The big news is that curator Peter Frank selected paintings by DOROTHY BROWDY KUSHNER and FRED SHANE for the exhibition The Big Picture, on view at the Fair. Sub-titled Paintings from Southern California, 1960-1980, The Big Pictures is designed to celebrate the development of the LA art scene, and is part of the multi-venued extravaganza, Pacific Standard Time.
