Hidden from a busy Eagle Rock street at the end of a long driveway sits a structure the size of a small bedroom. Its walls are comprised of sliding door panels and it is topped by a corrugated metal roof. One big step up, made shorter by a simple cinder block, lets us inside, where art is gracefully arranged. The intimacy makes it feel as if the exhibit was created just for us. This is the Los Angeles Museum of Art, a sculpture and project by artist Alice Könitz.
Könitz has many artist friends who, when visiting from out of town, would ask where they might be able to show their artwork. So she decided to create a museum of her own.
