Wake up Saturday morning and join us as we salute the sun! Before the museum opens, LACMA Local members will gather at Michael Heizer's Levitated Mass for an hour-long yoga class taught by Modo Yoga’s Carolina Phipps. Clear your headspace with some asanas, and then walk over to Ray’s for some well-deserved breakfast.

On Sunday, we say goodbye to the exhibition Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time. Christopher Knight from the Los Angeles Times calls elements of the exhibition “essential” and rare for museum collections. Trace Picasso and Rivera’s shared pursuits in Cubism, along with other moments of intersection between the legendary artists.

We also bid farewell to two exhibitions in the Pavilion for Japanese Art. Celebrate the success of the Japanese Art Acquisitions Group at LACMA, and explore artworks acquired from the group in its first 10 years. And don’t miss the bright designs of Awazu Kiyoshi, who devoted his career to political advocacy and collaborations within Tokyo’s artistic community.

Don’t forget to drop by Andell Family Sundays at the Zev Yaroslavsky Plaza. Discover masks, sculptures, and textiles in the exhibition The Inner Eye: Vision and Transcendence in African Arts. Then create your own art inspired by the exhibition!
