UCLA and Art LA in one Day

UCLA has an amazing sculpture collection throughout their campus. Here is a ceramic piece by
Peter Voulkos. He was one of the great California,abstract expressionistic ceramic sculptors.
UCLA has always had a strong ceramics and sculpture department. After all it is the home of Chris Burden's locker performance- installation.
Here is Mel outside the Broad Art Department building. Nice - Matisse bronze casts.
Richard Sierra Sculpture
Sculpture department - complete with a shower for rinsing off after full body casting.
UCSB didn't have one of those - we just used to rinse off in the Ocean!
Another view of the awesome Voulkos.
Last week went to UCLA and Mel showed us around the Art and other departments.
UCLA is looking good!

Here are some shots from opening night ArtLA at the Pacific Design Center- West Hollywood.
Really a fun- good vibe event. They even had papparazi - red carpet!
Really liked Javier Perez's booth. His gallery has a solid vision.
A Sterling Ruby from another gallery.
