The Broad Art museum

Oh em gee. This is the longest I've been without saying a word on here. I can't even believe how fast time is going by. I have been so preoccupied with art projects and of course stressing out about how my artwork never seems to be as good as everyone else's (FYI, these thoughts consume me mostly when I am stressed and overwhelmed by deadlines- you know how it is). 

So... if you live in California or especially LA and you care anything about art (or even if you don't), you may have heard about the recent opening of the Broad Museum. I hadn't a clue about it (the extent of my knowledge in modern art is zero to none as is my interest, to be honest.). Still, when the opportunity presented itself for me and my fellow peers in the art department to take a trip to the Broad (as the locals call it), I immediately grabbed the chance. I hadn't been to LA in a really long time and I don't know if I've mentioned this before but I sort of have a love/hate relationship with the city (and cities, in general). Basically, I hate the chaos of cities but love what they have to offer (plenty of arts/culture, dining, entertainment...basically everything that small towns lack). 

So, my thoughts on the museum. I don't know, I mean, I can definitely appreciate what the Broad is - the artwork and what it has to offer but when it comes down to it, I guess I'm just not really a modern art kind of girl. I mean, it's like, I get it...but sometimes I just don't GET it. I think I prefer a Monet scenery or something with a pretty but colorful feel. Just me, I'm sure. 

That said, I'd definitely recommend a visit if you're in  the area (the exterior building itself is enough to captivate your attention)- after all, admission is free despite the supercalafragelisticexpialadociously long waiting lines. Oh, and before you ask, nope, I didn't see the infinity room (the best and most popular attraction at the museum, from what I've heard). There was a long waitlist and even though I had time to wait, I took to exploring downtown LA instead. I don't regret my decision. I spent a lot of time at the Walt Disney Concert Hall (such a beautiful building even though I'm not usually drawn to modern architecture) - I hope I can see a symphony there someday soon- can you imagine how dreamy that would be? 

So I was wondering, have you been to an art museum? What's your favorite type of art?
