As we head into the Christmas weekend, LACMA’s hours will be reduced: on Christmas Eve we will close at 5 pm (Ray’s will close at 3 pm), and we will be closed all day on Sunday. That said, many of you have today and/or Monday off (not to mention family in town looking for some fun)—and there is plenty to see at the museum. Check our calendar for a variety of free docent-led tours every day, including special exhibitions and the permanent collection and lasting anywhere from fifteen to fifty minutes. Whether you opt for a tour or not, there are plenty of exhibitions to see that will satisfy any number of appetites. Here’s a rundown, moving across campus from west to east:
Monet/Lichtenstein: Rouen Cathedrals (closes January 2!) | BCAM
Glenn Ligon: AMERICA | BCAM
Robert Therrien: Selections from the Broad Collection and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art | BCAM
Contested Visions in the Spanish Colonial World | Resnick Pavilion
California Design, 1930–1965: “Living in a Modern Way” | Resnick Pavilion

We also have a variety of installations on view, including works by Henri Matisse, Edward Biberman, and Shadi Ghadirian, as well as masterpieces of Korean, Japanese, and Southeast Asian art.
Finally, of course, there is the permanent collection, including beautifully reinstalled galleries for European, Korean, Chinese, and South Asian art as well as Latin American, Modern, and much more. Happy Holidays!
