I know it's a little unbelievable that three weeks later I'm still posting about L.A. but that's really just a testament to how many awesome things we did there. Our last night in town we went to LACMA, the L.A. County Museum of Art.
Outside there are lots of Eames wire chairs scattered about (a nice counterpart to MoMA's Bertoias).
Also in the courtyard is this sculpture, called "Urban Light," which consists of 202 cast iron street lamps that once were used in the streets of L.A. The Hipstamatic Dali lens does some crazy things to it.
After looking at the William Eggleston photo exhibit and thinking "what a great museum," we realized that there were quite a few more buildings to explore. We saw Andy Warhols, Alexander Calders, Richard Serras,
Giacometti sculptures, Paul Klees, Philip Gustons,
Henri Matisses, Ed Ruschas, Donald Judds, and on and on.
I took a lot of pictures of the "Fashioning Fashion" exhibit. It really photographed well.
And also from "Eye for the Sensual."
So I was pretty impressed with this museum. Nine buildings filled with ridiculously incredible art. And it's free during the week for California residents! (Which of course didn't help us, but just sayin...I can't think of any NY art museums on par with this one that are also free for locals.)
