Dip a brush in paint as thick and red as tomato paste and feel the slap-glide of it over a smooth surface; stir and mash a pulpy mess and watch it turn into paper; use your body to project an animated film; design a desk, a dress, your own 3-D cyberspace persona--even a prosthetic limb. In the process, begin to see how emotion and ideas can be captured in ink and crayon, cloth and cardboard, metal and wood.

Because children are allowed to handle much of the exhibition of "Made in California: NOW," maintenance poses its own special challenges, says LACMALab director Robert L. Sain. "If it were a room full of Rothkos, nobody would be calling with the question," he said when asked about safety of the works, in view of the hands-on nature of the show. "If we are successful, the price will be that keeping up the art will call upon all the resources of the institution."

These are emotional times for several women who helped found the San Diego Children's Museum in 1983, and for Robert L. Sain, the museum's new executive director.

Last year, the architectural firm known as Graft was best known to the public for designing AMMO, a tiny yet hip Minimalist restaurant in Hollywood with a dining area less than half the size of its kitchen. Then along came "Beau Monde," a group art exhibition in Santa Fe that has raised the bar for what such shows can be.

It's late afternoon a couple of weeks ago at LACMA West, and two young kids are passing time waiting for their mothers by swinging on swings in the middle of an art show. Psychedelic images flow across a screen in front of them and loud tones emanate from speakers just above--all triggered by the duo's irregular to-and-fro motion. It's a hypnotic combination, and the kids are mesmerized. For a moment.
