I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon wandering around LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) to see Hearst The Collector and A Story of Photography: The Marjorie and Leonard Vernon Collection. Didn't have any major photographic equipment with me - just my pocket camera, a Sony T100 Cybershot, to grab these snaps.

LACMA reflected into another building across Wilshire.

The woman in the Vanity Fair banner is screen legend Gloria Swanson.

This display was a nice surprise - three German cars paying homage to the Art Of Two Germanys / Cold War Cultures exhibit. I believe this is the first time I've ever seen a Trabant in person. L-R: 1972 Trabant, 1969 Volkswagen Beetle, 1956 BMW Isetta.

The red and white Isetta looked very nice against BCAM's red pillars.

This is Chris Burden's "Urban Light" installation of vintage street lights outside of the BCAM (Broad Contemporary Art Museum) wing of LACMA.

We just went to LACMA too, although we missed the Story of Photography exhibit as well as the Hearst Collection. We did, however, catch the Vanity Fair photography exhibit, and Art of Two Germanys show in the Broad Center. Really good stuff.
