this past sunday, the kids, my mom, and i ventured over to LACMA (los angeles county museum of art). i've lately had this growing and deep desire to expose the kids to contemporary art museums, but wasn't sure if their attention span could handle the excursion. under the encouragement of lauren, noreen, and erin, i went for it. i figured the earlier we start, the better. i really want the kids to grow up with a love for art. surprisingly, we were able to see most of the museum, both the permanent collection and special exhibits, like wonderland, metropolis, and california design. we even had lunch at ray's! now that i know the kids can enjoy themselves, we will definitely plan a return with family and friends in tow. whose down?
at the gift shop outside of the california design exhibit, it was hard not to buy everything in the store. using some restraint, i picked up the two arts & architecture prints above. i'm thinking i will pick up some ribba frames from ikea. what do you think, should i do black, white, or maple frames?
ps~hey everyone, thanks for popping by yesterday to let me know what you do when your spirits need lifting. there was some really great advice and suggestions in the comments. i'm adding the support of a great community to the list. :)
