Places to see, hmmm, the museum of Jurassic Technology is definitely a must,
as well as the Center for Land use interpretation.
I would also recommend the usual art places like LACMA (Los Angeles County
Musueum of Art), MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art). The Museum of art and
television in Beverly Hills is also very good, although not much better
than NYC's, still just to take a look at the architecture is worth it.
If you are interested in the usual art scene, I also recommend visiting
Bergamot station in Santa Monica, to get a feel for the art in Lalaland,
as well as the Chinatown galleries, which is where c-level and electronic
orphanage are located. I think there is not much going on there at the
moment because of summer, but c-level (http://www.c-level.cc/
) usually have
events, and should have some going on next week. You can also contact
them and just hang, they are really cool. More stuff: Wilshire art complex
(6150) Wilshire. (I do not want to sound like a gallery freak, I actually
have not been to openings for a looonnnng time... but being from out of
town is often the thing to do.) If you really want to do the gallery scene,
just pick up a gallery guide.
I actually lived in Los Angeles, although I recently moved to San Diego,
which is about 2 hours driving time. I am in Los Angeles quite a bit regardless.
I would be interested in meeting you, if you happen to be in Los Angeles
on a weekend. If you are interested, please let me know and I will send
you my personal contact info.
