Art & Architecture in LA
With a variety of art and architecture styles, Los Angeles is a mixing pot of high culture and innovative expression. A walk through Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) could double as an Art History course, while the studios and galleries of Culver City cultivate new alternative artists. Nostalgic Hollywood landmarks contrast with recent architectural feats and quality street art is always a nice surprise while wandering.

Friday Night Jazz at LACMA

Large arrow left

On Friday nights the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) hosts live jazz from April to November each year. Jazz at LACMA has run for more than 20 years, and many L.A. residents consider it a must-do in the area. More than 42,000 people attend the free event each year, where artists like Wayne Shorter, Billy Childs, the Cannonball-Coltrane Project, and Ernie Watts have showcased their talents.

After the show, I recommend heading over to Rays for Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Located on LACMA’s campus, Ray’s menu is constantly shifting to take advantage of seasonal fare and new ideas. Their crispy pig ears are one of my favorite dishes.
