If all the carpetbagger brouhaha over this summer's Warhol Retrospective at MOCA leaves you craving more local color, look no further than Pasadena (where Andy, in 1970, had his first North American museum retrospective -- there's no escape! Ha ha ha ha!). Armory Center curator Jay Belloli's ambitious inaugural show at the revamped Old Town location features site-specific commissioned works by L.A. faves Lynn Aldrich, Michael McMillen, Tamara Fites, Steve Roden and others. The militantly provincial Pasadena Museum of California Art, funded by collectors Robert and Arlene Oltman, opens this summer with "On-Ramps." The exhibit promises to be everything LACMA's Made in California was not: at once concise and comprehensive, and organized along four distinct curatorial foci -- provided by Thomas Solomon, Michael Duncan, Nancy Moure and L.A. Weekly's own Peter Frank.

"New Works New Spaces," the Armory Center for the Arts, 145 N. Raymond Ave.; through June 23; (626) 792-5101.
