This Week at LACMA

August 27, 2023

Plan your trip to LACMA and embark on a profound and enlightening exploration of Afro-Atlantic Histories, on view through September 10, which charts the transatlantic slave trade and its legacies in the African diaspora. Join us on Tuesday for a special event presented in conjunction with the exhibition. Art therapist Dr. Louvenia Jackson will lead participants in a creative journey exploring connections between art, identity, and healing.

Be sure to swing by for Jazz at LACMA and Latin Sounds over the weekend!
