MUSEUMS PUT ON HOLIDAY BEST.

Byline: - Valerie Kuklenski

Twentieth-century art is celebrated this season at area museums, with works ranging from gritty Depression-era photographs and paintings by the Blue Four to sculpture by Farrah Fawcett. Yes - that Farrah Fawcett.

The Norton Simon showcases the collection of a noted modern art advocate with ``My Four Kings: Galka Scheyer and the Blue Four,'' opening Dec. 13. The exhibit has the early-20th-century works of abstract and cubist artists Paul Klee, Vasily Kandinsky, Alexei Jawlensky and Lyonel Feininger.

NORTON SIMON MUSEUM, 411 W. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. (626) 449-6840 or www.nortonsimon.org.

Dorothea Lange's lens captured the plight of 1930s migrant workers for readers of Life magazine. ``About Life: The Photographs of Dorothea Lange'' at the Getty covers her work from 1920-60 and is paired with Horace Bristol's 1937 photo series on Dust Bowl migrants in California's Central Valley. On Dec. 4, Food Network chef Sarah Moulton will sign copies of her latest cookbook, ``Sarah Moulton Cooks at Home.'' A three-course lunch prepared from Moulton's recipes will be served - $35 without wines, $50 with. Reservations required. The Jean-Baptiste Greuze exhibit is up through Dec. 1, and the Orazio Gentileschi display continues through Jan. 12.

At the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, ``Making'' is coming Nov. 24 to the Boone Children's Gallery. A collaboration with five art and design schools, the free installation explores art processes through participatory elements. In the main building, artist Keith Edmier and actress Farrah Fawcett consider the relationships between artist and muse, celebrity and fan in sculptures they created of each other for ``Contemporary Projects 7: Keith Edmier and Farrah Fawcett 2000,'' opening Thursday. The works - a mid-'70s Fawcett in marble and Fawcett's rendering of Edmier in bronze - are displayed with examples by Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray and Auguste Rodin that deal with the same themes. Opening Dec. 5 is ``Munakata Shiko: Japanese Master of the Modern Print,'' whose prolific works display both Asian and Western influences.
