Art in the Streets at MOCA.

Beauties by old favorites and gems by new friends. Way too much for one trip, thankfully we’ve got all summer to go back for more.

So the  MOCA‘s not always my favorite,  (Murakami, anyone?) but I headed over  to the First Thirty Years exhibit today and it was great. (Well, I went to the first half, up to 1979. The rest is at the Geffen in Little Tokyo. Apparently you can go to both on one ticket, but it has to be on the same day.)

The show was huge, and really diverse, no more than two or three  works from an artist, except for the big guys.  Just imagine starting with Rothko, ending with Arbus, and turning a corner to find  Joseph Cornell  in the middle. I started trying to pull some of my favorites to post here, but (as usual) the stuff I liked the best didn’t make the exhibit website and don’t particularly feel like scavenging around the interwebs to find it.

Instead, here’s my favorite work by someone I’d never heard of before the show. Lovely, no?
