Today we celebrate legendary artist Chris Burden​ ​(1946–2015). Born on this day,​ ​Burden created LACMA’s iconic sculpture​ "Urban Light​"​ in 2008. Gathered into a whole, the artist described the streetlamps as, “a statement about what constitutes a civilized and sophisticated society: safe after dark and beautiful to behold.” ​#lacma#UrbanLight #ChrisBurden #bornonthisday​

Did you know the two towers on top of our building are a work of art? Artist #ChrisBurden installed them, along with a ship, on the outside of the museum as part of his 2013 retrospective "Extreme Measures." The 36-foot-tall structures alter the skyline slightly, commenting on the constantly changing #urban landscape while also evoking the lost Twin Towers. Burden pushed the museum to its structural limits, and in the process our building became a collaborator. #architecture

I never get tired of walking around here. I'm happy to be back home and sleeping in my own bed. #urbanlights #chrisburden #LACMA #miraclemile #homesweethome

What's the latest in NOW? Chris Burden’s "Ode to Santos-Dumont" is otherworldly yet historically grounded, suggestive of a time when technological innovation and experimentation evoked an optimism toward futurity rather than the often dystopian concerns of the present day. Come see it fly at Art Basel Unlimited this week, on view through June 18. Read "Burden's Airship Takes Flight," Sydney Stutterheim's text about the sculpture on NOW (click on the link in our bio). #ChrisBurden #OdetoSantosDumont #LatestinNOW #ArtBasel #ArtBaselUnlimited
