Last Saturday, several local museums offered free admission as a way to mark the end of the sprawling six-month-long exhibition festival Pacific Standard Time. But don’t throw away your little red guide to the PST shows quite yet.

As could be expected from such an unwieldy event involving many different institutional schedules, several exhibitions are spilling beyond the official six-month mark, giving people a little more time to fill in gaps in their knowledge of Southern California art history.

Here’s a list of shows that run beyond this week:

‘Places of Validation, Art, and Progression’ at the California African American Museum (CAAM) through April 12.

‘San Diego’s Craft Revolution: From Post-War Modern to California Design,’ at the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, through April 15.
