Art to See Now

BY Laura Eckstein Jones, Meg McGuire, Allison Mitchell and Abigail Stone | November 27, 2017 | Feature Features National

L.A.'s art scene is as exceptional and ever-evolving as the city itself. Here's a look at the museums and more that are painting our city beautiful.

A MATTER OF ART
Maurice and Paul Marciano showcase their extensive collection at the Marciano Art Foundation.

“The joy we’ve experienced from living with art inspired my brother and me to open the Marciano Art Foundation,” explains Maurice Marciano of the contemporary art museum he recently opened with his brother, Paul. “We’ve been exclusively collecting contemporary art since the early 2000s, and we wanted to let the general public experience the satisfaction of interacting with and learning from great works—works that speak to who we are and help us locate where our society is today.” Those works include pieces from esteemed artists like Alex Israel, Cindy Sherman and more that are sprinkled throughout the museum’s 55,000-square-foot exhibition space that spans multiple floors and galleries. “The goal of the foundation is rooted in education and opportunities for artists—we want to share our private collection with as many people as possible, but also give artists opportunities to create what they might not otherwise have,” says Maurice, who is also commissioning exclusive projects and shows with the MAF team. “We hope to continue to spotlight Los Angeles and the dynamic creative community at work in our city,” explains Paul. “Art speaks volumes.”
