Los Angeles County Museum of Art: Metropolis II
Date: The second Thursday of every month
Time: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles
Perfect For: Revisiting the days of SimCity with a person-sized model city
Everyone needs to get away from the responsibilities of adult life from time to time, and there's no easier way to reminisce about your childhood than at Chris Burden's Metropolis II. The great part about the exhibit is its "best of both worlds" approach: as an adult, you'll appreciate the sculpture for its aesthetics, but your inner-kid will be drawn to the toy-like qualities of the model city.
