I did pick up some fun new things:
Today I went to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for a school project where I was to view paintings of children to help me write an analysis of how those children were portrayed contrasted to the Approaches to Adolescence concepts I've been learning in my summer class. It was a great visit and I appreciate the assignment but it was so difficult to walk around LACMA without stopping, drooling and pondering about many other artworks. As I was with others I did not have the luxury to take my time but I hope to get back there again before the summer ends.
Totally by chance, Levitated Mass by Michael Heizer formally went on display yesterday on the LACMA grounds and of course I had to walk over and take a look. Yes, it is huge - at 340 tons how could it not be. Was it a waste to truck this megalith 105 miles from the Jurapa Valley in Riverside County to Los Angeles? Levitated Mass never took the freeway on it's journey - it traveled on side streets the entire way by night and even came very close to my own home. A lot of controversy surrounded the move with many of the opinion of what a poor choice of resources it was to move a rock. What do you think?
