Special: College Night 2018

7 pm | Tue, February 13, 2018
BP Grand Entrance

College students: LACMA is hosting a free evening just for you! 

Explore Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985, the groundbreaking exhibition about design dialogues between California and Mexico. Discover the exhibition Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici, devoted to 18th-century Mexican painting; A Universal History of Infamy, which engages 16 U.S. Latino and Latin American artists and collaborative teams working across a range of media—from installation and performance to drawing and video; Wu Bin: Ten Views of a Lingbi Stone, which explores the history of collecting strange stones in China and the relationship between them, Daoist cosmology, and classical Chinese poetry; and contemporary photography in Richard Prince: Untitled (cowboy). Participate in gallery discussions, curator tours, create art inspired by Found in Translation, and enjoy a free reception in honor of college students—all after public hours.

Art-making Workshops

Jewelry Design with Artist Sofia Mas

Focusing on folk art and craft traditions seen in Found in Translation, as well as artists William Spratling and Héctor Aguilar, participants will learn about the inner connections between California and Mexico and how these two regions shaped material culture through jewelry making.

Sofia Mas is a mixed-media artist. She received her BFA from California State University Northridge and has 10 years' experience teaching youth and adults in schools, juvenile halls, and museums. 

Printing Patterns with Arist Elonda Norris

Looking to the myriad patterns present in Found in Translation, students will explore these motifs through printmaking. Take inspiration from the exhibition, explore color, and form by repeating, rotating, separating, or overlaping their design to expand a single work into complex patterns. 

Elonda Norris received an MFA in drawing and installation from Claremont Graduate University and a BFA in ceramics from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Elonda has shown internationally as well as throughout the Los Angeles area. In addition to her art and teaching practice, Elonda is a co-founder and co-organizer of Summercamp’s ProjectProject in El Sereno.
