LACMA’s Art Councils have a long and important history of supporting art acquisitions, programs, and special projects and priorities for the museum’s curatorial departments. Each council directly supports one or more departments within the museum, and all programs offer in-depth experiences related to the chosen area(s).
Council members have the opportunity to build camaraderie with like-minded peers and share experiences in pursuit of connoisseurship. Each art council invites members to six-to-eight events annually, with a focus on exhibition walkthroughs, curator conversations, behind-the-scenes experiences, gallery conversations, and other events linked to the department.
Annual dues: $1,000
A Friend-level museum membership or above is required to join Art Councils at LACMA.
