LACMA Muse presents International Museum Night, an after-hours event celebrating LACMA’s position in the global art community and highlighting artwork from around the world.
The event will feature the work of global artists from as far as Sydney, Australia, and beyond. If any pictures catch your eye, there will be opportunities to purchase original artwork as well as specially produced prints. Who knows, you might even end up taking home one of the most sought after canvas prints Sydney has to offer as a souvenir.
Create your evening with these talks, tours, tastes, sights, and sounds:
