World's Smallest Contemporary Museum Journeys to L.A. | KCET
When Nuevo Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (or NuMu, for short) was born in 2012, artists Jessica Kairé and Stefan Benchoam meant this ovoid structure to challenge visitors’ notions of what a museum should be in the 21st century. Within an intimate 6.5 by 8.2 feet, this unconventional art museum has hosted more than 15 exhibitions and numerous public programs, while only accommodating up to four people at a time. It is the world’s smallest contemporary art museum. Take a look inside this unusual art space and hear from its founders, as they recreate the museum in Guatemala and take their concept on the road to Los Angeles for Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.

At first glance, there's nothing iconic or remarkable about the Los Angeles created by production designer K.K. Barrett. And it's by his own design. However, look again, and the complex environments the award-winning world builder has created for commercials and feature films crackle and pop with smart visual clues.

The 5, the 101, the 405: Why Southern Californians Love Saying 'the' Before Free...
Southern Californians have a distinctive -- "Saturday Night Live's" Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig might say funny -- way of giving directions. To get from Santa Monica to Hollywood, take the 10 to the 110 to the 101. Burbank to San Diego? The 134 to the 5. And, if you can, always avoid the 405.
