With chilly temperatures turning Los Angeles into a homegrown hibernal state, Century City has you covered when capturing the essence of a winter previously unseen in Southern California.

The new “Pearls of the Planet” live cam, on view through March 20, at the Annenberg Space for Photography Skylight Studio is one wintertime excursion you won’t want to miss this season.

Explore.org and the Annenberg Space for Photography have created a state-of-the-art exhibit at Skylight Studios in Century City where guests step inside immersive booths and surround themselves with the sights and sounds of nature cams. They can connect with nature by watching life unfold in real-time in the Live Cam viewing pod, and witness moments of raw, natural beauty in the Zen Den pod. Screens throughout the studio space show incredible scenes captured in the wild from Arctic foxes, to belugas, to polar bears.

The exhibit’s themes will evolve as the seasons do, beginning with a virtual trip to the Arctic as polar bears await the sea to ice over. Visitors can pose inside an Arctic-inspired photo booth featuring a life-size polar bear amidst swirling snow, and then share their photographs by tagging #explorepearls on Instagram and Twitter.

As a bonus, the arctic will invade the Westside with 100 foot-long Polar Bears roaming the night walls at 2nd Street and Santa Monica Boulevard, everyday from 6 to 11 pm, now until January 3.

Through its engagement with the natural world, the Pearls of the Planet live cam experience in Skylight Studios complements Annenberg Space for Photography’s exhibition LIFE: A Journey Through Time, a photographic interpretation of life on Earth from the Big Bang to the present by acclaimed National Geographic photographer Frans Lanting currently on view.

Explore.org is a philanthropic community created by Charles Annenberg Weingarten to champion the selfless acts of others and to provide a window on the world. The website is the largest collection of nature live cams in the world.

The Pearls of the Planet is a series of live cams connected around the world that allow you to observe the natural splendors of the planet.

Annenberg Space for Photography Skylight Studios is located at 10050 Constellation Blvd. Parking with validation is $3.50 Wednesday through Friday, and $1.00 on weekends.
