Exploring wonderful art in Los Angeles while on college-student budget may sound impossible, but at the Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), you can view some amazing pieces for free!

MOCA is offering everyone a chance to view Mike Kelley's entire exhibition of work, including his Mobile Homestead exhibit, at no charge on Saturday nights from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. throughout July. Visitors can enjoy DJs, food trucks, performances, art talks, tours and more.

Kelley, who died in 2012, created art that mined “American popular culture and both modernist and alternative traditions, which he set in relation to relentless self and social examinations, both dark and delirious,” according to MOCA. At the museum, there are more than 250 pieces of his work, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, photography and more. One his most unique masterpieces that you don't want to miss, however, is his Mobile Homestead exhibit.

Mobile Homestead is truly a one-of-a-kind exhibit that's actually a mobile home acting as its own gallery space. When Campus Circle had the chance to review it earlier this year, we couldn't help but applaud the exhibit's nod to homelessness in L.A. A timeline and old newspaper articles documented the city's history with homelessness, and the gallery also featured 36 brightly colored portraits of "Walk the Talk" honorees, individuals who worked to make a difference on L.A.'s Skid Row.

Kelley's work will be on view at the MOCA until Monday, July 28, so hurry and see it before it's too late!

The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA is located at 152 North Central Avenue in Los Angeles.
