Art n Stuff - 52 project - Week 52!

Have you heard of The Broad yet?? Well, let me tell you a little bit about it.  The highly anticipated 'The Broad' Museum opened its doors exactly one month ago today, with free admission to its permanent collection. The Broad houses a nearly 2'000 piece collection of contemporary art, featuring 200 artists, including works by Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and my new favorite artist, Takashi Murakami.  There is a few installations there as well, one being Yayoi Kusamas Infinnity Mirrored Room - The souls of millions of Light Years Away. Which is truly something awesome! But make sure to arrive there early if you want to see it because reservations for the room fill up quickly and if you are not there in the first couple hours of opening, your ass will be out of luck. 

As soon as I could, I tried to reserve some tickets as there is limited reservations available each day. Earliest slot I could get was November 19th. TWO MONTHS! ugh... 
But last week I had an early meeting in LA with a mellow day afterward. So I went on a little solo adventure and tried to wait in line as a walk in. I arrived 30 mins before opening and had a pretty good spot about 40 people deep. But right before they opened the doors someone from the reservation line asked me if i was solo, to which I replied I was, and they gave me the lone extra ticket they had. I spent the next three hours enjoying all the rad art that was there. 

The Broad is definitely up there in my top favorite Museums now, maybe #2.   I don't think any museum will beat walking through the Van Gogh Museum on mushrooms in Amsterdam. That was a trip, literally! 

This post marks the end of my 52 project! Thank you for following along and reading my weekly stories, even if it was one or all of them. I appreciate it. Its pretty rad to look back and see your whole year in review with each weeks best moments, seeing my photography improve and learning many things along the way.  While it may not be every week, I will keep this going, so feel free to follow along. Thanks again!
