(Los Angeles, April 23, 2017)—The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) announces the addition of nine new acquisitions during the museum’s 31st annual Collectors Committee fundraiser. The annual Collectors Committee Weekend—led by LACMA trustee, Collectors Committee chair, and Acquisitions Committee co-chair Ann Colgin—was a two-day affair which included curator-led art presentations, private dinners at the homes of major LACMA supporters, and a gala dinner where members voted on artworks to add to the museum’s permanent collection. This year, the 90 voting members raised more than $2 million.
