Los Angeles has become a “cultural” city as more and many artists have spread their wings in the city of angels in 2017.
The Institute of Contemporary Art is the new, free, museum in Downtown LA. It is exhibiting until the end of the year Abigail DeVille ‘s work “No Hidden Space (Shelter)”. Abigail “acts as an archaeologist, collecting and re-purposing found materials to give physical presence to unspoken histories and forgotten pasts”.
After its lunch in 2016 in New York, this unusual museum is coming to LA from April 22nd to May 19th. What a crazy and amazing idea to dedicate a museum to one of my weaknesses, the ice cream. It will also be the occasion to get lost in different “ice creamish” rooms , jump in a pool of Sprinkles and you will get to taste new flavors curated by the museum.
After New York, Refinery29 brings its “interactive fun house of style, culture, & technology” to Los Angeles with this year’s theme being Turn It Into Art where each room is inspirational in its own way.
The Exhibition at the specialized art gallery celebrates the artist. The many works pieces at display pay tributes to the genius of Warhol The picture station even allows you to channel your inner Warhol. A must stop place for all the Warhol lovers.

Once you open the door of that old building, at the end of the Produce Market courtyard, the gold stairs, the Stairway to Heaven, will take you upstairs to the studio.
