Specializing in photography, this newly founded, privately funded space takes an innovative approach to displaying its digital and print works. More than just images on a wall, exhibits at the Annenberg often incorporate videos and/or music, creating a more dynamic experience for the visitor. The free admission and $1 parking help attract a younger crowd to the otherwise more corporate neighborhood. (It is housed adjacent to the intentionally intimidating CAA offices.) Bring a date on a Saturday evening and spend 30 minutes wandering through the gallery before catching a movie across the street at the Century City AMC. During the summer, Saturday evening concerts in partnership with KCRW turn the space into a vibrant hot spot.

We are so lucky to have the Annenberg here in LA. It’s a beautiful, modern space and every exhibit is so thoughtfully curated. I never thought I could look at over 100 photos of water and be so fascinated. The show they did in conjunction with National Geographic’s 125-year anniversary was one of the most beautiful, important things I think I’ve ever seen. And the space (which, by the way, is always free) is now teaming up with KCRW for Sound In Focus, a series of free outdoor concerts with music inspired by the museum’s latest exhibit.
