This Weekend at LACMA

February 9, 2018
Myra Hassaram, Marketing Coordinator

Explore the complexities of identifying animals in ancient iconography in the Ancient Panama symposium. Discover the efforts of trying to re-open the Panamanian National Museum and why ancient Panama has been largely overlooked.

Check out the spectacular paintings in the exhibition Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici. Look for la Virgen de Guadalupe, angels, other religious figures, and spiritual iconography painted in a uniquely Mexican style. Bring your family to Andell Family Sundays to make your own art inspired by the exhibition. Sunday, February 11, is the last day to see the Ardabil carpet, on view in the Resnick Pavilion; the Coronation carpet will be exhibited next, from February 17 through July 8, 2018.

Join Maxim Eshkenazy and the Colburn Chamber Orchestra Sunday night for Sundays Live. Eshkenazy received two master's degrees from USC's Thornton School of Music and has been hailed as "charismatic and exciting" by the Los Angeles Times. He currently serves as Director of the Colburn Community School's Colburn Youth Orchestra and Colburn Chamber Orchestra, as well as Assistant Conductor of the Colburn Conservatory Orchestra.
