Life in LA After Covid-19
Places we can’t wait to reopen
With more Los Angeles residents getting vaccinated, there is hope for controlling Covid-19 and returning to a sense of normalcy sometime in the near future. While there is no set timeline, it is exciting to think about all there is to look forward to.
Museums, theatres, and other artistic centers have been closed during the pandemic, and we wanted to share some of the staple Los Angeles creative spaces we are most looking forward to visiting once they reopen!
The Getty Center is architecturally beautiful with city views to match. The art on display, whether it’s part of their permanent collection or a rotating exhibit, is focused on American and European histories. There are also different gardens, such as The Central Garden, which is an art exhibit redesigned with each season, and the Lower Terrace Sculpture Garden, an exhibit compiled of modern sculptures. The Getty Center is free to the public.
The Griffith Observatory offers indoor and outdoor exhibits that cater to those interested in astronomy. Use telescopes to examine the sky and stars, discover the history of astronomical studies at the Wilder Hall of the Eye and Cosmic Connections exhibits, and explore the connections between mythology and science at Keck Central Rotunda. The Griffith Observatory offers breath-taking views and mind-blowing information, all for free.
Pantages Theatre opened in the 1930s and has undergone renovations in recent years to preserve it’s luxurious 1930s appeal. Visitors get to experience musical performances in a beautiful setting, and the Pantages Theatre’s history only makes visits that much more interesting. The Pantages Theatre has hosted the Oscars and been featured in television and film, making it a huge presence in Hollywood.
The GRAMMY Museum is a very Los Angeles activity, and the museum celebrates everything music. Their exhibits include interactive displays, historical information on the featured artist or group, exclusive behind-the-scenes and interview footage, and so much more. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the music industry and the experiences of different artists.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall is architecturally and acoustically stunning. The building’s exterior design is unique and captivating, and the interior was designed to nurture the sounds of the musical performances. Opera-lovers can also see The Los Angeles Philharmonic, a world-renowned orchestra, perform at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
While none of these spaces are currently open to the public, we look forward to the day when their doors open again!
