Charles White Elementary School

Since 2007, LACMA has programmed exhibitions at the Charles White Elementary School Gallery. In the fall of 2018, LACMA began its collaboration with LAUSD for a newly formed Visual Arts Magnet Center on the school campus, serving as the center for teaching and learning about the visual arts.

To date, LACMA has presented eight exhibitions at Charles White Elementary School. The latest exhibition, Life Model: Charles White and his Students, opens February 16 (through September 15, 2019) and illuminates the artist's impact as a teacher

Programs are offered on select Saturdays. Admission is free and complimentary parking is provided.

This exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
