Free Mondays from Banksy for “Art in the Streets” @ MOCA

If you haven’t yet stopped by to check out the historic Art in the Streets exhibition at the MOCA, now may be the perfect time. “Now” meaning today or any other Monday until it closes on August 8th as it will be free thanks to the sponsorship of Banksy. As he wryly states – “I don’t think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it.” Even if you have seen the show […]

LACMA Purchases Tony Smith “Smoke” Sculpture

Those who have visited LACMA the past couple of years have seen and walked around Tony Smith’s monumental sculpture Smoke.  The space that it inhabits in the Ahmanson Pavilion was actually redesigned (by Renzo Piano) specifically for the work. It would be unimaginable to think of the museum without the piece.  Today, you won’t have to.  The LA Times reports that LACMA has purchased it. The amount was not revealed, but it is said to exceed $3 million. It is insured for over $5 million, […]
