The Black Maria Gallery in Atwater Village challenged 20 artists to envision a fictional painting -- titled The Burning of Los Angeles -- that Nathanael West described in his 1939 classic, The Day of the Locust. The results, including Julie Lee's "Sun-drenched California Nightmare," can be seen in the gallery's Hollywood Apocalypse! exhibition, which continues through April 19.
