LA Art Show via subway

LA Art show took place at the Convention Center....with art dealers from all over the country.

Traveling by subway was a easy enough jaunt - 3 stops, 3 subway changes, and four flights of stairs....through a maze of interesting art.

Conceptual artist John
Baldessari's keyboard
with bas relief was amusing.

F is for Finger as G is for Gun

As part of the visual landscape, planes and trains and commercial imagery plow themselves into our mental palette.

Well maybe for myself, not sure about you.

LA County Museum - Broad & Resnick additions

LA County Museum of Art (LACMA) is full of surprises.

Target is the sponsor on
holidays - so
it is a free
for all kind of day.

Music pounded in the plaza and kids kept the beat -

a la balloon play.

Resnick plaza's first show is Fashion of the 1880's -

quite a contrast to today.

Architectural lines are pleasing to the eye as old and new sections of the Museum are
positioned together...

a striking line going through is the "Renzo red" pillars accentuating the bold look to the new Eli Broad center.

Broad's art collection is housed there.

Bubbles the chimp and Michael Jackson are a crowd favorite.

Along the way sights of helicopters landing and wild mural scapes dot the horizon....

in a brilliant, 75 degree kind of way.

Balmy Beach and the Flight of Nuns

We've got the weather...

the runners, bikers and

wait for it....

Nuns make an appearance.

Everyone is communing in the wonderful sun and balmy skies.

Find yourself a little oasis and enjoy it!
