On Tuesday, December 3, LACMA is participating in what will hopefully become an annual holiday tradition: Giving Tuesday. The event presents an opportunity to give back to nonprofit organizations and offers an alternative to the retail-focused activities that take place on the days following Thanksgiving. Consider taking part in this event by contributing to the LACMA Fund. Your gift will support everything we do here—from community-outreach programs to film screenings to music events.
Today and tomorrow, LACMA's Broad Contemporary Art Museum and the Resnick Pavilion are opened until 10 pm during our extended holiday hours. On Friday and Saturday enjoy late-night access to special exhibitions at the museum, including James Turrell: A Retrospective and Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic (with specially timed tickets). Keep in mind, L.A. County residents receive free general admission on Fridays (and every weekday) after 3 pm, so there’s really no reason to miss out.
Throughout the weekend, visitors are also invited to join any of the dozen free tours of our collection. See the daily tour schedule online. Families at LACMA will enjoy Story Time in the Galleries on Friday and a free, matinee 3-D screening of The Croods on Saturday. After the film, stay for a conversation with the creators of the movie and star Nicolas Cage. Reserve your free seats online. Per usual, count on new exhibitions and impressive installations throughout campus. Lastly, attend Sundays Live on Sunday at 6 pm, featuring cellist Ruslan Biryukov and pianist Armen Guzelimian, and reflect on the great holiday weekend. Cheers!
