This eclectic shop proves that anyone can own a piece of art. – The Scene
Tucked into the side of a Frank Gehry-designed building is the unassuming MOCA store, an extension of the shop inside the Museum of Contemporary Art in Downtown Los Angeles. Its beachside location attracts an art crowd, of course, but also those who have an appreciation for the whimsical.
The MOCA store continually updates its stock, usually in conjunction with exhibits at the museum. While it does have a large selection of art books as well as a small magazine rack, expect to find all sorts of novelty items, like bags made out of recycled tires. You'll find practical stuff here too, such as a progressively designed hairdryer or a retro wall clock. The selection of stationery items (notebooks, pens, leather-bound address books) is also worth a look. If you have a tiny art-lover in your family, there's a section of children's books, shirts and stuffed creatures in the back.
