Today's the day: starting at 11 am, we'll be screening Christian Marclay's 24-hour film collage The Clock for its full duration, for free in the Bing Theater (co-presented by KCRW). This will be your best chance to see the work in a theater setting, so we hope you'll find an opportunity to see it today, this evening, tonight, in the small hours, and/or tomorrow morning.

If you're committing for the long haul, you might like to know that the Plaza Cafe (right next door to the Bing Theater) will be open all night long. Ray's will also be open extra late tonight--until 2 am--just for you Clock-watchers. Ray's has a great Monday dinner special, by the way: $10 entrees. If you haven't had a chance to check out the new restaurant (or if you have), tonight might be the night if you need a break from your art-viewing marathon.

Follow us on twitter today, where we'll be checking in on The Clock throughout the day. If you're tweeting, make sure to tag us (@LACMA) or use hashtag #theclock so we can see your tweets!
