LACMA is Free Today!

February 20, 2012

Thanks to Target, LACMA is free all day today! In addition to seeing many of our special exhibitions (excluding the specially ticketed exhibition In Wonderland) and permanent collection, you can also enjoy a slew of family activities. Rhythm Child, who have played everywhere from the Huntington to the White House, will perform at 12:30 and 2:45 on the Los Angeles Times Central Court, near the Boone Children’s Gallery. (The Boone Gallery is free but we will be issuing timed tickets to be sure everyone has a chance to enjoy the space.) There will also be a special outdoor family art-making activity on the LATCC.

Today is a great day to check out the California Design exhibition—gallery educators will be in the exhibition all day to answer questions and give free tours.

Chris Burden’s Metropolis II—all 1,100 cars—will also be running every other hour through the day: 12:30–1:30, 2:30–3:30, 4:30–5:30; 6:30–7:30. It's a not-to-be-missed experience for old and young alike.
