September in Los Angeles had a jam-packed list of events and openings matched only by the huge forest fires that were blazing in the hills above the city. Fortunately for the Armory Center for the Arts
in Pasadena, the skies cleared on Sept. 12, 2009, for the performance of a long-delayed Bruce Nauman
skywriting work, Untitled (Leave the Land Alone)
, originally conceived in 1969 but not realized till now. The local art world assembled at a lovely late morning garden party hosted by Molly Munger
and Steve English
at their Pasadena home.
