- Get “Lost”—and other pop culture pilgrimages – Nicholas DeRenzo recently posted this on This Just In… Newsweek's Travel Blog:
Unless you've been, well, stranded on a deserted island somewhere in the South Pacific, you're no doubt aware that a little show called Lost came to the end of its six-year run earlier this week.�� As withdrawal is starting to set in, fans are finding creative ways to reconnect with their pop culture obsession.
In February, our very own Elizabeth Kieszkowski compiled a list of the best places to Get Lost on Oahu, from actor hangouts to the ranch where most island scenes are filmed.��Little-known fact: although the series took place in far-flung destinations like Tunisia, South Korea, Nigeria, Australia, and Iowa, producers swear that all but four scenes were filmed in Hawaii.
If you can't make it all the way to Oahu, the Vilcek Foundation on New York City's Upper East Side is offering a free exhibit called "Lost: A Showcase of the International Artists and Filmmakers of ABC���s Hit Show," from Thursday, May 20 to Saturday, June 5.�� The gallery will spotlight the cast and crew's diversity with portraits from the set as well as memorabilia like the blue Dharma van and the Jughead atomic bomb.
