Birthdays are for sharing and giving! Celebrate LACMA's 50th birthday by making commemorative works of art for you to share and gift to someone special. Imagine their delight and surprise!

Special on June 28: The Sketchbook Project's mobile library is on LACMA’s campus today. Search their catalog by artist name, theme, city, and country to find a book of interest, or take a chance on a random pick.

Pencil It In: The Art of Ed Moses

Los Angeles artist Ed Moses is inspired by the world around him; he was influenced by Mexican tablecloths, Mondrian, Swedish greeting cards, mechanical drawing, and Navajo blankets. See how these objects made an impact in Moses's abstract drawings in the special exhibition Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s, then make your own experimental drawings in art workshops.
