I always like discovering a “new” museum when I head to Southern California and also appreciate my NARM privileges. Today was my first visit to the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach. The Nickolas Muray photos of Frida Kahlo are stunning. It is a small how, but that alone was worth a visit to the museum. Before today, Frank Romero’s art was something I only really knew from books and online. It was great to see a large-scale retrospective of his diverse body of work. Check out the links for both shows.
There are plenty of big name museums in the Los Angeles area, but it is always worth exploring some the smaller ones as well, today’s trip to Long Beach was a good example.
