Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) in Long Beach video shows the interior exhibits and quality art. In some galleries prices are posted on the works (one I looked at cost $20,000).  The wall colors enhance the stunning visual displays of both painted art and sculpture.


MOLAA was a bit challenging to get to on foot when I took the purple arts bus provided free by Long Beach Transit Assoc. and the bus driver suggested I get off (maps were not helpful) and walk. Walking is not a problem. There are some interesting neighborhoods but I wouldn't want to walk alone after dark through them.


The exterior of this building could appear as a concrete fortress, if not for the colorful paint accents, palm trees, and large flower pots.


Once inside, the exhibits are generous in quantity and size, and the quality is world class. Focused on the works of Latin American artists, some pieces offer a clearly cultural emphasis so different from, yet similar to the messages and moods of Southern California, where localized Latin American Art is blooming into a huge, popular body of works. MOLAA in Long Beach has undergone renovations and is popular for events and weddings. There is no flash photography allowed in the galleries.
