Here at Eat.Sleep.Work., we’re full of culture. 😉 We listen to NPR, sip tea with a pinky finger in the air, put on an accent when we pronounce foreign words, appreciate a good tennis match, attend the theatre periodically and tour impressive art collections whenever possible. We especially love it when we can do it for free.

Come Sunday,  January 28th you can visit a number of Los Angeles based museums without purchasing a ticket and we at Eat.Sleep.Work. decided to put together a list of the top masterpieces we think are worthy of checking out :

 

eatsleepwork-museum-chimmy

LACMA : “Metropolis II” Chris Burden

Chimmy : “A two story structure of art, movement, sound, and madness.”

 

eatsleepwork-museum-elisa

The Broad : “Balloon Dog (Blue)” and “Tulips” Jeff Koons

Elisa : “I chose Jeff Koon’s body of work because of its stunning reproduction of banal objects made out of stainless steel with mirror-finish surfaces. It’s fun, colorful and playful, yet delicate, simple and sophisticated.”


eatsleepwork-museum-chrissie

The Autry Museum in Griffith Park : Ted and Marian Craver Imagination Gallery Exhibition

Chrissie : “I’m a bit of an ‘Old West’-ophile. My fixation stems from the romantic ideology of the West as a place that’s perpetually TBD. It represents true freedom and pioneerism in the face of resplendent uncertainty. And all of its heroes are bona fide badasses.”

 

eatsleepwork-museum-michelle

Kidspace Children’s Museum

Michelle : “Looking for a fun family day with the kids? Visit the Greenhouse at the Kidspace Children’s Museum in Pasadena! Create new learning experiences and a great way to connect guests to the natural world.”

 

eatsleepwork-museum-silvana

Craft & Folk Art Museum : Melting Point

Silvana : “What makes this museum extra special is that you can see AND make art at the same time. Tying into their exhibitions, the museum coordinates a list of hands-on workshops led by professional artists and instructors.”

eatsleepwork-museum-shannon

The Museum of Contemporary Art : Permanent Collection

Shannon : “A wide collection ranging from large-scale installations to mixed media masterpieces. I guess you could say the work is raw and rare… 😉 ”

 

eatsleepwork-museum-raechelle

The Broad : “Your Body Is A Battleground” Barbara Kruger

Raechelle : “I learned about Barbara Kruger in college and she’s inspired my work every now and then. Not only have her works inspired me but also Shepard Fairey and many other street artists. Trends fade over time, but I love how her work is very contemporary and transcends to the present day.”

 

eatsleepwork-museum-jonathan

University Art Museum, CSULB : “Site Determined” Robert Irwin

Jonathan : “Interested in installation art and architecture? Visit the University Art Museum on the Cal State Long Beach campus (my alum) on Jan 28 at 4 pm to participate in the opening reception of Robert Irwin’s exhibit of his 4 decades of work called ‘Site Determined’. Some of his most notable works are the Central Garden at the Getty Center and his 10,000-square foot installation at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas.”
