This Week at LACMA

August 13, 2023

Making sense of enigmatic visual phenomena such as the moon, clouds, and inkblots is a fundamental human ability that excites curiosity and inspires creativity. Eternal Medium: Seeing the World in Stone brings together diverse works that utilize the natural features of striking stones, and displays them alongside comparative examples in other media.

See the geological artistry that is Eternal Medium this week during Member Previews Thursday, August 17, through Saturday, August 19.
