Research Institute, the Albertina Museum in Vienna, and by other generous lenders. This show may have been inspired from the June 18, 2006th purchase of the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Klimt, making it the 4th most expensive painting ever sold in the history of art.
As you walk into the grand Getty Center Museum, you will find the many examples of Olson Visual’s banners and wall graphics. During the Pacific Standard Time’s reign, Getty exhibited four major shows focusing on California’s cultural and modern imagery.
