LACMA and Four Southern California Institutions Embark on Multi-Year Partnership

(Los Angeles—January 14, 2021) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is pleased to announce Local Access, a partnership with four Southern California institutions made possible by a grant of nearly $2 million from the nationwide Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative. 

Local Access will bring special exhibitions drawn from LACMA’s collection to four institutions in greater Southern California: Lancaster Museum of Art and History; Riverside Art Museum; Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College; and California State University, Northridge, Art Galleries. Over the next several years, each partner will present up to three exhibitions that reframe and broaden traditional ideas about American art through sharing collections and museum resources. 

Golden Hour: California Photography from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the inaugural exhibition for the Local Access program. The exhibition will first open at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History with a virtual presentation, on view February 7–May 9, 2021, and then is scheduled to travel to Local Access partner institutions throughout Southern California.
