As the year comes to a close, all of us at LACMA would like to wish you health and happiness in 2022. This April, we were able to reopen the museum to the public, and it was a joy to welcome you back onto our campus and into our galleries—while ensuring the safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers—with a varied slate of exhibitions and programs that made for an exciting and inspiring year of art and human connection.
LACMA is open this weekend, so don't miss your last chance to see two enthralling exhibitions, The Obama Portraits Tour and Yoshitomo Nara, both of which close on Sunday, January 2, and check out other current shows like the recently opened Black American Portraits, or the companion exhibitions Mixpantli: Space, Time, and the Indigenous Origins of Mexico and Mixpantli: Contemporary Echoes. Make sure to book your tickets in advance.
We're also celebrating the end of the year by taking a look back at some of our favorite things to read, watch, and listen to related to our exhibitions and programs in 2021.
