Zac had an extra credit assignment in his Math class over the weekend that he could do. He’s looking for all the extra points he can round up, so we decided to take him. Saturday didn’t happen because Ron and I decided to spring clean (including shampooing the couches, pillows, carpet in our bedroom, etc.) to help with the allergies in our house. So Sunday we decided to go to the museum … on Easter. Here’s a picture of Ron and Zac out front with the streetlight exhibit – not sure what that is about … but it was cool – haha.
I didn’t know that if you go after 5 pm, it’s free to get in. ROCK ON!! We spent a couple of hours there. First we went to the check out the exhibit that had geometric shapes. He was supposed to check them out and choose one that he liked, then answer some questions about it, etc. He chose this cool one that was called, I think, “Big Blue”. As we were standing there, I asked if there was any way we could take a picture for a school project (without the flash). At first, the security guard said no, but then, as he heard us talking about the piece and it’s dimensions and Zac said that he’d sketch it, he said, ok, hurry up and take one without the flash- haha. So I did … with my blackberry phone (so really, it’s not the greatest).
After that, we went through the Japanese art section and then on to Contemporary Art. I loved the giant Baloon Dog and the Cracked Egg display – those were fun. No pictures there though – haha.
We ended up staying until about 7:30 and really only left before they closed because we hadn’t eatten dinner yet.
A picture of the three of us before we left … me … no make-up.
I loved the lights when we came in … but they looked even cooler at night when they came on … check this out …
Not the traditional Easter we’re used to (usually we head to Visalia to be with family), but it was still kind of fun to do something totally different and out of the ordinary.
The only thing I’d change at LACMA if I ran the zoo would be to make postcards of the geometric exhibit so that kids could take them home when they are working on projects. THEN you wouldn’t have to try to sneak to take a picture (I’m sure not ALL the guards were as nice).
