Los Angeles County Museum of Art LACMA9 Art + Film Lab

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents a new outreach initiative that brings an array of interactive art and film programming to nine communities in Southern California, including Redlands, San Bernardino, Altadena, Monterey Park, Hacienda Heights, Montebello, Compton, Inglewood, and Torrance.

The LACMA9 Art + Film Lab is a participatory and interactive space that provides an opportunity for the public to learn and experiment with art and filmmaking processes. The LACMA9 programming, all of which is free to the public, include an opening night celebration, hands-on art and filmmaking workshops, weekly outdoor film screenings, and the gathering of oral histories from community members. At the conclusion of each five-week residency, residents will be invited to a special community day where visitors will receive free admission to the museum. The LACMA9 Art + Film Lab is supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation. This sixteen-month program will commence this summer at the University of Redlands from June 7-July 7, 2013. lacma.org
