This Artist Has Memorialized the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Before It Gets Partly Demolished

Vera Lutter in Robb Report

The project will be on view at LACMA beginning March 29, just as the long-gestating Zumthor plan is expected to finally kick into gear. Lutter brought her own brand of tenacity to the encyclopedic museum: Many exposures took months—so long that museumgoers left no trace. Others were quicker; in her view of the garden, Lutter was able to capture the wind in the gently blurred palm trees. Despite her precise calculations, she tells Robb Report, “It’s always a surprise when I see my images.”
