Reply Clarence Chou June 10, 2016 Hey, Art Assignment, Vancouver awaits you. Can this please happen? Reply plus2happiness June 10, 2016 I saw the leap before you look exhibit when it was at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston Reply Leandra Luna June 10, 2016 Another great video! Also, I was wondering what books you could recommend to me as a starting point to brushing up my art knowledge? I am a complete novice but would love to learn more! Thanks in advance. Reply ray & sunflowers June 10, 2016 sarah did u go to art school? did u want to be an artist or did u always wanna be a curator? Reply ray & sunflowers June 10, 2016 btw im in DC right now and will be going to the national art galleries tomorrow, what should i be sure to see? Reply Fraser Radford June 10, 2016 I had to pause the video right after the segment about the Black Mountain College exhibition because I remembered that I read an article about a group of folks opening up a residency where BMC once stood. They are calling the residency Black Mountain School. Here is the link to the article if you are interested: https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-black-mountain-school-is-building-on-the-foundations-of-its-predecessor Reply Finn Hafnmr June 10, 2016 Is the hole Open or is there glass Reply maggieedna June 10, 2016 the mets weird open storage room was the thing that made me an art history major in college (my advisors weird and uncomfortable insistence that I learn french was the thing that made me switch out) Reply Carissa Pobre June 10, 2016 Art Trips are among the best 🙂 Reply This Is Fifty With Lil June 10, 2016 Earthquake terror-filled me would have an anxiety attack walking under that rock! Fun Fact: I grew up in Los Angeles and never went to La Brea tar pits! Also, those tacos looked amazing. Reply Gidon June 10, 2016 Next time you're in LA you should visit the Norton Simon museum if you've never been. Reply nemesis962074 June 10, 2016 You should do a art tour of LA but viewing the art produced by or for its immigrat communities, especially the Latino and Asian art that is so prevalent in certain areas Reply Luis Rivas June 10, 2016 Can I just say how much I enjoy that both you and your husband make YouTube videos? That being said, this channel is my first true exposure to the fine arts and I really appreciate how accessible it makes it to those of us who may have been just a little bit intimidated by anything beyond a Picasso or The Starry Night. I will definitely be keeping an eye on new exhibits coming to the Houston Museum of Fine Arts! Reply Victor Kong June 10, 2016 So sad you missed the Museum of Jurassic Technology. Definitely very freaky. Hopefully next time. Reply Qwen Wan June 10, 2016 Wow, that was great. Reply Paris Guglielmoni June 10, 2016 Would you ever do a case for Banksy?! ☺️ Reply firewordsparkler June 10, 2016 Such a great video! Definitely going to try to hit some of these places next time I go to LA. Reply Kathia Rodriguez June 10, 2016 I was completely stressed in the middle of a paper but this made me breathe. You don't know how much I appreciate this type of content Reply Oliver Bollmann June 10, 2016 Ah nice, the Broad! It was still under construction when I went by last year… 🙂 Reply Elliott Collins June 10, 2016 Sad you missed the Museum of Jurassic Technology. One of the stranger places in the world. Reply Nate Villaume June 10, 2016 Once again I loved the video. I'm bummed that the museum of Jurassic technology was closed. I would have really enjoyed hearing your take on it. I've never seen anything like it. It has a purpose I'd love to hear you articulate. Reply takerone June 10, 2016 Graffiti cut scenes, hey, better than nothing. 😀 Even though the "Venice Art Walls" graffiti wall at Venice Beach is not exactly a free for all, you have to get permission, so it's kind of curated, almost like a gallery. Except less exclusionist. 🙂 Reply xBangBangPow June 10, 2016 Can we get artists from the Middle East and North Africa region? Reply Andrew van Zyl June 10, 2016 Dear SarahThank you SO much for your great videos, many of which I have taken the liberty of posting on my Art Scoop here http://www.scoop.it/t/art-resources-for-south-african-teachers Keep up the great work and take care, Andrew van Zyl Reply Mithra Murali June 10, 2016 I love going to art galleries, especially to see installations by artists. A forced shift in perspective is a pretty unique experience in itself. But it got me thinking about the artist's journey to this point. These installations you've featured are pretty big projects – but where do these artists start out? Do they all start with something small and graduate to something larger, or is it not always that linear? And would it ever make as huge of an impact if you were seeing the artist's first and only work as opposed to their 50th or 500th? Reply Leslie Jones June 10, 2016 For "Art Trip: LA, Take 2" please spend some time in our museums' permanent collections. And don't come on a Wednesday. The Museum of Jurassic Technology is well worth it. Reply 1incubuschik June 10, 2016 Damn why did no one tell me you were coming to Bakersfield…. It would have been cool to see you and I would like to know more artists that live here Reply Margaret Moon June 10, 2016 I would recommend doing an art tour of Houston. There are some fantastic museums there. But I would try and time it around the art car parade. This wacky rolling display shows everything from low rider bikes to cars covered in mirrors. Cars come from all over the world. It's amazing. It is usually at the end of April. To find out more, go to http://www.thehoustonartcarparade.com/ Reply Jenna Ellis June 11, 2016 I love these art trip videos! Reply Ambrose Reed June 11, 2016 Thanks for pointing out the Broad Museum! I'm gonna go while I'm nearby for VidCon Reply ARTiculations June 11, 2016 Question! Is it possible to see some of these places without driving (e.g. public transit, uber?). I will have only a day later this month (day before Vidcon) to maybe check out a couple places but I am terrified to drive in LA lol. Reply fortheloveofLDS June 11, 2016 Motherfeasible…you're full of it, Sarah. 