This Week at LACMA

October 1, 2023

What individuals see in stone depends on their culture, unique experiences, and imagination. Eternal Medium: Seeing the World in Stone invites visitors to look for themselves as well as consider the works in their wider visual contexts. It highlights the material’s conducive subjects, geographic origins, physical properties, and the technical virtuosity demanded by such a challenging material. Visit LACMA this week to explore the exhibition.
