high cultured.

Someone at work told me, "Grace, I'm not used to this type of work. I usually like high cultured art and you bring me down to low brow." I turned to her and asked, "Don't we all work in reality TV?" I don't understand the people who are constantly trying to cut others down. I genuinely want everyone in life to be happy and well-adjusted.
I may be low brow but I love that about myself. I love a good corny joke and I think farts are the funniest thing on earth. That being said, I also love going to museums, plays, shows, galleries, and whatever else is considered "high culture." I don't think that a person has to be one or the other. I don't think it's right to put people in boxes. So while (lets call her Ms. Tay) Ms. Tay enjoyed going clubbing this past weekend, I was able to say I went to LACMA on my day off.

LACMA is an amazing museum in LA and it's mostly contemporary/modern art. I'm not the biggest fan of modern art but I do like the exhibits there and the films that they screen. The space is beautiful and a lot of fun.
 Every LACMA trip requires a different picture of the lamp posts.

I really enjoyed this exhibit. Third floor of BCAM. Glenn Ligon

Don't know what these are, but they are beautiful. Looks like Oscars and aliens. 

This made my museum companion break out into song. "I am 16, going on 17..."

Ms BoPeep & I at LACMA. Picture from Ms. BoPeep. Our faces are completely covered and all the details are missing but we look long & tall so I love it!


This piece was the coolest ever. The different parts of the metropolis were from all the big cities int he world. The freeway was crossing over the entire metropolis and the entire thing was just amazing to look at. I think it was done by the same guy who made the lamp posts.

If you're ever in LA, definitely head to LACMA. I'll meet you there! 

Have a Happy Weekend y'all! My sister's birthday is coming up so I can't wait to spend the entire weekend being sisters.


  1. That metropolis is so cool! :)

  2. I definitely agree with you, just because a person liked "high cultured" activities it doesn't mean that they can't do more low brow things. Like yourself I'm not the biggest fan of Modern Art, but the museum looks like a lot of fun, and I love watching museum films :) xo

  3. It's fun to visit museums for a little culture. That Metropolis piece is just stunning! Happy weekend!

  4. Dont let people bring you down! You have the right idea, laugh at farts and do 'cultural' things, at the same time if possible!
    This place looks amazing, I'd love to visit!

  7. wow grace - that last one really is amazing and is a true representation of what L.A. looks like!! also, i'm sorry, but what an ignorant thing to say to someone... i don't even claim to know you all too well, but from what i've come to learn, you are most certainly NOT low brow... some people are clueless... on a more positive note although - have a wonderfully 'high brow' weekend grace haha!!
