This weekend at LACMA, it's your last chance to see the exhibition Rauschenberg: In and About L.A., closing Sunday, February 10. Come explore the works acclaimed artist Robert Rauschenberg made in Los Angeles, highlighting the city's indelible impact on his creative output. The exhibition is characterized by experimentation, varied use of media and methods, and an embrace of cross-cultural exchange. In and About L.A. is complementary to LACMA's exhibition Rauschenberg: The 1/4 Mile, open through June 9. This monumental work embraces the same characteristics in many of Rauschenberg's works, but is composed of 190 panels that, combined, measure approximately a quarter mile in length and includes textiles, mass media images, photographs, and other materials from multiple countries, including ambient street sounds recorded during his travels.

Also take advantage of a free conversation this Saturday, February 9 at 7:30 pm with cartoonist Jason Little and actors James Urbaniak (The Venture Brothers) and Todd Alcott (Antz), where they will discuss the history of anaglyph 3-D comic books. Visit the museum before the talk to check out some 3-D comics and other examples of 3-D representation throughout history in our exhibition 3D: Double Vision

On Sunday, February 10 at 12:30 pm, bring your friends and family to Andell Family Sundays—American Visionaries, an inclusive program featuring art workshops and tours inspired by the exhibition Outliers and American Vanguard Art. Open through March 17, this exhibition features over 250 works by more than 80 self-taught and trained artists who contributed to key moments in American art history when avant-garde artists and outliers intersected, sparking conversations on inclusion, integration, and assimilation. 

Lastly, don't miss a free performance this Sunday, February 10 at 6 pm by the Colburn Chamber Orchestra, led by the charismatic and exciting conductor Maxim Eshkenazy.
