The Murakami exhibition at MOCA closed February 11, but it's not too late for you to tour the exhibit with the artist himself, Takashi Murakami.
For the past year, MOCA has had a presence on YouTube where you can watch clips of Murakami explain his artwork. This retrospective of his work was outstanding - a real treat. Takashi Murakami, a neo-pop artist, has definitely taken forms of Japanese popular culture manga (comic books) and anime (animation), as well as Andy Warhol's notion of his "factory," into the stratosphere. The execution of the work is pristine, and the imagery is whimsical - certain to bring a smile to your face.
