My visit to BACMA

I finally made it to the new BACMA wing of LACMA yesterday. It is pretty fun. There is a room dedicated to Jeffery Koons that seems to be channeling Warhol (in the next room), but his 15′ metal sculpture of an inflatable balloon dog is pretty happy and the large, shiny easter egg is very beautiful. There is on Tansey in the exhibit ( a long time favorite of mine) as well as a room of a couple  Richard Serra’s that are really delightful. You really need to be inside of it too. Also, there is a fun Chris Burden installation of city lights that you can wander in, but the 40′ long (more or less)  Koon’s toy fire truck has a fence around it, which I think is a waste of sculpture. I mean, it is just crying to be climbed on. Oh well.
