On View at the Getty Center: Greetings from L.A.: Artists and Publics 1950-1980
The Artists Protest Committee, assembled by the artist Irving Petlin, staged various actions against the Vietnam War in May of 1965. Among them was a “White Out” on Gallery Row, in which participating artists and dealers covered work in white paper. The police intervened when activists began posting signs on parking meters and lamp posts.
