Hello! This is Laura Mart, curator @skirball_la, and for the next few days I will be taking over the Skirball's Instagram feed. In light of the horrific and tragic news from Las Vegas I am sharing an image of healing. For many, rainbows are signs of hope and strength in times of hardship. This photograph by @kengonzalesday of a mural at the Watts Towers Art Center, included in the Skirball's upcoming exhibition Surface Tension, reminds me that even in moments of darkness we find solace in the promise of peace and the knowledge that it is in our hands to shape. #surfacetensionla #skirballxmuseum #snappingforskirball #pstlala #vivalasvegas #prayforlasvegas
