LACMA: Contemporary/Pop Art

Mood: Relieved
Playing: Rise Above-Reeve Carney Feat. Bono and The Edge (I'm going to start linking the song I'm listening to it, so it's easier for you to listen to it, if you like.)
Do any of you remember how I went to LACMA before? If not, click here to freshen up your memory. My favorite part of the museum was the Contemporary/Pop Art building. It housed Warhols and so many cool things, so I thought I'd share a few pictures with you.
This was the main entrance, I believe. I liked the giant balloon animal and I remember seeing something like that in a fashion magazine, when I was little. All of the art here was really modern and very brightly colored. Therefore, making it my favorite.
I've always liked lights and signs because they come in such wonderful colors. At first, I failed to see what it said, but I like the "Last Chance Lost" sign now that I see it. It's ironic how it's a rather sad phrase, yet it's in such happy colors. I guess the slightly run down motel look of it makes up for that.
I loved these lit up boxes with the wires hanging out, but I was one upped by a guy. He brought in his ultra clear, high mega pixel camera to take pictures of this and I'm there with my camera that acts up in bad lighting. Haha, oh well...I think it'd be cool to have this just sit in the corner of your bedroom or in the center of your living room.
I liked this piece. The colors changed and different words were lit up as it changed. It reminded me of this book, where the main character was talking about how he'd fall asleep to neon lights twinkling outside his window...
I really don't have much to say about these pieces, other than I found them interesting and in the case of the last one, humorous...I heard there's a Tim Burton exhibit going on at LACMA and I'm dying to go. I love that man's work, so I think it would be great to get to see all of his work. By the way, I spent yesterday watching this video because I love listening to their great accents!
What have you been up to this summer?
