Dirty Looks, a New York-based platform for queer experimental film and video, is returning to the West Coast for a second tour. While in Los Angeles, the organization will premiere never-before-seen work by Tom Rubnitz, which was discovered in the Video Data Bank archives at the Billy Wilder Theater. In association with LA FilmForum, they've also organized a program of contemporary queer portraits called Yesterday Once More, which will feature works by emerging artists made within the last two years.

As publisher of Curating Los Angeles, I receive countless emails promoting events around the southland. Many of the messages at this time of year are holiday related and of those, a significant number extol the virtues of one gift or another offered up by a bevy of local businesses, museums, and schools.
This year my family agreed to limit holiday gift giving to the children in our lives. The adults just want to spend time together and enjoy the season in a less commercial fashion. That decision has greatly reduced the amount of time we’ll all need to spend searching for just the right gifts, as well as save everyone money.
The Los Angeles arts scene is one of the most vibrant in the world. Long known for its embrace of experimentation and innovation, the city’s community of artists is as diverse as its population. To recognize and support this rich talent pool, the Hammer Museum has organized Made in L.A. 2012 in collaboration with LA>
This weekend twenty of southern California’s finest cultural institutions join together to honor their members. Show an active membership card from any of the participating museums and gain entry to all the others at no charge. What’s more, you’ll also receive significant savings in the museums’ gift shops.
If your child enjoys crafting a good story, the Hammer Museum and 826LA have a program that is sure to please.

Deón is an award-winning screenwriter and practicing attorney. She is currently penning her debut novel, The Spinning Wheel. Ages 8–13.
