Lacma Lights, Los Angeles County Museum Of Art
The nine pavilions of the largest art museum on the American West Coast are distributed in an area of 200,000 m². After going through a major renovation (not yet finalized), the lacma lights – Los Angeles County Museum of Art has become a reference both in architecture and in importance of the collection. The works are as varied as the social formation of Los Angeles. American, Japanese, Korean, Latin American, European and other works make lacma lights a very eclectic museum.
With works dating from 10,000 BC to the most contemporary artists, the lacma lights museum is an obligatory stop for fans of the most varied arts. The space presents, besides the permanent collection, itinerant exhibitions of special subjects. Among the main artists of the museum are: Rembrandt, Thomas Lawrence, Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, David Hockney, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Frida Kahlo, Roy Lichtenstein, Tony Smith, Charles Eames and Andy Warhol.
Despite the incredible collection, the most photographed works are outside the buildings. Among the innumerable light poles, tourists circulate in search of the best angle. It is the work Urban Light, by Cris Burden, that gives lacma lights its identity. Another external show is Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass. The 340-ton stone, placed on a catwalk, causes a mixture of curiosity and fear in the pedestrians who risk their way.
