We visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Frank Gehry exhibit last weekend, and it’s mind-boggling! The scope and design of the structures he’s put together over the years is amazing, and of course we couldn’t wait to get to the last huge room at the Resnick Pavilion, the one which houses his current projects. What were we looking for? The Jazz Bakery, with its curlicues and zig-zag features, that will actually seat 250 in the round at its concerts, plus more in its two-story space next to the Kirk Douglas Theatre. We took a few pictures and will see if we’re able to include them here!
