  • If you're anything like me, you leave certain museums feeling especially inspired to create, make, and do something special. You realize that truly, nothing is off limits to your creativity. I always walk out of The Marciano Art Foundation in Los Angeles with that skip-in-my-step feeling! It's housed in a gigantic former Scottish Rite Masonic Temple, so you can't miss it! The foundation was created by philanthropists, founders of GUESS and art loving brothers, Maurice and Paul Marciano to showcase contemporary works from mostly living artists. I love that mission! So many artists are only celebrated and supported when they've passed away, so it warms my heart that they search for emerging and local artists to celebrate. This museum just feels like a celebration and you're invited to the party, friends!! How much is admission? Well, so glad you asked! It's completely FREE. Yes, free! Zilch! Zero! Thank you, art philanthropy! All you have to do is make an advance reservation on their beautiful website. Pro Tips: - Schedule an appointment online in ADVANCE so you can gain free entry! - Block 4 to 5 hours to wander around and enjoy this place to its potential
  • Huge modern art museum that also features a lot of LA or California based artists. Building used to be a Masonic temple so there's an archive room dedicated to that part of its history. REALLY fascinating seeing real Masonic artifacts up close.
