Alex Freund: Art and Weirdness
1. Wacky Wacko - "How could you go wrong with a place called Wacky Wacko? Hand printed graphic tees, button downs & sweatshirts, among other unique and eccentric homewares. The unicorn head mounted above the front entrance is a good indicator as to what's inside."
1361 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
2. The Museum of Jurrasic Technology - "The perfect museum for an eccentric "post-truth" world. The museum features curiosities of ambiguous authenticity - stenographic radiographs of flowers, a survey of works by an obscure 15th century Jesuit polymath, an exhibition of art from Los Angeles trailer parks, a collection of microminiature sculptures each carved from a single human hair, among other oddities."
9341 Venice Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232
3. Arcana Books on the Arts - "A huge, world-class collection of art books on all subjects and genres. It can't be beat."
8675 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232
4. The Arts District - "Art everywhere! A bit like what SoHo used to be like."
South of downtown, from 1st street to 7th street, between Alemeda and the Los Angeles river.
5. The Broad - "A huge, airy environment to see a great collection of some of the best modern through contemporary artists out there. A great place to see Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Christopher Wool, Kara Walker, Cy Twombly, Robert Therrien, Cindy Sherman, Yayoi Kusama and others in an extremely well edited and displayed collection."
