This Week at LACMA

June 12, 2022

Juneteenth is Sunday, June 19. This week, alongside the many celebrations celebrations happening throughout Los Angeles County, LACMA presents Juneteenth-themed editions of Communities Create LA! at Roy Campanella Park in Willowbrook and Andell Family Sundays at the museum.

The image above, American Mother by Zora J Murff, is on view through July 30 in the LACMA exhibition Family Album, at Charles White Elementary School. Learn more about it in a Juneteenth blog post on Unframed this Friday.

Also join us Saturday, June 18, for a very special all-star edition of Latin Sounds at Levitt Pavilion, following a zine making workshop with artist Star Montana. Both are free and open to all.
