LACMA: California Design Exhibit
This weekend I finally got a chance to go see the Tim Burton exhibit at the LACMA and it was super cool. Being a fan of his films for a long time, it was a great experience to see some of the concept sketches and production details involved with his work process. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't already. Word of warning though...try to go on a weekday. We had to wait in long lines for most of the exhibit.
While at LACMA, I snuck a peek at the new design exhibit that just opened this weekend. "California Design, 1930 - 1965: Living in a Modern Way" is a collection of works from various artists in California that helped shape, and continue to influence, the way we look at modern art and design. It is part of the Pacific Standard Time series (read more about it HERE) and has a diverse selection of furniture, products, textiles, ceramics, and graphic design from the era. Along with many other people these days, I am completely obsessed with mid-century design. The streamlined furniture, the colorful teals and oranges, and well...basically everything about it. I can't wait to check out this show! It runs through March 25th so I've got some time.
