This Week at LACMA

October 22, 2023

For the first time in her practice, Judy Baca will transform a museum into a studio by painting new sections of the mural The Great Wall of Los Angeles at LACMA. In addition to these works in progress, Painting in the River of Angels: Judy Baca and The Great Wall presents murals from the 1960s depicting the Chicano Movement, Watts Renaissance, and archival materials that have never been exhibited, revealing Baca’s process and innovations to muralism. Don't miss the opening of this one-of-a-kind exhibition.
