  • Exposition Park hosts new IMAX film ‘Jerusalem,’ Dead Sea Scrolls

    The California Science Center at Exposition Park near downtown Los Angeles is hosting interconnected multimedia events: the new 45-minute IMAX film “Jerusalem” and an exhibition of the Dead Sea Scrolls contextualized by historic and remarkably preserved artifacts from the Holy Land.

  • Van Gogh’s ‘The Mulberry Tree’ at the Norton Simon Museum

    When I go to a museum, I don’t like to look at a hundred pictures for a short time. I like to look at one picture for a long time.

  • Vessels and Channels

  • Dido and Aeneas/Bluebeard’s Castle at the L.A. Opera

    I’m enthralled by the late opera singer Maria Callas — her voice, her life. I also have a thing for the somewhat obscure German contralto Emmi Leisner (1885-1958). But perhaps like many of us, I’ve always thought of opera as a high-brow version of the musical, which, with the exception of Fred Astaire movies, I pretty much can’t stand.

  • ‘A Spectacular Triumph’

    Breathtaking, inspiring and artistically engaging, “Spectacular Rubens: the Triumph of the Eucharist,” a new exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum, features the work of master artist Peter Paul Rubens told in both elaborate oil sketches and monumental original tapestries woven in the early 1620s for a Franciscan convent in Spain.

¡Que viva el Beato Oscar Romero!

Archbishop José H. Gomez

“One must not love oneself so much as to avoid getting involved in the risks of life that history demands of us. … But whoever out of love for Christ gives themselves to the service of others will live, like the grain of wheat that dies. ... Only in dying does it produce the harvest. … Whoever offers their life out of love for Christ, and in service to others, will live like the seed that dies.”
