The L.A. Times has written a favorable review of the second Pacific Standard Time exhibit at the Pomona College Museum of Art, "It Happened at Pomona, Part II." Art critic Christopher Knight writes, "Part two doesn't have a specific theme, since the aim is to be a straightforward chronicle of an ambitious if short-lived institutional effort to show new art. But, at least partially, one emerges anyhow. Disquiet, apprehension, precariousness -- after the lively 1960s, this is art from a gnawing age of anxiety. Sometimes it's funny, rarely is it grim; but the restlessness is apparent."
