Celebrate the new year at Ray’s and Stark Bar! Enjoy a three-, four- or five-course dinner created by Chef Fernando Darin and speciality holiday cocktails on Sunday, December 31. Come back the next day for a special hangover brunch and start the year well-fed and happy.

While you're here, don't miss your chance to see the spectacular exhibition Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage before it closes on Sunday, January 7. Chagall’s artistic practice was shaped by a love for the stage, shown through the musicians in his paintings, set designs for the Ballet Russes, and murals created for the Moscow State Jewish Theater. 

Also on view is Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexiciwhich was recently named one of the best exhibitions of 2017 by both the Los Angeles Times and New York Times. Experience this groundbreaking exhibition devoted to large-scale paintings from 18th century Mexico. Stop by the LACMA Store to check out the exhibition catalogue, also included in the New York Times's Best Art Books of 2017 list.

Take your time walking around the galleries and connecting with artworks. Find yourself in a meditative state while viewing the exhibition Wu Bin: Ten Views of a Lingbi Stone. In ancient times, strange and marvelous stones were valued for their beauty and as reflections of the hidden structures underlying the universe. Discover fresh perspectives as you close out the year.
