LACMA is closed on Thanksgiving Day, but we will be open regular hours beginning Friday! This holiday weekend is the perfect time to visit the museum with friends and family. While you're here, don't miss Playing with Fire: Paintings by Carlos Almaraz, which closes in less than two weeks. Learn more about the artist, who died too young at age 48 in 1989; check out personal recollections of friends and family; and find out how independent curator and arts educator Marielos Kluck compiled and edited "Other Voices: Reflections on Almaraz's Legacy."
A stunning centerpiece of the exhibition is the artist's four-panel Echo Park Lake, united for the first time in decades. Check out this Facebook video focused on this work with educator Holly Gillette.
Enjoy a restful day and we hope to see you at the museum soon!
