Quick stop by Los Angeles last week!

But that wasn’t the actual reason for my absence here – we had yet another virus situation. There’s something wrong in our development that makes (we still don’t know how) all the plugins on our wordpress panel go away!

Drama… 🙁

There’s a bunch of people trying to solve it for me and my hands are tied, since there’s not much I can do… Just wait!It seems like we were able to solve it again! Let’s see…

Now let’s catch up on the news! 😉

Starting with MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, where I’ve been for the first time now and was just astonished!

I think I took me that long to go there because it’s in downtown LA. Kind of far away. Away from where stuff happens but close to the coolest art galleries. So this time I got my act together and off I went. Thank God I did so! I loved it!

The entrance is free. You just get there, wait in a small line and get in. Sweet. At least the day we went it was free. It was saturday!

There’s the museum, the MOCA Store and café Lemonade. Which means it makes for a delightful day!

The MOCA is the only museum in Los Angeles dedicated exclusively to contemporary art. And, I don’t know about you, but I’m crazy about contemporary art.

As soon as you get there you run into the infamous monumental stainless steel sculpture by GODDESS Nancy Rubins Mark Thompson’s Airplane Parts right there on the museum entrance square.

If you follow me on snapchat you got to see it, right?

From here you can get a bit of its dimension, size and beauty! That’s the great thing about snapchat… Being able to take you with me!

By the way, does anyone here not follow me yet? Huh?? Let’s make this up? My handle is julia-faria.

I digress…

There are a lot of post-1940 pieces by American and European artists. Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and George Segal’s pop art, Jackson Pollock’s abstract expressionism and Diane Arbus, Robert Frank and Lee Friedlander impressive photographs are just a few of MOCA’s treasures.

Paintings, photographs, videos, sculptures… Their hallways are full of life and many of them are interactive.

It’s a must-go if you’re in LA.


I really loved it!
