Chris Burden's "Urban Light," a street lamp assemblage outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, is an improbably popular spot for visitor photo ops and selfies. A less-heralded piece by Burden, who died Sunday at age 69 of malignant melanoma, stands on the campus of his alma mater, Pomona College.

I spent a few hours there on Sunday evening and marveled, as I always do, at the same dynamic.
Since the early 1990s, Valley Boulevard -- known for its diverse range of Chinese eats -- has been the main food artery of the San Gabriel Valley. According to David R. Chan, who has eaten at more than 6,500 Chinese restaurants, there are roughly 200 Chinese restaurants on Valley alone. Prior to the wave of Chinese restaurants, the area was mostly occupied by western European and Hispanic families. The boulevard was born not out of necessity but out of nostalgia for home, for community and, most important, for food.
