Adventures of a gay Internet Programmer in Southern California. I have enough wacky friends and hilarious stories to keep you interested, or at least mildly amused!
Rafael and BCAM @ LACMA
Rafael and I reconnected this weekend. It was nice to get things back to the way they were. Our relationship was strained over the last couple of months and I’m glad that we are able to reconnect again. We had brunch at Eat Well. It’s a great place for breakfast! The food is great, kinda healthy, and it’s gay gay gay! What more could you ask for.
After talking up a storm we decided to go check out his new apartment. Hopefully now that Rafael is living West Hollywood adjacent, we’ll be spending more time together. We used to do so many things together, but when he moved away that proved to be dificult! He didn’t quite know what part of town he was in and it turned out to be one of the best neighborhoods in LA! Rafael managed to get himself a studio in the Miracle Mile area! He is actually less than a block away from the LACMA west building! We couldn’t believe it. We checked out his apartment, which was very cute, and then we walked over to Wilshire Blvd.
Rafael told me he checked out the new addition to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) the BCAM (Broad Contemporary Art Museum). I’m a member and a huge supporter of the museum, but I hadn’t had a chance to see it. Since I get free tickets whenever I want to go to the museum for being a member, so we decided to stop in real quick. It was amazing!
The actual building is amazing! Once you get over how beautiful it is, the exhibits are truly magnificent. While I do love Classical Paintings and sculpture, there is something about Contemporary Art that is really exciting. It’s totally off-the-wall and amazing. My favorite artist on exhibit was the work of Jeff Koons. His work is amazing. He takes ordinary day things and makes them larger than life in materials that seem to betray their own properties! For example the balloon animal is made out of stainless steel!! Yet it looks so fragile!!! Amazing. If you are in LA you definately have to ! Check this exhibit out! Link in the bio.
