Downtown LA. MOCA.

Here we are ready for another adventure.
Me ready for the adventure. I am not sure about this color. Ochre. The pigment is one of the earliest ones used by mankind, derived from natural tinted clay. I guess it would work for the day... I feel pre-historic after this find.

You can observe here the ancient Ochre color brought together with a modern art steel piece. 

Fact of the Day~Early museums began as the private collections of wealthy individuals, families or institutions of art and rare or curious natural objects and artifacts. These were often displayed in so-called wonder rooms or cabinets of curiosities. Public access was often possible for the "respectable", especially to private art collections, but at the whim of the owner and his staff.~

Quote of the Day~All the sculptures of today, like those of the past, will end one day in pieces... So it is important to fashion ones work carefully in its smallest recess and charge every particle of matter with life. ~ Alberto Giacometti
