Upcoming Programs

Love, LAMAG: Art Talks on Open Call: Apophenia

The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery presents Love, LAMAG, an annual program celebrating the gallery’s dedication to contemporary art since 1945. This year Love, LAMAG is a series of art talks led by LAMAG staff on Open Call: Apophenia, a non-juried exhibition featuring youth, students, professional, and non-professional artists to present their artwork side by side. The art talks are free, insightful, and short discussions on the beloved exhibition format, themes, and participating artists. The series culminates with an extended invitation to all Open Call participants to join LAMAG staff in the gallery on March 16th to celebrate the end of the exhibition.
