Culture is Alive and Well

The Skirball Cultural Center is a museum located in LA near the Getty Museum. The center was free the day I went. The architecture was akin to a gigantic Torah:

The driveway.
The main building.
The entrance.
The grounds.

We went through the museum that was comprised of two sections: part was dedicated to Jewish history and part is a random exhibits: one exhibit was about Noah’s Ark which has animals created using household items:

My favorite was the giraffe.

The other was about Stanley Kubrick and his teenage job as a photographer for Look magazine:

This is a very young Kubrick photographing a showgirl for a pictorial.

Kubrick photographed hundreds of folks;

The Jewish permanent exhibit focused on Jewish culture:

Included are both historical exhibits and diverse subjects like the Holocaust.

The Skirball was a unique place to visit — who knew Kubrick was a photographer! His films are always visually appealing and a part of his stories.

This was the end of day one in LA!

Interesting — yes?
