LA’s Glitter Shines on MONA’s Classic Neon Cruise

Discover LA by Metro:
Neon Cruise Highlights LA’s Glitter, Glam, and History



Did you know that the first neon sign in the USA was in LA?

If you’re looking for a Los Angeles bus tour that covers our city’s glamorous history, but isn’t one of those ubiquitous “tours of the stars’ homes,” then the Museum of Neon Art’s Classic Neon Cruise is for you.

The Classic Neon Cruises continue through the end of September, with a special Glendale cruise in October and holiday cruises in December and February.

“Art in the Streets” Closes August 8, 2011

Discover LA by Metro:
Last Weeks for MOCA’s “Art in the Streets” Near Little Tokyo/Arts District Gold Line Station

One fascinating aspect of this show is the selection of large installations, some created just for this exhibition. Street artists such as the redoubtable Banksy and Swoon, one of the very few women in this ultra-macho genre, who created the the amazing paper sculpture installation pictured at the top of this post, are exhibiting works that go well beyond painting on walls.

This exhibit is at the Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Little Tokyo through August 8.

We just had to pay a second visit before it closes, so we are glad to share more photos with you.

You can avoid paying admission Mondays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. thanks to Banksy, the British street artist.

Thursday evenings from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. are also free.

If the idea of paying to see graffiti seems strange, perhaps it is no more strange or controversial than the idea of staging a major art museum exhibition of graffiti and street art.

The strange reality of graffiti as fine art can be seen in “Art in the Streets,” which highlights the history of street and graffiti art at the Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Little Tokyo through August 8.

You can avoid paying admission Mondays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and see amazing street art thanks to Banksy, the British street artist, who stated: “I don’t think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it.”

Thursday evenings from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. are also free.
