Santa Monica College is host to lots of art and culture. Not just KCRW, my constant companion NPR radio station—something that I’ve mentioned before in this blog. Santa Monica College also is the home of the Broad Stage, another of the generous philanthropic gifts from Eli and Edythe Broad. In the same complex at the Broad Stage is the Pete and Susan Barrett Art Gallery. Within the last year and a half, the small college-and-community gallery has presented shows by Gwynn Murrill and Edith Baumann. Coming up soon, from November 2nd to December 4th, is a show by Peter Shire.
