Forgotten Fantasy | World’s First Art Amusement Park
Imagine for a moment that a select group of influential modern artists got thrown into a carnival bouncy house and then launched via a cartoon spaceship into 1980’s Germany. We have the results stationed right in downtown Los Angeles. Luna Luna: Forgotten Fantasy, a spectacular showcase of the world’s first art amusement park- lost since 1987.
Artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dali, Keith Haring, David Hockney and Roy Lichtenstein were commissioned to design rides and exhibits for a genre bending amusement park. The grand plans for a touring attraction were dashed, and, shockingly, the amusement was put into storage and forgotten. Thanks to a select group of individuals, including the rapper, Drake, Luna Luna lives again today as an art exhibit. And, you can experience it for yourself in downtown for the next few months.
If you could go back in time, what artist would you add to this list?
