This Week at LACMA

October 30, 2023

As part of the newly opened Painting in the River of Angels: Judy Baca and The Great Wall, Los Angeles artist Judy Baca and Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) artists will paint new sections of The Great Wall of Los Angeles that span the 1960s, depicting moments like the Chicano Movement, the Watts Rebellion, and community organizing by the Black Panthers. 

In addition to the paintings, the exhibition features materials from the Baca’s archive that have never been exhibited, revealing her process and innovations to muralism.

Please note that the museum will close at 1 pm on Saturday, November 4, for a private event.
