    CalArts: The School With Antz in Its SquarePants


    By MANOHLA DARGIS
    Published: May 21, 2006

    THERE is no exact moment when the cultural epicenter of the country shifted from New York to Los Angeles, just a series of progressive baby steps to the left. You could start with the movie men who fled the East's gray skies and tax collectors for the world's greatest outdoor set, or the kids who screwed the wheels from their roller skates to bits of wood and began slaloming in empty Los Angeles swimming pools. Or you could start in 1961, when Walt Disney cemented his plans for, arguably, the most interesting and salutary piece of his legacy, the California Institute of the Arts (commonly called CalArts), perhaps not the happiest place on earth, but certainly among the grooviest.

    Works by CalArts alumni on view during MoMA's Tomorrowland program include "Son of Satan" by JJ Villard.

    I'd love to hear from some New Yorkers if they go to visit this...
