Interested in learning about the collection and architecture of LACMA or the latest exhibition? Join a trained docent on a tour to explore LACMA's collection and exhibitions! Tours are offered daily, free with museum admission.

Join studio art classes for discussions in the galleries and studio time to realize drawing, painting, mixed-media, or printmaking projects. Take gallery classes to deepen observation skills and learn about composition, color, technique, and personal expression.

When news of a novel coronavirus arrived in the United States in early January, xenophobia was not far behind. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, reports of racist attacks against Asian Americans increased. As the number of confirmed cases exploded in America, racial disparities in health outcomes became starker. The hardest hit are often Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities—many of whom are essential workers. Before and throughout the pandemic, Black and Brown people across the nation have continued to be murdered at harrowing and unacceptable rates by the police.

Join For Freedoms, GYOPO, LACMA, and StopDiscriminAsian (SDA) in a series of lively virtual conversations about the pandemic’s impact on the movement for racial justice, and the country’s long standing health, economic, and racial inequities.
