This Weekend at LACMA: Andell Family Sundays and Sundays Live Return, Free Guided Tours, and More!

It’s the new year: start it off on the right foot with a visit to LACMA. On Friday and Saturday, enjoy tours of our collection and select exhibitions including a look at the Renaissance rivalry between Florence and Venice artists, a survey of ceramics from Korea, a detailed walkthrough of See the Light—Photography, Perception, Cognition: The Marjorie and Leonard Vernon Collection, and an overview of one of our most popular galleries, the Art of the Pacific. For a complete listing of tour times, visit our online calendar. But of course, we always encourage you to chart your own path and discover for yourself exhibitions like Under the Mexican Sky: Gabriel Figueroa—Art and Film (closing February 2), David Hockney: Seven Yorkshire Landscapes Videos, 2011 (closing January 20), and Masterworks of Expressionist Cinema: The Golem and its Avatars.
