LACMA | Los Angeles County Museum of Art

We visited the buildings and public art of LACMA as a continuation of our afternoon at the La Brea Tar Pits. Who knew modern art would be so enjoyable and appropriate as a rejoinder to prehistoric time travel. From Richard Serra’s elegant “Band” sculpture, the lines of William Periera’s architecture and Bruce Goff’s elegant, sweeping Pavilion for Japanese Art, to the “Urban Light” sculpture by Chris Burden and Michael Heizer’s “Levitating Mass” my brain reached for endless interpretions of the art. Therefore I highly recommend modern art for the brain, on the heels of thinking deeply about human beings’ role in mass extinction and climate change.
