I was driving through Long Beach recently and took a wrong turn (thanks, Google Maps). It’s okay that I got lost though, because I stumbled across this neat little sculpture garden located in the middle of a residential area. It was unfortunately closed at the time, but I was still able to peek in through the fence:
While out on the road, I’ve been known to pull over just so I can see (and more often than not, take a picture of) something that catches my eye. Los Angeles has murals galore! I spotted these murals a couple weeks ago, and it’s safe to say that both have me itching for summer.
I’m back with more photos from Skirball Cultural Center! Most of these are from the Visions and Values exhibit (it’s a massive collection). I learned so much about Jewish life, culture and history. It was all so beautiful!
This grandma. She’s SO adorable:
I recently saw a banner for the pop art exhibit at Skirball Cultural Center (Roy Lichtenstein, to be exact). My mind immediately flashed back to undergrad, where I took a bunch of art history classes – one of which was a modern art course. I just had to see a real Lichtenstein piece in person! Way better than a textbook picture, right?
I took this picture because I thought he looked cute, hah.
Bixby Knolls is a charming little neighborhood in Long Beach. Last time I was in the area, I noticed some interesting street art (and had to snap some pictures):
I think this mural is so neat. It’s located adjacent to a computer repair shop on Atlantic Ave.
Behold: the last of my photos from the Bowers Museum. This was probably my favorite exhibit (Spirits and Headhunters: Art of the Pacific Islands).
Oh and yes, that is a necklace made of teeth. Human teeth. Yikes.
I’m back with more photos from the Bowers Museum! This batch is from their Ancient Arts of China: A 5000 Year Legacy exhibition. It’s crazy to see all the pottery, clothing, etc. that survived from hundreds (and thousands!) of years ago. But I’ll let you have a look for yourself:
