“A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed in light.” – Leonardo da Vinci
When you hear the word, museum, art comes to mind immediately. But the response towards it is not much unlike Disneyland. Why? People have the idea that once you’re in a museum, all you do is walk and look around. Right when you enter, you see these different kinds of art in different forms. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, crafts, photography, architecture and etc. Doesn’t sound too exciting right?
I don’t have any particular reason why museums sound boring to me. Hmm, maybe because I’ve never been to one? Well, that changed. . .
A friend of mine had a pass to this museum called, MOCA, which is located in DTLA, and she could bring in 6 people. So, why not? It’s free. We got to the museum and I gotta say it was pretty awesome observing different arts. I wondered how those artists have the time, patience, and dedication to make art. It may sound easy but, from what I saw, not even close.
Across the street was another museum called, The Broad. We didn’t have a pass this time so we had to wait in line for a few minutes. Of course, this museum was absolutely amazing just as MOCA. What did we do inside? Take pictures of course. That’s the only other thing you can do in a museum, so, why not right?
Word of advice? Bring your iPhones, DSLRs, polaroids and etc. DUH. It’s a museum. And please DO NOT FORGET your portable chargers, you WILL NEED them.
