It’s been two months since Carson residents started smelling rotten eggs and getting headaches. LA County declared a state of emergency, paid for thousands of hotel rooms, and are spraying thousands of gallons of odor neutralizer on the nearby Dominguez Channel every day for weeks. Now the county says Carson is safe, and it will stop paying for rooms this week. But the residents who are already home say the problem isn’t solved.

The LA Auto Show is back in action after being canceled last year due to COVID, and the spotlight has shifted from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric vehicles (EVs). Plus, two new solo exhibitions in LA feature artists who mix landscapes with history, mythology, and more to create abstract paintings.
