I went to Los Angeles for a week with my parents.
We visited some museums. We visited my cousin Kim,
who worked as a designer
at KAA. They'd recently designed a new bench which was
pleasantly proportioned and looked like it had some handy
storage. But I didn't take photos of that. Kim also got us
to visit an up-and-coming neighborhood in Culver City. I didn't
take photos of that, either. We went to a bunch of museums.
I took photos at museums.
Getty Villa: Gardens The Getty Villa has plenty of classical art but also some pretty gardens.
One large garden was surrounded by a covered walkway.
Getty Villa: Courtyard This small courtyard at the Getty Villa provided a fine place to sit down
and spend some quality time hunched over one's personal electronics.
Getty Center: Tram Station To reach the Getty Center (and its art), tourists can ride a little
tram, entered via a little tram station.
Getty Center: Gardens The Getty Center, in addition to its indoor art, has plenty of
gardens, themselves featuring a twisty bridge, planters made
of rebar, and stranger things.
Getty Center: Walkway The Getty Center's art is spread amongst multiple buildings.
Moving between exhibits might mean going outside.
LACMA Courtyard A few exhibits at LACMA were closed, but there were enough open
to keep us busy for most of a day.
LACMA Contemporary Building There was a relatively new building holding contemporary art.
Disney Concert Hall You might recall that a few years before,
seen some construction which was shaping up into Gehry's Disney Concert
Now we could see the finished building.
Museum of Contemporary Art We visited the MOCA, the MOCA Geffen, and the MOCA Pacific Design
Center--except that last one wasn't actually showing anything at the
time. I guess we should have called ahead.
