Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles with the DTLA Bikes Fat Sally
The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) is home to almost 5,000 works of contemporary art. A current exhibit of note is the Gaetano Pesce: Molds (Gelati Misti) exhibit, which showcases the Italian architects’ resin, molds, and casting techniques; the exhibit expires on Nov 27th. Look forward to the upcoming exhibit Doug Aitken: Electric Earth, a collection of contemporary moving image installations, collages and drawings, architecture, printed matter, artist’s books, and graphic design. Electric Earth will run until January 2017.
Admission is free every Thursday from 5pm to 8pm, sponsored by Wells Fargo. Present your valid TAP card, Metro employee ID, or LA County employee ID at the MOCA Box Office to redeem two-for-one general admission.
The MOCA is in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, right next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and The Broad museum. It is off of South Grand Ave – a block away from the Civic Center and Metro Station.
Bike of Choice
DTLA Bikes just released the Fat Sally, a fat-tire commuter built with the LA streets in mind. It powers comfortable over bumpy roads and paths and has a wide range of gears for getting up steep LA hills. Rent one to explore the city at DTLA Bikes off Broadway downtown, and stop by The Broad and MOCA before heading back – just a few blocks away.
