This Weekend at LACMA

Victor Guzman, Marketing Coordinator

This weekend at LACMA, we invite you to come celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus by visiting the exhibition The Bauhaus at 100: Modern Legacies. The exhibition brings together prints, photographs, ceramics, furniture, and examples of graphic design from LACMA’s collection, providing insight into the highly influential architecture and applied art school (1919–1933) that moved between the German cities of Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin before it was forced to close by the Nazi government. Visit the exhibition and learn more about the school's complicated legacy and its lasting contributions to modern art, architecture, and design.

On Friday at 2 pm, bring the children in your life to Story Time in the Galleries, where families and children of all ages are welcome and admission is free!

Then on Sunday, for the first time, members are invited to an exclusive viewing of artworks proposed by LACMA curators for acquisition through the 2019 Collectors Committee. Over the last 32 years, the Collectors Committee has enabled the acquisition of 238 artworks and this year LACMA members get the opportunity to view significant works that may soon enter the museum's encyclopedic collection. If you're not a member and are interested in joining events like this one, learn more about how to become a member.

Also on Sunday, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm, stop by Andell Family Sundays—Wearable Pattern & Color, where you can draw inspiration from the exhibition Power of Pattern: Central Asian Ikats from the David and Elizabeth Reisbord Collection and then make your own wearable creation or a book of patterns in artist-led workshops. Lastly, at 6 pm, drop by Sundays Live and enjoy a riveting performance by the Colburn Youth Orchestra.
