For those of you that live in the Los Angeles area, I just took my 5th graders to see some massive, amazing wall hangings of El Anatsui at the Fowler Museum on the UCLA campus. They are just fantastic to behold. The Fowler has a show up right now of contemp. African artists plus a new show of Sri Lankan masks. Both shows at very good. The Fowler is always free and parking is free for buses.
Go see those wall hangings of El Anatsui's. Wow. I saw his work at the Venice Biennale two years ago. LOVE IT!!!!
