Set good intentions for the new year with LACMA Local members in this Saturday's Local: Meditate. Educator Alicia Vogl Saenz will lead a contemplative viewing experience followed by meditation in the exhibition John McLaughlin Paintings: Total Abstraction. McLaughlin was inspired by the Japanese notion of "the void," and created paintings that provoke introspection and a greater understanding of one’s relationship to nature. His geometric paintings serve as a perfect backdrop for self-reflection and intentionality. Join LACMA Local for an invitation to this event and many more.
