Marciano Art Foundation

There’s a new museum in town and I got to see it last weekend courtesy of my friend Cathy who scored tickets and kindly invited me to come along. Like The Broad, tickets to Marciano Art Foundation are free but you need to reserve online in advance – new tickets are released on the 1st of every month. I looked through the museum’s website briefly before going and got the impression that the art pieces are a lot like those…

A White Romper & The Broad Part II

Sunday means another day of exploring! This morning I woke up at 5:55am to watch my hero Roger Federer win his 8th Wimbledon and 19th grand slam. I’ve been watching him play since 2005 and needlessly to say, I was absolutely overjoyed. The match was short and left me plenty of time to get ready for our visit to The Broad at 10am! We visited the museum last year (read here) but did not plan well enough to get into…

Sunday in Arts District

This last Sunday I got to explore the Arts District in Downtown LA, a small area right next to Little Tokyo. Its history as home to many factories in LA left numerous industrial buildings converted into art galleries, shops, and eateries. This was our first visit in…

A Day at LACMA

As Bank of America card holders, we get to visit LACMA for free during the first weekend of every month, and we finally took advantage of this sweet deal this past Saturday. I’ve gone to LACMA a lot more times than I’ve actually entered the exhibits. I’ve met up with friends at the cafe there, taken walks around the buildings and the Tar Pits, and even attended a free jazz concert in October. Like the Getty Center (which I visited…

The Broad & Walt Disney Hall

Last weekend I visited two of the coolest buildings in alllll of Los Angeles – The Broad and Walt Disney Concert Hall. Though both are impressive, they’re unique in completely contrasting ways, and not unintentionally. The Broad is porous and angled while Walt Disney Concert Hall is smooth and fluid. The main reason that brought me to the area was the Broad. Since its opening in September 2015, its popularity never ceased. Tickets are free but require advanced online reservation…
