When designer Halston partnered with JC Penney early in the 1980s, it was something of a first: a couture name making clothes for the masses. The ads for the match all said, "You're Looking Smarter Than Ever." One showed a lady in bold pink pantyhose, a matching pink dress and white hat striding across the street. Artist Chris Lipomi includes a poster-size version of that image in his new LAX Art installation, a visual and tactile exploration of what happens when high-art aesthetics meet the mainstream. 2640 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through Oct. 19. (323) 868-5893, laxart.org.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 7. Continues through Oct. 19, 2013
