LACMA is one of the city’s largest museums, featuring works of art from all around the world. This fall, they are honoring some of L.A.’s finest musicians with a weekly jazz event. Every Friday this autumn in front of the iconic Urban Light, Angelenos will get the chance to catch live music from these local acts.
LACMA states that their overall mission with their events and art programming “…is to serve the public through the collection, conservation, exhibition, and interpretation of significant works of art from a broad range of cultures and historical periods, and through the translation of these collections into meaningful educational, aesthetic, intellectual, and cultural experiences for the widest array of audiences.”
Their Friday night jazz starts at 6 p.m. and is completely free to the public. No prior registration is needed, but you can sign up here to receive a reminder email for the event. Keep in mind that seating at the Smidt Welcome Plaza along with picnic space is limited, and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. This incredible showcase is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
