After a morning of tutoring through AATP (Asian American Tutorial Project) and a dim sum lunch in Chinatown, I headed to LACMA (LA Museum of Contemporary Art) with some friends this Saturday for an afternoon of taking pictures and observing some photography exhibitions.
Easily getting there by bus, it wasn’t long before we saw the well known “Urban Lights” display outside the entrance. A picturesque art piece we saw three brides and wedding parties taking pictures as we took some ourselves and headed to the entrance.
For just a student fee of $10, we got to see the majority of the exhibitions, not to mention the architecture of the museum itself and the view we got from the top floors.
It was awesome to see timeless artifacts from southeast Asia to Greece to portraits from “Under the Mexican Sky.” My favorite was the “talk of the Town” by Edward Steichen that featured advertisements from Vogue, Vanity Fair and other big brands and magazines.
Not to mention, outside the exhibits, were cafes, restaurants and even live music playing. Great weather and art: who could ask for much more.
