About Face

April 6, 13, 27  | 12:30 pm
A portrait can be of anyone—the president, a queen, your favorite pet, families, friends, or even you. Explore the galleries, looking for portraits on your adventure—you'll be surprised how many you find. After, make your own portraits in artist-led workshops.

Cats have been a popular subject for artists across all cultures and time periods. Roam LACMA's galleries in search of felines, then participate in kitty-inspired art workshops.

Target Free Holiday Mondays

Visitors of all ages are invited to a free* day at the museum

Memorial  Day
Monday, May 26, 2014 | 11 am–5 pm | *Free, tickets required
Visitors of all ages are invited to a free day at the museum, with bilingual tours, free programs, art-making activities, and live music by Mehrdad Arabi and Friends at 12:30 and 2:45 pm.

Mehrdad Arabi, a master of Persian music, has received numerous awards, including the prestigious Master Musician Fellowship in 2006 from the Durfee Foundation in Los Angeles. He is one of a handful of musicians who have studied both the traditional and contemporary approaches to the tonbak, a goblet-shaped drum from Persia. He uses this instrument in his compositions as a soloist as well as an accompanist.

*Does not include admission to Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic
* To ensure a safe and pleasant visitor experience, tickets to the Boone Children's Gallery on Target Free Holiday Monday will be timed and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Pick up your free timed ticket in the Boone Children's Gallery on the day of the event. Timed tickets allow for a thirty minute visit.
