Break out the coolers and picnic blankets, this weekend at LACMA is a fine time for free outdoor concerts and enriching exhibitions.
It all starts with the Cannonball-Coltrane Project performing at Jazz at LACMA on Friday at 6 pm. Saturday, at 1 pm, a double-feature screening of The Lost Angel and Ernst Barlach: Mystic of Modernity present the life and times of the celebrated German sculptor. Produced in 1966, the film was banned by East German officials, who considered it “mystical.” For more, see a full collection of existentialist artworks in Ernst Barlach: Portfolios, before it closes Sunday.
Later in the afternoon, enjoy a refreshing blend of tropical rhythms, jazz textures, and rock at Latin Sounds, with Freddie Ravel at 5 pm. During the day, join any of the free tours of the collection, like a 20-minute walkthrough of Ancient Colombia: A Journey through the Cauca Valley on Saturday or a full survey of our Contemporary Art galleries on Sunday.
