After experiencing amazing art from Tim Burton and Ai Weiwei (see previous blog post), we checked out even more great stuff at LACMA (LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART). We went into another cool exhibit called CALIFORNIA DESIGN, featuring modern art and design spanning between the 30s and 60s.
Missy loves AIRSTREAM trailers and this shiny one was no exception:
This vintage cardboard BARBIE DREAM HOUSE is cooler than any Barbie playset ever made since:
After we looked at the California Design exhibit, we took a tour of some of LACMA’s permanent collection. One room had these enormous RICHARD SERRA sculptures. They were so big you couldn’t even really photograph them, just photograph being IN them:
Another room had all these amazing JEFF KOONS sculptures, many of which we had only previously seen in text books and magazines:
In another part of the museum was an exhibition featuring a retrospective of work by the latino art collective known as ASCO:
Before leaving LACMA, we played around in the FOREST OF STREET LAMPS installed just outside the museum:
We capped the night off heading over to Japantown, looking for a place to have dinner, but not before getting a bunch of treats to take back home with us.
We saw this restaurant called MADE IN MOM…i think something got lost in translation:
Couldn’t help but stop in and get MACARONS from this hip little place inside the mall:
I bought this funny EATING UTENSILS KIT from the japanese “dollar store” in the mall there…how could I not? Look at how sad those kids look!
Lastly, we couldn’t resist getting cream puffs from BEARD PAPA’S…especially with the HELLO KITTY crossover promo they had going on:
