Made in LA Shines Light on Emerging Artists in Los Angeles Pacific Standard Time involved local museums and galleries in a tribute to art works produced between 1945 and 1980. Tomorrow, the Hammer Museum in Westwood will open Made in LA 2012 . A biennial, it will feature some 60 emerging and overlooked LA-based artists, and the Hammer has actually helped them financially to develop their work. Ann Philbin is Director of the Hammer Museum .
