It is not often that artists are given the opportunity to come into a gallery and do whatever they desire with the space. But that is the proposition that the Pierce College Art Gallery offered Los Angeles artists Lisa Adams and Rod Baer. They have created separate, intriguing installations that meet under the title, "Aleatoric Circumstances."

By next summer in Manhattan Beach, you might just be able to hang ten while sitting down. The Manhattan Beach City Council will consider a proposal in August to install 10 benches, made in the likeness of surfboards, around the oceanside community. With armrests shaped like volleyballs, the pastel-colored benches will be made from synthetic concrete and shaped as either standard longboards or the shorter body boards.

Starting Over: It's back to the drawing board in Pasadena where a controversial public art project has pitted the city's arts staff against its own advisory commission. New proposals for a $17,000 award to create a "gateway" project at the Broadway Power Plant will be sought, even though an estimated $10,000 has already been spent on the selection process, which resulted in a panel of independent arts professionals and the staff recommending sculptor Rod Baer.

Conceptual artist Rod Baer is so up front about what it's like to be an artist you laugh even when you want to wince. Most telling is a pillow, stuffed with rejection notices, grant applications, sketches and reviews, that sits beneath a framed and typeset narrative in "I Dreamed." In the dream, a row of naked artists walk casually before a uninterested review panel that evaluates and rates them.

There will be 12 empty chairs at an auction Saturday night to benefit the Venice Family Clinic building fund. But don't try to sit on them. The chairs, one of which is adorned with neon tubes, twigs and Christmas lights, are works of art that will be auctioned off to raise money to expand the clinic. A group of 200 physicians who organized the unusual fund-raiser and dinner dubbed it "Sweet Chair-ity." The event will be held at the Holmby Hills home of Diane and Stephen Reissman at 7 p.m.

In a move that may determine the future of the city's public art projects, the Pasadena City Council will vote tonight on two competing recommendations for the first such project administered under the city's new percent-for-art program. The opposing recommendations pit the city's arts division staff against its own arts commission, an advisory board of City Council appointees. At issue is a $17,000 art commission for the Broadway Power Plant at the northern end of the Pasadena Freeway.
