Enjoy an art-filled weekend at LACMA with two new exhibitions opening this Sunday!

Also opening on Sunday, May 12, with an exclusive member preview on Saturday, May 11, is Between the Lines: Typography in LACMA’s Collection. Drawn entirely from acquisitions made since 2014 as part of LACMA’s Graphic Design Initiative, the more than 30 posters and publications in this exhibition represent a range of typographic approaches from the mid-20th century through the present, featuring the work of many influential international designers including Charles and Ray Eames, April Greiman, Corita Kent, Takenobu Igarashi, Paul Rand, Massimo Vignelli, and Wolfgang Weingart.
