From all of us at LACMA, we wish you a Happy New Year!
The museum is closed tomorrow on New Year’s Day (LACMA is closed every Wednesday), but we’re open during regular museum hours starting on Thursday, January 2. Don’t miss your chance to view The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China before it closes on January 5, and check out our other current exhibitions including the recently opened Fiji: Art & Life in the Pacific.
Whether you prefer to ring in the new decade with a quiet moment, or a party with friends and family, these collection highlights are sure to inspire a spirit of celebration. Happy 2020!
