k and i had a very special date night this week. d was working late, and e is up in the mountains with her class.
it was the opening of two exhibitions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art: Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s and Drawing In L.A. The 1960s and 70s. Both beautiful shows. (Great to see Moses at the opening.) The former full of gems I didn't know, and the latter many icons of L.A. art.
we started our evening with dinner at The Original Farmer's Market (sadly our favorite spot over there, Short Order, has closed). the Farmer's Market is always a good choice though, as there really is something for everyone. and the ice cream. oh the ice cream. we couldn't resist sharing a banana split from Bennett's
then on to LACMA - which, I think, is always extra special to visit in the evening. their courtyard is the perfect party spot.
Study of Man in the Phonebooth, 1969 by Charles Garabedian
and we had to deek out of the party and visit Chris Burden's Urban Light. so sad to learn this week of his death. he was an amazing artist, who i first discovered as an art student back in Manitoba. such an integral part of the Los Angeles "scene". he will be missed.
we are excited to return to LACMA next week, when his final work, Ode to Santos Dumont, 2015 debuts. it promises to be just as inspiring as his previous work.
this kid. so funny. so sharp. so much good energy. such a treat to have this one-on-one time with her.
