Museum Worthy

by C California Style

Thinking about making a big-ticket purchase to add to your personal collection?

Next month, Sotheby’s will auction off approximately 35 donated works to benefit the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Standouts include Mark Bradford’s sculptural Smear made from found objects in Los Angeles, and Ed Ruscha’s deadpan Goods and Services, bearing the artist’s trademark type-on-naturalistic landscape. Works will be on display at Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills preceding the New York sale. 456 N. Camden Dr., B.H., 310-271-9400; gagosian.com; moca.org.
