This Weekend at LACMA

June 2, 2017
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Saturday night is Korean Inspiration Night, a celebration and exploration of LACMA’s permanent collection of Korean art, one of the largest collections of Korean works in the United States. Ticket-holders will enjoy an evening of gallery viewing, art discussions, art making, and Korean tea tastings. Reservations for this event are no longer available in advance. A standby line will form at 7 pm outside of the Bing Center on the day of this event.

Explore the museum before Korean Inspiration Night starts. Take a docent-led tour and learn more about artworks in our collection. Discover the work of a utopian artist who believed that art could work hand-in-hand with technology for the betterment of humanity. Explore stunning masks and notice how works were made to look upon, gaze within, and see beyond ordinary limitations.

Follow the rainbow into the first Andell Family Sunday of the month. See how artists like Wassily Kandinsky, Henri Matisse, and Polly Apfelbaum experiment with color. Families are welcome to create their own works inspired by the paintings, prints, and a spectacular fabric installation from An Irruption of the Rainbow.

Escape June Gloom on Sunday night with some classical music in the Bing Theater. The UCLA Camarades will perform chamber music by Beethoven, Ligeti, and others. This ensemble is constituted for campus and off-campus concerts, granting students the privilege to learn via on-stage performance with their mentors at the highest standards, and to share with them the joy of chamber music.
