Big changes are coming to Exposition Park. The Endeavour space shuttle, NASA announced last month, will be moving to the California Science Center campus -- though not to Frank Gehry's cramped 1984 Air and Space Gallery, whose future is, well, up in the air. The UCLA basketball team will take up temporary residence this fall at Welton Becket's 1959 Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, another candidate for future demolition. And a new Metro light-rail line along Exposition Boulevard, nearly complete, will knit the park into the regional transit grid even as its impact at ground level promises to be something of a disaster.

With its lines of visiting children, campus-like layout and exhibits bearing such titles as "Wheels of Change" and "The Energy Experience," the California Museum of Science and Industry gives off a deceptively tranquil air. In fact, it is an institution in turmoil. For months, the museum has been embroiled in conflict. On one side are state officials who operate and oversee the facility, located in Los Angeles' Exposition Park.

"One day plastinates will rule the world!" * No, that's not a quote from a cackling alien with a synthetic brain in the latest summer sci-fi flick. It was written by an enthusiastic visitor in a guest book at "Body Worlds," an exhibition featuring real human cadavers -- in various graphic stages of dissection for anatomical study -- preserved by a process that replaces body fluids with plastic.

There was no refugee from the Comedy Club handling emcee duties, no vocalist belting out his guts. There wasn't even a dance floor for anyone so inspired. There was a quickie video highlighting a prominent gene expression lab, and there was no question that brevity was the order of the evening. Speeches were over and everyone was on the way home by 9:20 p.m.

"Whoa! That's so cool!" Julian Guzman shrieked as he spotted an image of wingless midge larvae.

Rudolph, president and chief executive of the California Science Center.

A slice of Exposition Park that was once an asphalt parking lot enclosed by chain-link fence and barbed wire was dedicated Wednesday as Jesse A. Brewer Jr. Park. City and state officials paid tribute to Brewer, who broke through racial barriers in the Los Angeles Police Department and remained a faithful public servant in a variety of roles throughout his life.
