Each spring, local cultural institutions LACMA (The Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and The Getty Center open their doors to college students for a free night of culture and fun.
College Night at LACMA is being held this year on Thursday, April 5 from 8-10 pm. Share your ideas in a gallery discussion, create art, and enjoy a free reception in your honor. Bring your friends and explore the special exhibitions In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States and California Design 1930–1969: Living in a Modern Way. See a special viewing of Chris Burden’s Metropolis II in action.
There will also be a performance of Analog Among Nations (Mostly) Iteration 4 The Women by Renée Petropoulos. Inspired by the lives of the artists in the In Wonderland exhibition, this improvised and participatory performance is a poetic sound work composed of spoken word, recorded national anthems, and other material impressions.
