Jazz at LACMA welcomes Tierney Sutton with special guest Mark Summer to campus. Sutton has received six consecutive Grammy nominations for "Best Jazz Vocal Album," a nomination for every project she has released in the past decade. She will be joined by jazz cellist Mark Summer, the fourth member of the Turtle Island Quartet. The performance is free and open to the public, with performers taking the stage at 6 pm in the BP Grand Entrance.

Saturday night, join us for a conversation with award-winning writer and creator of PBS's Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes. Presented by LACMA and Writers Bloc, the discussion will be moderated by Patt Morrison of the Los Angeles Times. The talk begins at 5 pm in the Bing Theater.

Sundays Live brings a performance by emerging artists from the LA Opera's Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artists Program. The program offers a residency for singers and pianists to transition from academic training to a professional career in opera, with the goal of supporting the future of opera by developing the skills of young artists. The performance begins at 6 pm in the Bing Theater with works to be announced.

Upcoming tours include a look at Agnes Martin, our latest special exhibition featuring a comprehensive retrospective of Martin's work, on Friday at 1 pm. On Saturday at 11 am, join a tour of Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715–2015, and explore 300 years of men's fashion and the influences of cultural movements on menswear. Sunday, visit Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Medium with a tour at 2:30 pm that examines the breadth of the artist's influential photography throughout his life.
