- Since its installation at LACMA in 2008, Chris Burden's Urban Light has become an icon of Los Angeles. Yet less is known about the streetlights themselves: who made them, where they came from, and where they can be found today.⠀ "Urban Light: A Field Guide" explores the histories of each of the 16 streetlight models represented in the sculpture.⠀ ⠀ Written by historian India Mandelkern (@newarabella) and illustrated by artist @didi_beck, this 24-page booklet takes readers on a streetlight scavenger hunt throughout L.A. County.⠀ ⠀ Here's a quick video of the behind-the-scenes process. The field guide is currently available at the LACMA store and Art Catalogues at the museum. #UrbanLightTurns10

- It's your last week to see “A Universal History of Infamy,” on view until Feb 19. Check out works by artists like Vincent Ramos. "RUINS OVER VISIONS OR SEARCHIN’ FOR MY LOST SHAKER OF SALT (ANTE DRAWING ROOM)/ RUINAS SOBRE VISIONES O BUSCANDO MI SALERO PERDIDO (ANTECÁMARA DEL SALÓN)” is an “anteroom” created out of cast-off theatrical backdrops salvaged from local high schools. Ramos populates this mini-museum with images of both Mexican American pop-culture icons, including singers with Anglicized names, and performers like Mary Tyler Moore and Bill Dana, who masqueraded as Latinos in the media. #LACMAPlusYou regram via @amrammmm⠀

- We had the honor of celebrating the 10th anniversary of "Urban Light" with some of LA's own luminaries. Pictured here, from left to right: Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director; Nancy Rubins, Mayor Eric Garcetti @mayorofla and @leonardodicapriofdn Chief Executive Officer Terry Tamminen. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Thanks to @leonardodicapriofdn all 309 incandescent light bulbs were replaced by LED bulbs, resulting in an energy reduction of approximately 90%. Over the next ten years, the energy saved will be enough to power 295 American households while also preventing the release of over 5 million pounds of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent. That’s like taking 500 cars off the road in one year. 💡#UrbanLightTurns10 John Sciulli © Museum Associates/LACMA

- Greetings from the @Hirshhorn! We’re taking over LACMA’s Story to explore #MarkBradford’s work on the East Coast, “Pickett’s Charge”! ⠀ ⠀ The monumental work features eight canvases that stretch across the entire inner-ring gallery, Bradford drew inspiration for this new work from French artist Paul Philippoteaux’s nineteenth-century cyclorama, “Pickett’s Charge” —the final charge of the Battle of Gettysburg, which historians cite as the critical turning point of the Civil War and, consequently, of American history. Working with a combination of colored paper and reproductions of the original, Bradford transformed the historic Gettysburg imagery. The resulting work weaves past and present, illusion and abstraction, inviting visitors to reconsider how narratives about American history are shaped and contested.

- Ruben and Elena often come to LACMA for Jazz. They took their first photo with "Urban Light" in 2011. We invited them back to celebrate the anniversary of this iconic piece. Swipe to see the original photo 👉 "When we took this picture we had just moved in together after being together for two years, with extended periods of long distance as we were pursuing our own projects. I think you can see our excitement for what was coming ahead in this new stage in our life!" - @rubenhornillo ⠀ #UrbanLightTurns10 ⠀ ⠀ Image commissioned on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Urban Light at LACMA: Photo © Siri Kaur, Artwork © Chris Burden/licensed by The Chris Burden Estate and Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.⠀
