LACMA's "Free Days" Weekend

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

In addition to full access to the current galleries of the museum, the weekend's festivities are set to include live music; workshops; roving performers such as stilt-walkers and magicians; live DJs on the plaza; photo booth; dance performances

While all three days of LACMA’s Community Weekend are free, tickets are required. A last minute notice has surfaced that the Broad, sadly, is all booked:

Tickets for entering the new Broad Contemporary Art Museum at LACMA are sold out for this three-day weekend. But you can join the Free Community Weekend nonetheless—just come to LACMA and receive free tickets enabling you to tour LACMA's five other gallery buildings (several with new features and installations of their own), view all the new outdoor art installations, and participate in all of the outdoor activities

LACMA's Free Community Weekend
Saturday Feb. 16-Monday Feb. 18, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
