Took a field trip with my Design team to The Broad Museum this afternoon. I'm sure you've seen it already, or at least caught it somewhere on Instagram, but I walked into it with a fresh set of eyes, and this is how it looked from my end.
  1. Stairway to Heaven
  2. My Apparel Designer, Erica.
    One of my favorite parts of the gallery experience is observing the visitors. At a point, it seems like they're physically immersed into the art, by the way they dress, the color of their hair... I have a theory that people move towards the canvases that speak their language, so maybe that explains why the tie-dyed kid hangs out a little longer around the rainbow stuff? I dunno.
  3. Lots of Koons.
  4. I know
    A lot of the works have already been showcased at LACMA's Broad collection or other museums, but it's still powerful to see it in this beautiful new environment.
  5. Not a big Damien Hirst fan.
  6. AM a huge Kara Walker fan.
    Anyone remember her show at the Hammer?
  7. Lichtensteins
    Are so interesting up close.
  8. My favorite artist
    on display is Robert Longo. I've been following his work for years - I love the movement. His drawings feel like cinema to me.
  9. Barbara Kruger,
    The queen.
  10. Lots of cool Warhols,
    I'm always fonder of his non soupcan/Marilyn offerings.
  11. Cool soupcan, tho
  12. Nice transition to SAMO - Basquiat.
  13. I was a Murakami fiend in the early 2000s, but have fallen off the wagon over the years...
  14. Ruscha.
  15. Robert Therrien's "Under the Table"
    Talk about experiential.
  16. Keith Haring.
  17. Cy Twombly.
  18. The John Currin room was my favorite space.
  19. Glenn Ligon.
  20. I'm gonna stop talking now.

  30. I sarcastically called this the Fire Arcade, but Ragnar Kjartansson's "The Visitors" is a sweet and emotional send-off, and the appropriate bookend to a thoughtful experience.
    Walk in with an open mind, and expect to sink into the performance a good 10-15 minutes to get the full effect. Beautiful stuff.
  31. Visit The Broad!
  32. I know
    you're supposed to reserve months in advance or whatever, but you can also just show up on a weekday and walk right in. Takes a couple hours, top to bottom. Plus, everyone was beautiful (even the docents) and dressed up (for a Tuesday afternoon?), so if you're single and trying to get your Art on, you know where to go.
