Mark Allen, founder of LA’s Machine Project, led 35 artists in a day-long art event on November 15, 2008 at LACMA entitled “A Machine Project’s Field Guide to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.” The event included performances, installations and workshops and received rave reviews in both the NY Times (November 30, 2008, p. 27) and the LA Times (November 17, 2008, pp. E1,5).
As part of the event, Pomona sculptor Michael O’Malley “remade” a work by Carl Andre (see photo below)
