Data + Art exhibit, Pasadena, CA

Some folks might be interested in the Data + Art exhibit currently at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Subtitled Science and Art in the Age of Information, this appears to be an exhibit of work related to data visualization and other forms of data expression. To quote the blurb on the exhibit page, "These interpretations of data will empower the average person to see the invisible, hear the inaudible and understand the impossibly complex."

Personally, I find it interesting that this museum is devoted specifically to California art, as if that were a genre unto itself. I can understand museums devoted to local history and culture, and museums devoted to specific genres, styles or philosophical outlooks. But California as a category of art seems odd to me.

The exhibit runs through April 12.
