Default Museum of Ice Cream Comes To LA till May 29, 2017

from Cool Hunting: Museum Of Ice Cream, LA
by Kyle Raymond Fitzpatrick
From 22 April through 29 May, a warehouse space in Downtown LA's Arts District will stand as a monument to dessert: it is the temporary home of the Museum of Ice Cream. The Museum lies at the sensory intersection of sweet tooth and Instagram and is the highly anticipated West coast sequel to last summer's New York showing. A few crowd-pleasers from the original presentation remainólike the oddly mesmerizing pool of sprinklesóbut the bulk of the Museum features new ice cream-adjacent curiosities like a chocolate soil garden of mint, a Warholian cascade of bananas, and confectionary riffs on iconic Los Angeles locations.
A handful of the installations break from being elaborate serving stations for snacks and let artists inspired by ice cream do whatever they want. These include Abel Bentin's neo-classical goth soft-serve meditation and Baker's Son's leaky flotilla of popsicles. There are ample opportunities for treats from local stars like McConnell's in addition to curious sponsored reprieves from Dove Chocolate, Lolli, and Soylent. Across the board, it's a wildly playful and photogenic museumótake a look through our slideshow above.
Tickets for the Museum of Ice Cream can be purchased online and are likely to go fast.

I wish I had gotten to see the Museum of Ice Cream while it was in New York City, but unfortunately didn't get a chance. Maybe Los Angelenos will have better luck!
