Los Angeles Museum + Art Crawl #4: Getty Villa

MeFi L.A. Museum & Art Crawl Part 3: Watts Towers

Let's go to Watts Towers! The Watts Towers structure consists of seventeen major sculptures of steel, covered with mortar and embellished by decorative finishings of mosaic tiles, glass, clay, shells, and rock. This folk art employs assemblage construction. There are three tall spires, several small towers, two walls, gazebo, patio, ship, and other structures. In addition to the towers, the The Watts Towers Arts Center is the home of International Ethnic Instrument Collection consisting of 144 primarily non-western instruments collected from around the world.

Ars gratia artis!

After having so much fun at the recent Spaceship Endeavour! meetup, I thought I'd propose a similar venture to one of our grand LA art museums, choice and date TBD. UPDATE 5/4: It looks as if LACMA on June 1st will work out well for most. [more inside]

Slow Art Day in Salem, MA

International Slow Art Day is coming up on April 27th. It's a worldwide effort to have a different kind of art experience. The idea is to spend a couple of hours immersing yourself in just 5-10 works of art, and then meet up with individuals who have just done the same to talk about the experience. We're hosting Slow Art Day where I work, and Metafilter's own Lipstick Thespian is host. We thought it would be fun to invite MeFites to take part, and when it's all over, we can go out for a just-MeFite gathering over pints or such. [more inside]
