LACMA's New Building Rocks!

If you haven't been to LACMA's new building yet, try and make it down there soon. It's like a whole new LACMA. The new building is a huge 3-story space dedicated entirely to contemporary art (60's-00's). The top floor has an amazing Jeff Koonz exhibit as well as some Warhol, Lichtenstein, Ruscha and others. Then on the second floor there is a great Basquiat section and a Jasper Johns section. All my favorite artists, and it's all part of the permanent collection.

I also really like the way they've done the exterior - it's still work in progress with a little more landscaping left to be done. But I love the clean contemporary lines of the building, the colors, the shapes, and the way the lighting plays on everything throughout the day. Definitely worth a looksee!
