A City Like No Other – Viewing Metropolis II at LACMA

Remember Hot Wheels and Micro Machines and all those other race car toys? I loved them when I was a kid and was always hoping for the latest and greatest loop de loop racetrack on the market. Well, recently I made a visit to LACMA to find my wildest race car dreams come true. I saw the exhibit Metropolis II.

Metropolis II is a mini city filled with skyscrapers and landmarks and trains and highways and lots and lots of whizzing toy cars. It is a magical site to behold. Joining the crowds massing around the sculpture I was filled with glee. I felt like a kid again as I stared completely enraptured by the wonder before me. I walked around the sculpture gazing at all the details. I went to the landing above to see a birds eye view. I walked around again, taking it all in.

It is such a fun, fun, fun site that I encourage any and all to see it. And if you go on the second Tuesday of the month, admission is free!

Oh, and to give credit where credit is due
