Blue Monday, Midweek Blues, Mellow Yellow & That's My World Tuesday / Urban Lamp Sculpture @ Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Los Angeles, California USA

These lamps are part of the 202 lamp posts that make up the Urban Lamp Sculpture at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
It's amazing to see day or night but, when lighted they are spectacular!
Children and adults like to run around chasing each other.

This little guy is running from his daddy!


There was quite a nice sky from this angle.
I wish I could have gotten on a roof for another perspective...but...

This would be magical to see, day or night. I wish we had more decorative lamp posts today.

Linnea said...

This is awesome! Never seen anything like it. Your photos of the display are terrific. Each one shows a different side!

I'd like to know why anyone would think of making 203 huge street lamps. How would you know ahead of time how beautiful they'd be against a darkening sky? I guess artists don't think the way I do. ;~)
I love the last two shots of them, but it's interesting to see them beside people (large and small).

I like the last photo the best, but I laughed when I read that you wanted to get on a roof for another perspective.

Look is disceiving. With out photo two, you think they are small lamps.

Did they have a pattern? I mean if you look from above t, what do they look like?

Very unusual as a sculpture! Especially love the last 3 shots:)

Rebecca said...

That is fascinating. It is so cool you can interact with the sculpture like that too. It must be very cool to see it in person.

Kathy said...

What an amazing exhibit. I didn't even notice the tiny people in the first shot so I was pleasantly surprised to see how tall these things really are in the second one! Great captures.

Greyscale Territory said...

A very beautiful display of lamps! Love all the different perspectives you have captured! The second last one is like a fascinating tall forest of lamps!

Kerry said...

I hadn't heard of this place before, and I think it looks super cool. A great place to run away from daddy!

James said...

That is so cool! I like these shots. I bet it was fun taking them. :)

I love the perspectives of the second and fourth shots!
What an awesome exhibit. I think I'd have wanted to stay around there for awhile.
