Hmmm! I need a fushia book with ecru lettering, but it must have seafoam green edging.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art: Videos and Podcasts

Find here a 20 minute video on Jacob Lawrence, one of my very favorite artists.

14. Los Angeles County Museum of Art: Videos and Podcasts
http://www.lacma.org/art/ScreeningRoom.aspx

"Art lovers who can't make it down to 5905 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles
will enjoy mulling over some of the videos and podcasts presented on this
site. Currently, the site has over fifty different programs, and the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art will continue to add new programs over the
coming months. In the "Current Features" area, visitors can take a walk
through the new museum campus and also learn a bit about an exhibition that
highlights the work of Salvador Dali. Other visitors may be more interested
in the "Public Programs" area. Here they can listen to conversations and
dialogues with the likes of Anthony Hernandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Jeff Koons,
and John Baldessari. Finally, the "Documentaries" area offers up profiles of
Jacob Lawrence, a group of contemporary potters, and noted fluorescent light
artist Dan Flavin. [KMG]"
