Time Out says

Originally displayed at San Fransisco’s Alcatraz penitentiary, “Trace” displays portraits of activists and prisoners of conscience made from millions of LEGO bricks. Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was inspired to create this installation after he was imprisoned in Beijing due to his political activism. The L.A. edition of the installation includes 83 of the original 176 portraits, as well as a gold-colored wallpaper composition, entitled The Animal That Looks Like a Llama But Is Really an Alpaca. Timed tickets are required to visit the museum (which is free on Thursdays).
