Color Factory: Check.
Museum of Ice Cream: Check.
Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors: Scored tickets and soon to be checked in November.
A lot of people quipped that getting tickets to the above shows was harder than getting tickets to Hamilton. I agree. At least with Hamilton, you can pay a tremendous amount of money to secure a seat.
For the exhibits above, it was luck. Also, I think it has to do with persistence. I mean, who else can say they’ve gone to all of the above?! I logged in well before go-time. I had multiple browsers open on my laptop (Chrome and Internet Explorer) and I used my iPhone as well. You can’t beat three separate connections!
Anywho, for those of you who are local, I’ve got a great art installation to recommend at the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) that’s here through January 21, 2018. No waiting in an online queue. No waiting in line at the museum. Your visit is not timed. You can take pictures, relax, enjoy, and stay for as long as you want.
It’s the world premiere of Nature’s Gift: Humans, Friends & the Unknown, a simple, yet interactive art piece that takes me back to the playa. Franco didn’t want to leave, he was having so much fun. Except all the spinning he was doing with the hammocks started to make me nauseous. Check out the picture below where kids are peacefully swinging, whereas my kid is winding himself to the max.
It was pure relaxation (if you don’t have a rambunctious kid) and very zen. We’ll be back!
