The Petersen Automotive Museum has weathered the Covid-19 storm well with great virtual presentations that have kept fans entertained and engaged for a full year (and more now). Their multi-event response to the pandemic has broadened the museum's reach well beyond the Los Angeles area and to places where just tooling over for a car show there is a bit more complicated than taking the 10 west to Fairfax and heading north a few blocks. On-site or on-video the celebration of the automobile goes on at the Petersen. It's become the beating heart of LA car culture, and just a great place to hang out at in general ... We'll see you there!
