I went to see the exhibit on Saturday.  Didn’t realize all the banking protests were going on just a few blocks away, which made for more traffic than you’d expect on an early Saturday, but I digress…

I made it just in time for the guided tour, which really added to the experience because you learned the context of how some of the truly exquisite pieces were acquired by the museum.  It’s wonderful that such a resource is available on the grounds of the FIDM campus.  The students can just mosey on down and be inspired on their lunch breaks.

No photos allowed.  😦  but please check it out when you’re in LA.  Oh, and it’s frickin’ free.  I did shell out $92 for the complete collection catalog.