😉 Reply Claire Savage June 11, 2016 I'm from Bakersfield and it was so cool to see my town in an art assignment video. It's fun to hear we have some common feelings about the beautiful and bizarre things Bakersfield has to offer even though you had a short visit while I grew up there. Reply Jeremiah Daniel June 11, 2016 but what about The Getty??? :/ Reply im cheese June 11, 2016 jet fuel can't melt steel beams Reply Bettie Turner June 11, 2016 I love these little travel vlogs you do. 🙂 Reply K Bender June 12, 2016 My husband and I have very little similar interests, so I love that we watch the Art Assignment together! Reply phombuspucker June 12, 2016 Pork isn't kosh. Reply Oliver Nilsson June 12, 2016 Shoutout to Marks vegetarian ramen. Reply ProfessorPuppet June 12, 2016 I'm sorry you missed the Museum of Jurassic Technology. It's one of the weirdest/best hidden gems of Los Angeles. I'd love to hear how you describe it. (And it's just a block from an In-n-Out burger! Or, for a classier, more vlog-worthy bite, the Lobby of the Culver Hotel.) Reply Anna perry June 15, 2016 If you guys are able I urgently recommend visiting the Everson Museum in Syracuse. They're having their biennial until August 28, "Kindred Beasts." It's amazing and not something you'd want to miss Reply Anne H. June 18, 2016 Love these public outdoor art installations! Are there any artists you recommend who have created installations in miniature? V(. interested in miniature art in general) Reply Indubitably Zara July 11, 2016 This is the only thing that has ever made me want to visit LA for its own sake. Thanks for the reminder that even the places we may think of as unpleasant or odious have plenty to offer if we're willing to take a careful, generous look. Reply 1LIXO August 24, 2016 Wich camera do you use ?Thanks ! Reply Genevieve Armstrong November 17, 2016 Have you guys ever come to the DFW area?I grew up here so i KNOW know know we have the worst rep, the one we are infamous for but I get a little frustrated when no one ever sees the kinda of amazingly resilient artists that come from here. It can be super lonely as a Texan artist- I'm guessing that's why they often leave. But if we can lay claim to an artist like Rauschenberg, I only wonder what other hidden treasures Texas has birthed. Reply srh November 28, 2016 this was so great to see you guys around my city! thanks for the restaurant recommendations! Reply Jose Bravo July 25, 2017 Holy shit, my professor from Cal State Jesse Sugarmann is in this! 😀 Reply joseph adam dunn December 5, 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8pr40ODhnk&t Reply Nicole January 6, 2018 I feel so fortunate to live about an hour north of LA for this reason. Growing up in a tiny mountain town the vastness of culture available so near to home is invaluable. Reply Pepper Rivera May 7, 2018 watts towers? Reply Howard Owens August 31, 2018 I learned of some locations for art in LA I didn’t know about and I’ll need to visit next time I’m there with some time but I can’t imagine going to LA from for art and not taking in the Huntington. I’ve been three times and I’m sure I’ll go again some day. There would be no culture in Bakersfield without Buck and Merle. That iconic sign was save because of Buck (no relation). I love the Crystal Palace. I saw Buck there twice. Art in Bako is otherwise pretty dismal. I wish you had included the Getty. I’ve never been there and would like to know more about it. Reply Jane Tai October 18, 2018 This honestly makes me appreciate having these museums in such close proximity to me. I only live like 30 minutes away from LA and I've been to almost all of the museums in this video at least once, and now I really wanna go again. Also, you should check out the Getty next time you come! Reply CYRUS GRAHAM October 21, 2018 🌴🌞The Summer of Year 1999 My Postcard📝📮🎨 Art I Sent to Record Companies, Capital Records,etc I was living in Bakersfield, California. Apartment #3 Grassotti Court. Reply Loves Lunatics February 2, 2019 Art scenes are so fckn white, with a little tokenism, natch Reply lovecarl68 February 28, 2019 PLEASE, take me to the Museum of Jurassic Technologies. Reply Sock Cucka May 8, 2019 This is fucking boring and awful.. please shut down your channel Reply ASTA September 18, 2019 As an art lover and LA native, I am hugely disappointed with your selection – Getty and other museums and institutions aside, where is the vibrant downtown art scene, the Art District and the Underground? Venice? Fantastic Latino art? How about getting in touch with local artists to show you around? Technically speaking, your videos are fast-paced jambalayas of unnecessary footage while skimming more important parts, both visually and verbally. While I support the initiative, I urge you to think past HS project approach. P.S. Wurstküche is pronounced Vurst-KooSheh and not Vurst-Kookah.
