Torrance Art Museum TAM 3320 Civic Center Drive, Torrance
Main Gallery - Second Sight: New Representations in Photography curated by Chris Reynolds Second Sight refers to the apparent power to perceive things that are not present to the senses. Conversely, this term is also adopted by theorist Roland Barthes in his criticism and theorization on photography, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography. Barthes states that the “photographer's 'second sight' does not consist in 'seeing' but in being there”. Second Sight: New Representations in Photography ventures beyond our preconceived perceptions of what is and what is not photography today. Whether they investigate photographic image-making as object, history, truth, or trompe l'oeil, these artists challenge, push, and ultimately expand upon the lexicon of photography. In Gallery Two - JOHN HYATT - UK artist, influential educator and cult musician

Torrance Airport (3315 Airport Drive, Torrance, 90505)
Before the age of brilliant, autonomous drones, national leaders and military commanders still needed immediate information about conditions and events in potential conflict areas. The only way to get this information was to equip manned aircraft with the best available cameras and sensors, and to dispatch them on the often hazardous missions to collect this vital data. This was the domain where the Northrop F-5 Tiger air defense fighter already dominated. The Northrop F-5A/B Freedom Fighter and the F-5E/F Tiger II are part of a family of supersonic light fighter, initially designed in the late 1950s by Northrop Corporation. Being smaller, the F-5 costs less ($2.1 million) to both procure and operate, making it a popular export aircraft. The F-5 started life as a privately funded light fighter program by Northrop in the 1950s. The aircraft is also a capable ground-attack platform. After winning the International Fighter Aircraft competition in 1970, Northrop introduced the second-generation F-5E Tiger II in 1972. This upgrade included more powerful engines, higher fuel capacity, greater wing area and improved leading edge extensions for a better turn rate, optional air-to-air refueling, and improved avionics including air-to-air radar. Primarily used by American allies (Republic of China Air Force, Republic of Korea Air Force And Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force), it was also used in U.S. training exercises. A total of 1,400 Tiger IIs were built before production ended in 1987. More than 3,800 F-5 and T-38 aircraft were produced in Hawthorne. The F-5 was also developed into a dedicated reconnaissance version, the RF-5 Tigereye. The newly modified aircraft was called the Tiger Eye, and the countries that were already operating the fighter versions had full confidence that the reconnaissance version would perform as well for them as the fighters. They were right. Two of the men who played major roles in developing and proving this remarkable aircraft have agreed to describe the technical challenges and triumphs that constituted the reconnaissance program. Join us, while Ron Gibb and Roy Martin share the inside story of designing and flying the Tiger Eye. Individual, family or business membership gives you one-year unlimited FREE admission to celebrity lectures, plus the quarterly newsletter and access to the research library (includes membership card) and access to special events. Members also will be listed in annual publications. Support your community’s unique museum and place in history. WMoF Members are free; non-members are $5, which also includes access to WMoF museum exhibits. Free parking.
