August Free Movie Nights @ LACMA 2012

Wee~~  LACMA’s Outdoor Films series starts this week and it’s all about animated movies. Yes!  I’ve already made plans to see Bolt this Friday and hopefully another one before the month is through.

Free events like this make me love summers in LA and I’ve been good this year on taking advantage of them. There’s nothing like chilling outdoors on a big picnic blanket with good friends, some delicious munchies and a nice glass of wine.


WHAT:  LACMA’s Outdoor Film Series: Animation August

COST:  Event is FREE!  Parking is $10 or free after 7pm.

BofA Museums On Us

Did you know that if you own a Bank of America card, you can get free admission into various museums nationwide on eligible weekends?  Ugh, sorry, that totally sounded like some generic ad.  But go here for the 411 and get yo culture on.

Sotheby’s Beyond Limits 2011

Sotheby’s Beyond Limits exhibition is taking place at the Chatsworth House Garden. The sculptures look so beautiful and interesting, and the setting couldn’t be lovelier. The exhibition/auction runs from 9/16/11 to 10/30/11. Oh, how I wish I could go!

Click here to see a slideshow of some of the sculptures.

Pacific Standard Time Website

By now, the buzz around Pacific Standard Time has probably reached the ears of most Angelenos. (You’ve seen me talk about it herehere and here) Participation in the collaboration includes museums and galleries located all over Southern California, and it sounds like it’s going to be a really neat way to help us learn more about our art scene and its history. Check out the website for the 411 on this initiative. Hopefully the So Cal peeps are able to find an event that piques their interest! And it even looks like some exhibits are already open.
