This is LA’s latest attraction, the Second Home Serpentine Pavilion, erected by the Spanish architectural firm SelgasCano. It’s pretty much what it looks like: a series of tunnel-like structures covered in colorful swatches of mylar and nylon.

It turns out, however, that it’s a hand-me-down. It was originally put up four years ago in London’s Kensington Gardens as part of the Serpentine Gallery’s annual pavilion program. Now it’s set up on the lawn behind the LA County Museum of Art near the La Brea Tar Pits. Admission is free, but you have to book an entry time online.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
