We’ve been getting questions about the types of excursions students will be going on in Contemporary Los Angeles Art, so instructor Brenda Williams has provided us with the itinerary for the first meeting. Take a look to see the first class adventure!
Our first stop will be to visit the Underground Museum in Mid-City. The two year old museum was the brilliant idea of the late Noah Davis, his wife Karon and his brother Kahlil Joseph. As artists they decided to create a neighborhood museum for people who may be too intimidated to visit the established museums, to view works of art by major contemporary artists. Most folks can walk here. There are late night movies, artists talks, star gazing and a really nice garden to sit in and contemplate life.
We’ll get acquainted in their garden, followed by a walkthrough of the current exhibition: Non-Fiction: William Kentridge and Karon Davis.
Lunch at Juicy’s (Naturaliart) Jamaican Restaurant. This is as traditional as you can get this far away from the Caribbean.
After we’ll visit a few west side galleries.
