The LA County Museum of Art has many great pieces, but perhaps its signature is the series of different style and size streetlights in front of the museum titled Urban Light. It is made for pictures, and we had a great time on our visit. It is a fun piece of art to simply walk through as every place offers a different perspective. In addition, the views are enhanced by the buildings around it.

What a wonderful creative free outdoor experience. Came at 10 pm and saw several groups taking pictures so felt safe. One of the best things we’ve come across in LA and definitely a good picture spot that is unlike anything I’ve seen. We found street parking right across the street and parked for 20 mins!

I mean, everyone should probably stop here for a picture or two because the Urban Lights appear so often in movies. I wouldn't stop here for any other reason though.

This unique installation is a bit of an institution in LA now. It’s well worth seeing and it’s actually outside the museum if spending time at LACMA is not your thing. Parking is a bit of an issue but the lights look great at anytime of the day or night so go when it’s quiet and enjoy!

This is a cool installation at the LACMA and worth stopping to see, I didn't realize how different each individual light is until you see it in person. If you go at night be prepared for a LOT of people, you won't get a photo without someone in it unless you use photoshop. We stopped after our visit to the museum and with a little patients, I was able to get a relatively clean shot with just a couple of folks in it. Not sure it is worth driving out of your way to see, but if you are in the area it's a good stop.

We got lucky while driving we saw it and stopped the car nearby and visited. It is a beautiful spot to take pictures. It was also seen in the move 'love actually'.

You can visit Urban Lights free without going into LACMA. We visited before going into the museum. I would be interested to see this at night when the lights are on. It is very cool. Go there!

This was located right in front of the LACMA and even though it was outdoors masks were required back In May.

It was one way in and out which a security guard was quite strict on managing.

There were 202 street lamps which were acquired for this collection from lamps retired from use off the streets of LA. Only the grey paint was the unifying theme otherwise the lamps were different.

Will try to come back in the evening when the lamps are lit.
