Los Angeles Museum of Art ReviewEntering the museum felt a bit odd because my mother and my two younger siblings accompanied me, and they never come with me to museums. I wanted to laugh because I did not feel that this situation was serious. But, as I became engrossed in the paintings, along with my mother, it all started falling into place.The first of the six buildings that we saw was the Ahmanson building. In that building we saw all of the Plaza level. It displayed beautiful American furniture, art, ancient art of the America's, and many arts and crafts. The furnit ...view middle of the document...

Afterwards, we went to the Anderson Building were we saw a wonderful exhibition of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. Most, if not all, of his paintings depicted something religious. Many of the scenes my mom knew for she is religious. I really liked his paintings because of the way he portrayed things. He made you feel the emotion of the character and they were all of things that my faith has been teaching me as I have been growing up.I found the Contemporary Art of that building rather silly. For most of it seemed like it was simple to make and I found no depth in it. The highlight of that room was a mirror display. As we walked to it, it just seemed like a bunch of mirrors glued to a cube. But, as we neared it we saw its' intricacies. When I realized that you could walk into it, I became intrigued. It was awesome being in it, for you could see yourself over and over again because of the reflections of many mirrors. That was the coolest, not boring exhibition in the whole museum.The Pavilion for Japanese Art was very boring with not much to see. We did not find it interesting because everything was too simple. Everything seemed very repetitive.Besides the mirrors the next best thing was the walk to the tar pits. All in all the museum was like any other museum. It had many interesting things along with other pointless things. But yet, I do want to return to this museum.
