Weekend Adventures in LA

There was another road trip to LA - a whirlwind of friend time, museum hopping, and run time.

I managed to fit in exhibits at The Hammer Museum, The Getty Center and LA County Museum of Art (LACMA). A visit to the Craft and Folk Art Museum was planned, too, but I simply ran out of time and energy. So many museums, so little time....

Each museum visit deserves it's own separate post. This post covers some of the fun, food, and my ritual run from Korea Town to LACMA.

Spinning at The Hammer Museum

Have you tried the Magis Spun Chair designed by Thomas Heatherwick? This was the first item on my list of fun at the Hammer Museum in Westwood where I met my LA friend V for lunch. V introduced me to The Hammer Museum several years ago, so it's our favorite place to visit together.

The Spun Chair is described as a "melding of function and fancy". I do need a chair in the living room - perhaps I should get one?

Healthy Eats

As it was a short trip, there weren't many meals and most were vegetarian. Decidely healthy! Both Sat. and Sun. lunches were at the museum cafes/restaurants which were excellent and reasonably priced.

K-Town to LACMA Run

Morning runs are great. The light is perfect and if you frame the photo  just so, it turns out nice. The architecture along Wilshire Blvd is varied and impressive. Even the Denny's and Staples are special!

I took a few pics at the La Brea Tar Pits, stopped by Donald Judd's concrete installation, then wound my way to NuMu by the Renzo Pavillion.

The turnaround point at LACMA is the massive Levitated Mass. At 9a on a Sunday, you have the pathway to yourself!
