LACMA's recent events have been very inspiring and original. Their fourteenth annual Muse 'til Midnight took place on August 21. The purpose of this event was to celebrate two of their exhibitions, "Manly Pursuits: The Sporting Images of Thomas Eakins" and "Catherine Opie: Figure and Landscape." Manly Pursuits can be viewed until Octber 17. To learn more about these exhibitions, visit LACMA's website.
The second Act at LACMA on the 17th was titled The Steampunk Saloon. Steampunk is inspired with a twist of Duane Michals. As seen below, steampunk fashion consists of goggles, full skirts, corsets, and top hats. Many of the guests who attended belong to the League of Steam. You can check them out at their website.
