Like modern art? Then go to LACMA!

I went with two friends yesterday to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA),, specifically to see its newly installed Modern Art collection. It took us at least two hours to gaze at the art, listen to the commentary, and soak in the works by mostly familiar artists from the 1900 to the 1960s. There were concentrations of work by Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Kathe Kollwitz and other not so well known women artists, Diego Rivera, amongst wonderful examples of  paintings, sculptures, assemblages, wood cuts, lithographs, and drawings.

I urge you to go – even if you’re not in the neighborhood. It’s well worth the trip. And it’s well worth your aching feet and back when you leave the scene.


Georgia O’Keefe. Just a teaser. This piece was not at the exhibit.

      Hockney’s Mulholland Drive – in the exhibit

I, for sure, am going back.  There is so much there to revisit – over and over. Maybe someone out there wants to join me.
