New, 14 comments

DOWNTOWN - Latest construction shot of the theater part of Buck Rogers High School, (aka Central Los Angeles Area High School #9), which is scheduled to be completed this August so the kids can get ready to sing and dance down the halls in September. Remember, it's a high school for the performing arts. Projected building cost: $171.9 million according to architecture firm Coop Himmelb(l)au. Producing the next Gene Anthony Ray - priceless.

KOREATOWN: Those historical kiosks scattered around Downtown—the ones that contain info about buildings and neighborhoods e.g. The Million Dollar Theatre and Bunker Hill—are spreading. Koreatown received its own marker this week at Wilshire and Western that details the creation of the Wiltern Theatre (Wiltern=Wilshire+Western! who knew?), and the time when the intersection was the busiest in the nation.

WESTCHESTER - Looking for a little exposure and free publicity, mixed use community Playa Vista has donated $15,000 to LACMA. According to the press release, the donation to the "Modern and Contemporary Art Council (MCAC) Acquisitions Fund...will be used to acquire artwork from a Southern California artist that will strengthen LACMA's holdings of contemporary Southern California art." That will come in handy on top of Broad's $10 million donation. [Curbed InBox]
