Los Angeles County Museum of Art information
LA’s premier art museum, LACMA's galleries are stuffed with all the major players – Rembrandt, Cézanne, Magritte, Mary Cassat, Ansel Adams, to name a few – plus several millennia worth of ceramics from China, woodblock prints from Japan, pre-Columbian art, and ancient sculpture from Greece, Rome and Egypt.
The depth and wealth of the collection is stunning, and the Renzo Piano ‘Transformation’ finally brought a sense of design to the 20-acre LACMA campus worthy of the art it contains.
It includes a surreal light post entry pavilion and the Broad Contemporary Art Museum , presenting part of the personal collection of developer Eli Broad, including seminal works by Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. How much will remain once the Broad museum opens is unknown.
LACMA also hosts headlining touring exhibits (the James Turrell one was special) and frequent movie screenings, readings and other events, including a popular Friday-night jazz series.
