This weekend, step into Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985 to learn about design dialogues between the two locales. Make sure to check out original sonotubes (durable large-scale cardboard tubes that served as temporary architecture and signage) from the 1984 Olympics; these were created by Deborah Sussman and her firm Sussman/Prejza.
If you're in the mood for art on Saturday, be sure to check out our free family art-making workshop in our satellite gallery at Charles White Elementary School in MacArthur Park, led by artist Maria de Los Angeles. The workshop is in conjunction with the exhibition A Universal History of Infamy: Those of This America. In the Valley? Stop by North Hollywood's Valley Plaza Branch Library to create your own artwork in a free artist-led workshop.
On Sunday, bring the whole family to LACMA to discover Impressionist paintings in the galleries and paint, draw, and see the light in artist-led workshops, before enjoying a free concert by the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Chamber Orchestra.
Of course, don't miss Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici, (closing March 18); Richard Prince: Untitled (cowboy) (closing March 25); and 1917/1918: Looking Backward, Stepping Forward (closing April 1).
