Best Art Gallery Visits in Los Angeles
We love art at The Box House. If you love art as much as we do, here is a list of our favorite places to go in Los Angeles:
Marciano Art Foundation
Located in a former Masonic temple in Mid-City, this is our favorite place to see art at the moment. Out of the multitude of art galleries and exhibits in Los Angeles, this one places an emphasis on hometown legends and up and coming local artists.
Hauser & Wirth
A cutting edge take on the arts scene and a definite must-visit. This gallery is a sprawling complex of viewing opportunities and is associated with a restaurant, outdoor garden, and one of the best art bookshops in Los Angeles.
This art institution, originally founded over thirty years ago, continues to be a prominent player in the exhibition of local contemporary art. Visit this art museum for a modern, minimalistic take on both art and architecture.
A scenery rich contemporary art stop known for their late-night openings, free libations, and an outdoor patio. Reviews praise its refreshing simplicity juxtaposed against the bustling location, both of which create a relaxing yet eclectic ambiance.
A migrating art installation. Look at their website (http://bbqla.net/) to find out where to find the next intriguing show.
Interdisciplinary, conceptual and though provoking art space. It displays works with a variety of subject matter and theme and many different mediums, including painting, drawing, installation, video, photography and sculpture.
Matthew Marks Gallery
Featuring the best of modernist and formalist works of painting, photography and sculpture.
Blum & Poe
A Culver City hot spot for art. After visiting this anchor of the arts district in Culver City be sure to visit our favorite art book store (Arcana: Books on the Arts). The best one two punch for any art junkie.
