It always boggles my mind how expensive art is. Thankfully, the experience of actually viewing and enjoying art is usually free. Take, for example, the art at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica.
I finally visited Bergamot Station and my 2 (free!) hours in this converted railway station were definitely well spent. My favorite exhibition was an installation piece involving sand and cut out flowers. Be sure to walk around the piece to get the full effect!
