Kind of weird juxtaposition, huh…the colossal Olmec stonework and European fashions from 1700-1915 at the LACMA? I was blown away by both exhibits, and to see them side by side made the whole experience even crazier and more inspiring. From the minute detail and dainty frills of antique couture to the dimensions, weight and power of the Olmec works, I found myself weaving between the two exhibits marveling over each, comparing the architectural and structural similarities and the overwhelming textural differences.
One thing I do appreciate about living in a bustling city like L.A. is the opportunity to get out and go to museums and galleries often. It’s so important to remember that blogs are truly amazing, but nothing is more inspiring than going outside and getting offline inspiration.
While the Olmec Exhibit is now over, the Fashion exhibit is on view until March 27, worth a visit!
And speaking of this city that I call home, my man and I just signed a lease on a new home in the heart of it all- Downtown L.A. (we will be walking distance from the MOCA and Disney Music Hall!) I can’t wait to share all of the details with you– and yes, of course, photos, as we decorate and DIY-up our new home. Happy Wednesday, friends– thanks for stopping by!
