It’s never too early or too late for an introduction to art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art makes it easy for family travelers with great activities and incredible exhibits. Virtuous Ink and Contemporary Brush, LACMA’s temporary exhibit of the works of Korean artist Park Dae Sung, is a great place to start, with an extraordinary collection of ink on paper scenes laced with intricate details depicting the stunning beauty of Park’s homeland.

 

The exhibit consists of eight pieces, making it a great start for little ones anxious to move on to their next activity. Pieces range from the small Antique Beauty to the massive Snow at Bulguk Temple, in which the artist uses the brilliant juxtaposition of his calligraphic ink strokes and negative space to create the beautiful scene of a snow-covered temple.

 

This is Park Dae Sung’s first solo exhibition in the United States and, as Virginia Moon, associate curator of Korean art, LACMA said, “This exhibit is intended to encourage viewers to take a moment and slow down while immersing themselves in Park’s landscapes.”

 

Not only is this exhibit a great way to expose children to a new art form, but there are also plenty of fun things for kids to do at LACMA. The grounds are home to the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, an active paleontological research site in the heart of the bustling city, where kids can get a first-hand look at the history of our planet.

 

Virtuous Ink and Contemporary Brush runs through Dec. 1, and admission to LACMA ranges from $10 to $25 depending on age. The museum also offers several discount and free admission options, such as free admission for all visitors on the second Tuesday of each month and free admission for active-duty military and their families every day from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
