Los Angeles


Downtown: MOCA

Permanent collection, thematic exhibitions of international scope. Painting, sculpture and environmental works created since 1940. MOCA's galleries are clad in a distinctive rough-cut red Indian sandstone and topped by pyramidal skylights. The galleries themselves are entered down a flight of stairs leading to a courtyard from where you can view the sensuous curve of the parapet above, which architect Arata Isozaki says was inspired by the dimensions of Marilyn Monroe. Isozaki calls it the Monroe Curve.
