Photographic Arts Council
The Photographic Arts Council (PAC) supports the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art by providing significant funding for special exhibitions for the department and enabling the museum to expand its prominent photography collection through the purchase of notable acquisitions. PAC fosters individual and community-wide appreciation of the art of photography and photographic achievement through exhibition, publication, and collection programs. Members of PAC receive invitations to artist talks, studio visits, private collection tours, curator-led tours of special exhibitions, and exclusive events held in conjunction with the museum’s photography exhibitions.
