With their eyes on the future, the Contemporaries--a group of mostly twenty- and thirtysomething arts patrons--staged their first fund-raising bash Saturday for the new Orange County Museum of Art. Fast Forward was the theme of the cocktail party, video art exhibit and dance that drew more than 200 party-goers to Emporio Armani at South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa. The $45-per-person gala was expected to net about $25,000.

When the Orange County Museum of Art marks its first anniversary on Saturday, it can celebrate without reservation its financial strength and mushrooming attendance. It still has a way to go, though, toward reaching its artistic goals, arts observers and museum officials say. "Our record of accomplishment is truly extraordinary," said board President Charles D. Martin.

With the increasingly controversial Newport Harbor/Laguna Art Museum merger still unresolved Wednesday, Newport Harbor board President James V. Selna said his museum "is going to the next step of a countywide museum with or without Laguna." Meanwhile, Laguna board President Gilbert LeVasseur, an architect of the merger talks, said that without the merger, he cannot guarantee that his museum will be able to meet its overhead, including payroll, after June.

Sleek and chic, the installations of Inigo Manglano-Ovalle observe the prosaic technological weather of contemporary life and reflect it back to us. Therein resides the strength of his work -- and its weakness too. The observations range from acute to obvious, but little is transformed by their simple reflection.

Fourteen years and a billion dollars in the making. One of the world's great art collections. Location, location, location! But what most fascinates Southern Californians about the new Getty Center, opening today in Brentwood? The 1,200-car capacity (for a mental picture, compare to South Coast Plaza's 10,804 spaces), reservations-only parking garage. When last we called, there was a nine-minute wait to check parking availability. So, Orange County, have you reserved your spot?

As part of agreements reached Thursday to merge the Newport Harbor and Laguna art museums as the Orange County Museum of Art, the Laguna museum's present home will stay open as an branch, co-managed by the new museum and a nonprofit corporation. The Laguna Art Museum Heritage Corp.--which will include artists, Laguna museum members and others who had opposed the merger--will have almost complete access to the 3,800-piece Laguna museum collection and veto power over sales.
