Alexander Schneider, Associate Editor

This holiday season, be the trendsetter, the tastemaker, the one who always surprises and delights. Satisfy all the art and culture lovers on your list with the LACMA Store’s curated selection of gifts inspired by the museum’s collection and exhibitions, from art books and catalogues to unique apparel, accessories, homeware, limited-edition objects, and playful presents for all ages. 

You can shop at the LACMA Store in the Resnick Pavilion, or virtually at the LACMA Store online around the clock. Make sure you place your orders by our holiday delivery and pick-up deadlines.

You can also give your favorite art lover a LACMA membership, which grants them free admission to the museum, invitations to members-only events, discounts at the LACMA Store, access to Member Previews, and much more! This year, we’ve introduced a selection of themed Holiday Gift Membership Bundles so you can give them their LACMA membership with a gift box full of art-themed goodies.
