- “The new grounds initiative was designed to unify and revitalize the Blanton campus through architectural and landscape improvements and art.
- Three stories tall, 12 eye-catching “petals” shade the Moody Patio and the Museum Drop-Off. Look up to see hundreds of perforations in each structure. Look down (on sunny days) to see the dappled shadows they cast.
- Cool fact: rain falling into the petal funnels is routed to an underground collection system.”
- “This exhibition explores the rich world of the supernatural in ancient Maya art, through 200 works from LACMA’s notable collection — including ceramic vessels and figurines, and greenstone jewelry from present-day Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. These ancient artworks showcase how artists portrayed the supernatural world and how royalty acquired and displayed their own supernatural power.
- For the ancient Maya, the natural world was both a source of nourishment and danger. From the sun to wildlife to maize crops, forces of nature manifested supernatural beings that were inseparable from their lives.”
- The Blanton presentation is organized by Rosario I. Granados, Marilynn Thoma Associate Curator, Art of the Spanish Americas.
- On view until January 7, 2024
