Tonight our Jazz at LACMA series continues with vocalist/bassist Kristin Korb performing on the Los Angeles Times Central Court, right outside of the galleries for Manly Pursuits: The Sporting Images of Thomas Eakins, Catherine Opie: Figure and Landscape, and EATLACMA (and the Matisse ceramic we told you about yesterday). The concert is free and starts at 6 pm. Feel free to get here a little early, since all L.A. County residents get free admission to the galleries starting at 5 pm. If you’re keeping track, that’s three exhibitions and a concert for zero dollars. The perfect price!
The rest of the weekend’s events—aside from our usual Andell Family Sunday—are packed with special members-only events as we let our members preview the new Resnick Pavilion. Yes, the day has finally come! If you’re not a member, you’ll have to wait until next weekend to get into the new building and its three knockout exhibitions.
That said, the Eakins, Opie, and EATLACMA exhibitions, as well as our permanent collection galleries, will be open all weekend for your enjoyment. BCAM will be closed all day on Saturday and from noon to 4 pm on Sunday as we’ll be busy prepping that side of campus for the parties (tickets for the Avant-Garde After Party, by the by, are still available). Here’s a tip: if you are planning to come to see our exhibitions this weekend, you may want to park in the lot on Wilshire and Spaulding instead of the underground lot, to get you closer to the side of campus that won’t be affected by the special events.
While we’re on the subject, we’ve got even more members-only events all next week, too. Monday through Friday (closed Wednesday), members are invited to Members-Only Preview Days for the Resnick Pavilion exhibitions. The pavilion will be open to members on these days from 11 am to 4 pm. Admission for members is free, though reservations are required.
Feeling left out? That’s why it pays to be a member. You can still join and get access to the Members-Only Preview Days, as well as an invite to one of the opening parties (plus some other goodies). Not to mention we still have five more exhibitions slated to open before the year is over—that’s in addition to the Resnick Pavilion exhibitions!—plus the Tim Burton show in the spring. That's a lot of LACMA in your near future, so you may want to consider the cost-effective option.
