Japanese Art Acquisitions Group (JAAG)

The Japanese Art Acquisitions Group (JAAG) offers donors the unique privilege of working with the curator and department head of Japanese Art to acquire significant works for LACMA's permanent collection. 

JAAG members gather at an annual dinner meeting, where they engage with the department curator in a lively discussion and have the opportunity to help acquire proposed works for the museum's collection. In addition, members of this dedicated group enjoy behind-the-scenes tours and invitations to other special activities throughout the year. 

Many events are hosted in the Pavilion for Japanese Art, which opened in 1988 and is the nation's only free-standing museum building dedicated to the collecting, display, and study of Japanese art. The collection and building, which offers a unique art-viewing experience, continue to attract worldwide attention.
