Art in the Streets

Monday was my first official day of vacation. On Mondays in July, the artist, Banksy has offered free admission to "Art in The Streets" at the Geffen Contemporary Museum at MOCA, downtown L.A. Larry and I picked up our pal, Natalie and zoomed downtown yesterday morning. I would definitely recommend checking out this exhibit. It's really overwhelming and awe-inspiring! It's not only examples of contemporary graffiti and street art, there are street installations and blocks of urban areas erected inside the museum. During the weekends there are skateboard demonstrations and more. I felt like we were actually walking down city streets filled with interesting and artistic graffiti. You MUST see this show!

After roaming thru the Museum, we headed down East First Street to a ramen place in Little Tokyo called DaikoKuya . Natalie suggested it. We each had the special ramen. It was heavenly. Afterwards, we headed over to the original Yogurtland location for dessert.
I'd heard about an all acrylic Mexican yarn shop near the Garment District, so since we were close by, we hunted for the shop. We finally found it on south Los Angeles street. I picked up some sport-weight rayon in a beautiful olive green color. I'll definitely return to this shop in the future. You do have to purchase an entire bag of one color...12 skeins. So, if you want different colors, it's good to take a few friends and trade skeins. One 12 skein bag of 350 yard skeins each only cost $24!!

It was a rather successful field trip! Thanks, Natalie and Larry for the great day!
