Support your favorite nonprofit tomorrow as part of #GivingTuesday. There are many ways to give to LACMA, and some forms of participation do not involve a transaction. Here are a few suggestions:
- Visit LACMA. The museum is free for Los Angeles County residents after 3 pm on weekdays. Our public art—Urban Light and Levitated Mass—are always on view, and always free. Many of our public programs, such as Sundays Live, are also free. Your visit to the museum is invaluable—visitors activate the space of LACMA.
- In search of that perfect present? A gift of LACMA membership allows your recipient to enjoy 12 months of LACMA—this includes special exhibitions, education and public programs, films, music events, and more.
- Talk to us. We're always interested in all that our fans have to say on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and here on Unframed.
- Engage with other nonprofits around the area.
- Make a contribution to our LACMA Fund. Your gift to this fund helps us do everything—from exhibitions to keeping the lights on.
We'd like to extend our thanks to all who have contributed in any form to LACMA—from visiting the museum for the first time to being part of the Legacy Circle. Your engagement encourages LACMA to strive to do more to serve its public.
Speaking of thanks, over Thanksgiving weekend, we considered the menus of artists and focused on Andy Warhol's feast. The artist appropriately called upon icons of the annual meal for his own: stuffed turkey, sweet potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and green beans. One could argue that the ingredients Warhol recommended were inspired by the same quotidian objects that informed his deadpan silkscreens.
The Artist's Palate: Cooking with the World's Great Artists is a collection of beloved recipes by artists, many of whom are part of LACMA's collection (Warhol being one of them). While we're used to seeing an artist's visual production, this collection gives an interesting insight into the gustatory details of their lives.
Check out the rest of the recipes below, and perhaps they might inform your next Thanksgiving meal.
