The PMCA is one of the most interesting museums in Southern California. It specializes in beautifully curated special exhibitions of California artists from the past and the present. At present there are two exhibits: LA RAW a historical survey of abstract expressionism ( or abject expressionism ) with interesting examples of paintings from native artists who by ans large went on to better work and a riveting exhibit of the late John Bunkhall's works, both paintings and drawings. Bunkhall, who died tragically young at age 45, was a master painter and drawer who fulfilled his promise as a major painter. His work is too little known. One of the strengths of the PMCA is mounting these kind of showings of brilliant artists from California who are too little known or somewhat forgotten. The museum has its own free parking garage and very modest fees. The exhibits are well mounted in two spacious galleries. The is a shop with a good collection of books on California artists.
