LIFE + ART: LACMA Museum's VIP access part 1- The Olmecs

The LACMA Museum (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) graciously sent me a pair of VIP tickets to view their latest exhibitions and visit the new Resnick Pavillion. I finally carved out the time to visit and what a great way to start the year.

"OLMEC- Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico"

There are varying opinions on the true origins of the Olmec People. Many (including myself) believe evidence which points to fact that the Olmec's are of African descent. What cannot be argued is the majestic abilities the Olmec people possessed to create figures and true works of art with pure man power. Seeing it up close is jaw-dropping.


Hubby's color palette looked so good against this Olmec artwork reproduction

An original Incense holder. Imagine the energy and scents that escaped from the top of this

Unfortunately the exhibit has ended but there is so much more to enjoy at the LACMA and new Resnick Pavillion. Check out all of their current exhibits here.
