This Weekend at LACMA

November 18, 2016
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Jazz at LACMA is coming to an end! Join vocalist Wendy Smith-Brune by Urban Light on Friday night. Wendy began her career singing for Ray Charles, and eventually went on to work as a backup singer for Michael Bolton, Sheena Easton, and Barry White. There's only one more Jazz at LACMA event in the season, so be sure to bring out your picnic blankets for them both!

On Saturday, LACMA presents the sold-out After Dark: Teen NightTeens will enjoy a night of gallery-hopping, live music, and art-making workshops, including "Keepsake Coffins" led by LACMA's very own high school interns. Interested in becoming an intern? Check out our High School Internship page! 

If you weren’t able to reserve your spot for Teen Night in time, sign up for our Families e-blast to stay in the know. And, don’t forget: Guillermo del Toro is in its last days and closes on Sunday, November 27. Reserve your tickets today and discover his cabinet of curiosities.

Opening this weekend at LACMA is Y.Z. Kami: Endless Prayers. Discover the work of New York-based, Iranian-born Y.Z. Kami, which reflects the theme of endless prayers. Prayer, an act both physical and transcendent, is grounded in the world of time and space but sustained by the perception of something that exists beyond embodied reality. Immerse yourself in a state more easily felt than seen.

Also opening this weekend is Renaissance and Reformation: German Art in the Age of Dürer and Cranach. The exhibition highlights of the German Renaissance and explores an era of conflict, war, and profound change through works of paintings, sculpture, drawing, and armor.

Enjoy a free lecture on Sunday in conjunction with Renaissance and Reformation. Renowned scholar Jeffrey Chipps Smith will present Beauty and Conflict in the Bing Theater, where he will discuss German art in the 16th century. The lecture is free and open to the public.
