LACMA Opens Resnick Pavilion, Free This Weekend

Published

on

Saturday and Sunday mark the official opening of LACMA’s Resnick Pavilion and its three exhibitions.

LACMA is free all weekend, though admission to the new exhibitions requires a timed ticket. Online reservations are now sold out—though there will be some held for walkups on both days (first come, first served).

The Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion, designed by Renzo Piano, dramatically expands the museum’s exhibition space and unifies the western half of the museum’s twenty-acre campus.  The single-story, 45,000 square foot structure is the largest purpose-built, naturally lit, open-plan museum space in the world.

It is opening with a trio of exhibitions that highlight both the diversity of the museum’s encyclopedic collection and the flexibility of the new building: Eye for the Sensual: Selections from the Resnick Collection; Olmec: Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico; and Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700–1915

There is plenty happening at the museum all weekend long even if you miss your chance for the timed tickets. There are other exhibitions, special installations, and tons of permanent collection galleries that are also totally free and don’t require tickets of any kind.

There’s also a lot happening all around the LACMA campus, also free and not requiring a ticket: Saturday in Hancock Park will have live Latin music from noon to 6 pm, including performances by the Plaza de la Raza Youth Mariachi Ensemble, Angel Lebron y su Sabor Latino, and, starting at 4 pm, Quetzal.

Sunday will be a great day for kids with art-making activities and performances from We Tell Stories.  If you’re looking for a fun and free party in the park, it’s at LACMA. Click here for specific details on the weekend’s events.  As Sunday draws to a close, be sure to stop into the Bing Theater in the evening for our weekly free Sundays Live concert.  This week guests from the New England Conservatory will be performing works in celebration of Robert Schumann’s bicentennial.

In addition to the Community Weekend celebration, LACMA is also screening a two-day film series: Spotlight on Marco Bellochio. Friday night will be the double-feature of his 1965 debut, Fists in the Pocket and his 1968 film China is Near.  Saturday, the racy Devil in the Flesh (no one under 18 admitted) followed by La Balia / The Nanny.

WeHo Reads: Architects Who Built Southern California Opens Mar 6

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Join author Antonio Gonzalez for a free event, as he tells the stories of the people behind some of Southern California’s most iconic buildings.

In the early 1900s, the population of Southern California exploded, and the cities grew at such a rapid pace that builders could hardly keep up.

Among those who settled in the area were ten architects looking to make their marks on the world. Claud Beelman, a man who never received a college degree, would go on to design the Elks Lodge in Los Angeles.

Albert C. Martin, architect of Grauman’s Million Dollar Theater, founded a company that is still going strong more than one hundred years later, and Julia Morgan, the first woman architect licensed in California, was hired by William Randolph Hearst to design the Examiner Building.

Antonio Gonzalez has a BA in journalism from the University of Iowa and an MLIS from San Jose State University. He is a member of the Odd Fellows fraternity, works in an architecture and fine arts library and has a blog where he post items related to architecture and his other interests (misterdangerous.wordpress.com).

In 2015, arts and historic preservation staff began a project of documenting all of the City’s designated historic properties.

This free exhibition shows a selection of photographs from the over 80 properties that were documented by West Hollywood photographer Tony Coelho, representing a wide array of architectural styles and associations with well-known architects and builders. These images celebrate West Hollywood – recognizing our past, present, and future.

When and Where:
Friday, March 6, 7:00 pm
Community Meeting Room at the West Hollywood Library
625 N. San Vicente Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069

  • 7-8 pm: Reading and Architecture Presentation by Antonio Gonzalez
  • 8-9 pm: Exhibition Reception with artists upstairs.

RSVP required. Register at: niahistoric-weho-reception. For more information about this exhibit visit https://www.weho.org, or contact Mike Che, Arts Coordinator, mche@weho.org.
