Who knew riding in a elevator you could experience a work of art. In an enormous glass elevator at LACMA visitors have the opportunity to view a digital-print installation by Barbara Kruger. As the elevator ascends and descends riders catch glimpses of text, however the elevator car blocks words, compromising the entirety of the phrase. Kruger is known for juxtaposing imagery and phrases from everyday life, leaving the viewer to question the intended meaning.
