The Cool School: How LA Learned to Love Modern Art

I had the opportunity to watch this great documentary film over the weekend and thought: "Oh, goodness. If there was ever a film made for GrassrootsModern readers, this is it!" And you know what? I mean it. The Cool School is a fantastic (and endlessly interesting) look into the birth of the modern art movement in Los Angeles during the mid-50s to late-60s. If you're interested in art, modernism, or the history of LA, your homework assignment is to watch it this week!
