Members: Member Preview—Creatures of the Earth, Sea, and Sky: Painting the Panamanian Cosmos

10 am | Sat, July 29, 2017
Ahmanson Building

Members see it first. Members see it free. 

Ancient Panamanian art has not yet received the scholarly or public attention it deserves. Creatures of the Earth, Sea, and Sky: Painting the Panamanian Cosmos presents a unique opportunity to see a selection of extraordinary painted ceramics from LACMA’s collection, supported with loans from Drs Alan Grinnell and Feelie Lee. The dizzying slip-painting, covering every inch of the surface with strong, unusual colors and forming barely discernible figures, is identifiable only with ancient Panama.

This exhibition is included in general admission, which is always free for members.
