Erin Cosgrove's wickedly original portraits of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Abraham Lincoln depict the Founding Fathers (plus one) as humble dudes who have come back from the dead to find themselves in a world weirder and wackier than anything they experienced the first time around. At Angles Gallery, each of Cosgrove's bas-reliefs stands 6 feet tall and portrays its subject in a slew of styles. Ancient Assyrian carvings, Japanese woodblock prints, colonial crafts, medieval etchings, Tibetan totems and Chinese icons lie behind Cosgrove's sculptures.

Lucia Eames was a designer in her own right, but for the last 25 years she worked to preserve the legacy of one of the most celebrated design teams of the modern era: her father, Charles Eames, and stepmother, Ray Eames. In particular, Lucia Eames ensured that their famed Pacific Palisades house - considered one of the pinnacles of modern residential design - remained as a monument not only to the couple's sense of architecture and design, but also to the way they approached their work.

DENVER - It was spring break, and Levy Thamba, a 19-year-old college student from Africa, had checked into a fourth-floor hotel room with three of his buddies. They had come from their small college in Wyoming looking for an adventure. No one is sure how much Thamba ate of the marijuana cookie purchased by one of his friends at a local pot shop. But soon the engineering student, who had never tried marijuana before, began acting strangely hostile, tearing around the room and pulling pictures from the wall.

Even though she was the first partner of both, Ninel Kurgapkina cannot teach Nureyev's magnetism nor Baryshnikov's grace. But she can teach the foundation of their forms. So, the principal ballet mistress of the Kirov (now Maryinsky) Ballet of St. Petersburg, Russia, came to the Ballet Ecarte studio in Culver City and taught the Kirov Vaganova method to 80 students. The revered technique differs from those taught in the West by emphasizing the distribution of weight over the entire body.

Designers came from as far away as Istanbul and as nearby as Santa Monica to show their collections during the handful of disparate events that make up Los Angeles Fashion Week. But the one thing they had in common was an admiration for L.A. as a global style mecca, from the skateboard culture that inspired L.A. designer Mike Vensel's grungy nod to his '80s and '90s youth to the Hollywood red carpet that is the holy grail for Turkish designer Özgür Masur, who is already well known for dressing film and TV stars in his intricately beaded gowns in Turkey and now hopes to make it here.

Novak Djokovic proved Sunday at Indian Wells, in the men's final of the BNP Paribas Open, that Roger Federer does not walk on water. But then, Djokovic would be the first to admit that his older tennis rival does pretty well on hard courts amid the desert sand. The grand finale of this grand tournament ended up with Djokovic winning and, somehow, Federer not losing. Yes, the score went the way of the smooth-moving Serb, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3), and so did the winner's trophy and $1-million first prize.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Angels might be all about Mike Trout this and Mike Trout that, but Albert Pujols scoffed at the suggestion that he might be motivated by all that Trout has accomplished. "I don't need to compare with anybody, buddy," Pujols said Sunday. "Just look at my numbers. My job is to stay healthy and go out there and play. I don't need anybody to motivate me to play this game. " The Angels plan to bat Trout second and Pujols third, the keys to an offense that could be formidable if Pujols resembles his St. Louis self.

TEMPE, Ariz. - It's far too early to determine how Albert Pujols will rebound from a subpar season that was cut short by a left-foot injury, but early returns on the slugger are encouraging. "I feel awesome," said Pujols, who had right-knee surgery after 2012 and suffered a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot last July. "To be able to do things with no pain or discomfort, to have my legs underneath me, to move around and have the load I want in my swing … that's the biggest difference.

SOCHI, Russia - It might sound odd to hear one of the most successful ski jumpers in history talk about luck. But, for all his accomplishments, Gregor Schlierenzauer has never been an individual Olympic champion and he knows that winning the men's normal hill event Sunday won't be easy. "Gold medal is my goal," he said. "To win at the Olympic Games, you need not only good form but also luck. " Schlierenzauer figures to be pushed by the likes of Kamil Stoch of Poland, Austrian teammate Thomas Diethart and Simon Ammann of Switzerland.
