Modernism on the Miracle Mile


OMG! Go see "California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way" at the Resnick Pavillion at LACMA. The exhibit opened last week and continues through March 25, 2012. I want to LIVE inside this exhibit!
I was there last week during the member's preview. Luckily, it wasn't too crowded and I could really see everything. This is part of the citywide Pacific Standard Time exhibit. Over 60 museums and art galleries, combined are participating in showing how California and the West Coast art scene was so influential to the art world. Most exhibits concentrate on the post WWII years, 1946-1976, but some shows have earlier and later examples of design from this prolific period.
So many different elements of modern design are represented....check these out:
