I visited LACMA in late December and came across Metropolis II, an ingenious kinetic structure “modeled after a fast paced, frenetic modern city.”
The exhibition wasn't running when I was there, but as of January 14th the brilliant mini-metropolis is in action. Check out the video below and visit the gallery at the following times to view the sculpture in all its glory.
