Los Angeles County Museum of Art – Modern Art

Los Angeles County Museum of Art – Modern Art

Along the Stanley Kubrick exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, we decided to check out the rest of the museum. We bought a special timed ticket for the Kubrick exhibit for $20, which includes all of LACMA.

It’s a big museum, especially compared to the ones in Atlanta. Everything is spaced out, and I like big open spaces. Also, the public walking spaces are really nice.

Oh and these lamps at the front of the museum – they’re everyone’s favorite instagram / video spot!

I like random frames. What’s not to like?  I want these to be placeholders on my walls.

Sometimes I’m not sure that I understand modern art. But I do like how the book Steal Like an Artist put it: Modern art = I could do that + yeah, but you didn’t. This was a piece called Long Haired Cheese by Robert Gober.
