Snow in Santa Monica

"Each snowflake had its own bib and barbecue tongs and spatula and parachute," reads text written on the wall amidst ruddily romantic paintings of skiers, part of "What Every Snowflake Knows in Its Heart" at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Sculptor Yutaka Sone and writer-artist Benjamin Weissman made all the work in the show together. They first met on Mammoth Mountain and were interested in sports, nature and working together. A mini makeshift ski lift cycles small lift chairs through the space, and all the paintings of snowboards, skis and geared-up, red-cheeked people seem to have sprung from the same rush of inspiration. 2525 Michigan Ave., G1, Santa Monica; through April 5. (310) 586-6488,
