The experience challenges the current political climate by celebrating creative diversity, unity and the act of overcoming obstacles and challenges as a global society through sculptures, paintings, and video. I definitely suggest it if you are in the LA area!
It is my goal to visit every art museum in LA, so over the weekend I took a trip to The Broad. The Broad is a contemporary art museum on Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. I am a lover of the arts and avid supporter of anything that requires left brain activity. Art museums are so tranquil and definitely a positive source of inspiration. My favorite piece was Kara Walker's Africant. At first glance the images can be a bit vulgar but if you truly take time to gaze into the work you begin to see stories unfold of the horrid but REAL truth of a legacy of racism in America. Kara uses silhouetting to portray multiple symbolic images of sex and violence as a result of racism.
