Seeing the Light
Seeing the Light: Los Angeles
As our plane approached the LAX runway, we saw the light: a stark white, yellowish-green light special to this city. This light of David Hockney paintings washed over us as we traveled around for five days, taking in architecture, panoramic views, streetscapes, freeways. We took in six art museums, three progressive art galleries, one storefront event space (involving a lot of artists), one museum exhibition opening event, one artist's studio, one international museum web conference and a mystery theatre production in a basement. We learned a lot. Read more.
