Resnick Pavilion opens at LACMA

The Renzo Piano-designed pavilion at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will open to the public on October 2.  Funded mainly from a $45 million gift from the philanthropists Stewart and Lynda Resnick, the 45,000 square foot space opens with three exhibitions:  1. Sculptures and vessels from Mesoamerican antiquity; 2.  Two hundred years of aristocratic clothing; and 3.  a selection of works from the Resnicks’ collection with a focus on French Rococo.  Read more about the inaugural shows in this LA Times Review.  And the review of the architecture here.

And finally, here is a cool interactive graphic of the whole LACMA campus.

    And don’t forget the opening gala where seats at the best tables went for $100,000 and Kim Kardashian and Christina Aguilera were invited guests!! Looks like LACMA was trying to top the Lady Gaga performance at MOCA last year…..
