Zebras to Xenon

Check out this challenge! I found out about it from my cousin, Megan, who's doin' it. It's free, comes with a training program and seems like a good idea (don't you think, Cousin Cyndi).

Today we walked the L.A. Zoo for a few hours, then headed downtown to the Museum of Contemporary Art. The Louise Bourgeois exhibit was, well, contemporary. There were pieces we liked, pieces I could have skipped altogether, and pieces that convinced the girls they should save all of their sketches - they've more impressive works in their collection already. Thursday nights admission to the museum is free (after 5 p.m.), and parking's conveniently curbside, but bring LOTS of quarters. At $4/hour and coins the only option if the credit card meter is out of service (as it was this evening), you'll need a pile of 'em.

From MOCA we headed to MONA - Museum of Neon Art only a few blocks away. The neon (argon, krypton, and xenon, too) was interesting, entertaining and colorful. But it's a tiny museum and, at $20 for two adults and two children, too pricey. Perhaps it will be worth another visit when it moves to a larger location where more than a single room of the collection might be displayed.
