Valentin Popov’s Ironic Icons at Long Beach Museum of Art by da-AL

Only days remain to see Ukranian-born Valentin Popov’s boundary pushing reworkings of Orthodox Russian iconography at the Long Beach Museum of Art. Don’t despair, however, if you can’t make it. The museum always has something wonderful going, along with free admission every Friday.

  1. Many years ago my husband and I saw the work of Sam Maloof, a fabulously talented wood craftsman, at this museum. We’d go several times a year to see whatever exhibition was there. I like its intimacy. And I note that the museum is featuring the work of an immigrant!
