Public art. We love it.
Ever walked up to an L.A. museum or gallery & thought, whoa, cool, what IS that?
They constantly surprise us with their outdoor artwork. Almost as though the exhibits inside are spilling out into public spaces – to share with the entire neighborhood.
Years ago, Taschen featured one of our favorite bands, the Rolling Stones, in a photography exhibit.
Even after checking out every single piece inside the gallery, we spent just as much time outside the gallery taking photos.
We couldn’t help ourselves because we saw cats along the sidewalk, cheeky billboards messages & Taschen’s wall (of course).
We still look back at these pics & think, “wow it doesn’t look like that anymore, & it may never again”…
Glad we saw it when we did.
We got a chance to check out the Museum of Ice Cream in the arts district & as rad (& instagrammable) as it was inside, the art outside & in the surrounding neighborhood was pretty awesome, too.
Since it’s constantly changing, we don’t want to miss out.
MOCA’s outdoor murals always surround their museum, too.
Within ten minutes, you can grab a coffee at G&B, take a ride up Angels Flight, check out the outdoor murals at MOCA (& pop in for a museum visit of course, too). If you plan ahead, you could pop into the Broad, too
By the time you read this we’re pretty sure that something else will have popped up, too.
Keep us posted on what you see or even send us pictures!
