After pronouncing his support for same-sex marriage yesterday (finally), President Barack Obama rolls into our godless, heathen city for a fundraising dinner that will boast an all-star guest list including Tobey Maguire, Barbara Streisand, and Robert Downey, Jr. at George Clooney's home in Studio City tonight. For the rest of Los Angeles (that means you) this will mean major traffic; specifically, if you try to drive in the Valley tonight, you may be the one who's forced to find religion. We've got all the details of who's going to be chowing down at Casa del Cloon this evening, plus street closure and traffic info right here. More»

Keep reading for all the details and street closures. More»
Are you a functioning, borderline sane L.A. denizen? Is the looming temporary closure of the 405, expected to cause traffic quite unlike anything that's befallen this city (including that time Obama came to town), giving you gas? Don't worry, you're not alone and there's a place you can turn if your feelings surrounding this horrifying reality known as Carmageddon are becoming overwhelming and have you questioning the existence of god.

Hope you guys don't need to be anywhere important today because an unstoppable force sparing no one south of the 101 is descending on L.A. this afternoon that promises you'll be late and sit in the kind of traffic that makes you seriously consider abandoning your vehicle to take off on foot. That's right, President Obama is coming to town, More»

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
