Thanks to a gift of 543 photographs from an anonymous donor, the Palm Springs Art Museum is transforming its photography collection and expanding its exhibition program. The donation surveys camera art from the mid-19th to the late 20th centuries, with pockets of strength in early photography and Pictorialist images by artists such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen and Julia Margaret Cameron. It also includes views of Egypt and Palestine taken by Francis Frith in the 1850s, street scenes of early 20th century Paris by Eugene Atget, dramatically modern compositions by Edward Weston, experimental pieces by Lyonel Feininger and poetic landscapes by Harry Callahan.

Zbigniew Krawiec swore that he had just been drinking pickle juice when he was pulled over for drunk driving, but a jury decided he was pickled and convicted him anyway. Krawiec, a Polish immigrant, said his favorite beverage is pickle juice. It's a Polish custom, he told jurors Thursday. To prove his point, defense attorney Jim Kane introduced a jar of dill pickles and wanted Krawiec to take a mouthful on the witness stand to prove he loves the stuff.

This is the 22nd post in a series focusing on this year's free-agent class. Player: Maurice Evans Former team: Washington Wizards Type of free agent: Unrestricted Positives: The Lakers are fairly familiar with Evans, who wore the purple and gold during the 2006-07 season before being traded with Brian Cook to the Orlando Magic for Trevor Ariza. During Evan's brief stint, he provided the ingredients the Lakers want for Kobe Bryant's backup. He scored more than 20 points seven times.

PALM SPRINGS - A modest little painting near the entry to the exhibition "Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years, 1953-1966" is a harbinger of things to come. Not just for the lovely and engrossing show that unfolds in the galleries at the Palm Springs Art Museum , but for Diebenkorn's greater achievement. That came after the painter left Northern California and settled in Los Angeles, where he began the peerless "Ocean Park" abstractions. "Seated Man" was painted in 1956.

Somewhere in Newport Beach is a two-story warehouse with no sign on the door or any other clue as to what it holds. But inside is the core of a vast art collection that has been seen by only a few select people in the art world. It includes original works by numerous contemporary artists who are world-famous - such as Richard Diebenkorn , Robert Irwin , Helen Lundeberg , Carlos Almaraz and Edward Kienholz - as well as lesser-known figures. But the artists all have one thing in common: They all worked in California.

Theatre Carnivale has blown back into town and has set up its act at the Olio Theatre. Self-dubbed "splattervillians" (as opposed to vaudevillians), Carnivale performers (main Carnivale members Johanna Went, Stephen Holman, Toni Oswald, Aaron Osborne and the Stank are mostly L.A.-based) like messy theater that leaves stains on our collective unconscious. Calling them updated Grand Guignol makes them sound too civilized. Each Thursday night performance in March has a different theme.

Murnon Barrow. Kelpy Lockwood. Molina Claflin. Playwright Gabriel Walsh has his own, curious way of doing things, and it begins with his characters' names in "Hearts," at the American New Theatre. The names are halfway to the point of sounding ultra-authentic, yet also halfway down the primrose path of literary pretension. They're odd, yet they don't really sing, nor do they suggest the characters themselves. In a word, the names, like the play, need work.

Don and Mera Rubell are known in the art world as the New York-to-Miami transplants who helped to bring the Art Basel art fair to Florida and opened a museum-like space there for their cutting-edge collection. Not so well known: their connections to California. They lived here briefly in 1969, when Don did his internship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center before becoming a gynecologist. In 2005 and 2006 they flew from Miami to Los Angeles so often in search of new, exciting art that they called their resulting exhibition "Red Eye. " "We could have called it GPS," Mera said, laughing, remembering crisscrossing the city to reach artists' studios.
