Mappa by Alighiero Boetti

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is creating ways to make its programs and collection accessible to the communities of Los Angeles County with the goal of broadening participation in cultural experiences. By building on existing partnerships, establishing new relationships, and seeking community input, LACMA will endeavor to create educational and shared experiences that resonate with community members. Partnerships and programs with North Hollywood, East Los Angeles, and Compton began in summer 2016.

This project is supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation

LACMA has an established partnership with the Compton Unified School District, Compton Library, and Lueders Park, offering artist-led workshops for teachers, students and families. In spring 2017 LACMA began a new partnership with the East Rancho Dominguez Community Center to provide artist-led workshops for older adults. This year, the museum will offer art workshops on empowerment through the arts for women at the Compton Library.
