Los Angeles is a diverse City with so much to offer it’s locals and visitors, and it’s no wonder that there’s never a dull moment in the town on Hollywood. With the Mountains in one side and the Ocean on the other, Los Angeles has become a multicultural City full of rich and diverse customs.

And speaking of diversity, among one of the must go-to attractions in L.A. is the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). There’s something for everyone at LACMA, and most of the exhibits are free to the public, or there may be a small fee for special exhibits. LACMA has attracted famous A-Lister names, like Leonardo DiCaprio who has hosted galas there, and LACMA’s collaboration with Director Guillermo Del Toro for his At Home with Monsters exhibit that was featured at LACMA last year.

Among the Galleries and hands on art classes for kids, LACMA is rated one of the top Museums in California. The moment you walk into the see through elevator and ascend up to the ground level from the underground parking, you’re greeted with a sign that reads: Like, Man, I’m Tired (of waiting), and conveniently followed by an open bar, where guests can sit and enjoy a drink. Lets not forget the Urban Lights that’s always popular on Social Media.

Notable Past Exhibits

Some noted past exhibits that was featured at LACMA was that of artist Toba Khedoori—born in Australia, artist Toba Khedoori isn’t only breaking barriers as an Iraqi descent, but for Women artists as well. Residing in Los Angeles, California, Toba’s career notably kicked off in 1995 with solo exhibitions around the world. Her hand drawings and paintings have been showcased throughout other exhibits and getting the attention it deserves with her two and three dimensional drawings and paintings.

Another past exhibit that hung outdoors for many children (and adults) to run through, was the famous Meet Me By The Yellow Spaghetti by Jesús Rafael Soto’s— since 2011 his exhibit was one that could be touched, and kids could interact and run through the hanging spaghetti shaped art.

And of course, lets not forget the famous Rain Room—attracting the attention from even the Kardashians, the interactive Rain Room was widely popular. The room where rain falls but stops at the motion of ones body came to an end on April 2016. Though this exhibit was eventually donated to LACAM, though I’m still waiting to hear when and if they will reopen this exhibit.

Right next to LACMA, you will find the Brea Tar Pits, but keep your eyes open because you may catch sight of a dinosaur stuck in the pits.
