American Excess: MOCA brings Las Vegas to Los Angeles

Las Vegas is kind of awesome–in an artificial and excessive way unique to America. I never thought that I could get much out of Vegas, having little to gamble and an aversion to clubbing, but during a recent trip there, I found it difficult not to appreciate the outrageous architecture, visible-from-space lights, and of course the crazypeople.

From March 21st-to June 20th, Las Vegas will be in LA. The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles presents Las Vegas Studio: Images From the Archives of Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown.

The exhibit is an architectural study in photographs taken by American architects Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour, along with students from Yale. The photos were published in 1972 in the book, Learning from Las Vegas.

For Sin City signage enthusiasts, check out this neon sign graveyard in Vegas located here (via Artificial Owl), where you can find old signs from the torn-down casinos of yore.
