Valentine's at LACMA

February 7, 2013

Love has fueled many great works of art. From Picasso’s The Lovers to Renoir’s La Promenade to the very literal LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana, artists continue to harness the power of love in their work. But, as in life, it isn’t always romance and roses. In that spirit, LACMA has put together a Valentine’s evening for the lovers AND the lonely hearts.

On February 14, we will be keeping the Ahmanson building and Stanley Kubrick open from 6 to 9 pm. There are many options for how to spend your evening. For the lovelorn—(or, those just looking to have fun), we’ve created the Love Hurts tour—a 30-minute tour inspired by works in our collection portraying heartbreak, jealousy, affairs ending badly, and more.

We are also bringing back to popular RED pop-up dinner series. In conjunction with the Love Hurts tour, Chef Jason Fullilove has crafted a decadent and savory prix fixe menu. With communal tables, delicious food, and good company, who knows what you'll fall in love with?

Come to LACMA on Valentine’s Day. The only thing you need to love is art.
