LACMA chooses Monterey Park as next city for free art outreach program

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has chosen Monterey Park as the next city for its art outreach program, LACMA9 Art+Film Lab. The project will offer free art and film programming to Monterey Park and neighboring cities between Jan. 10 and Feb. 9, 2014. 

The city is the fourth stop for LACMA since the Art+Film Lab's launch in June 2013, following Redlands, San Bernardino, and Altadena. LACMA Associate Vice President of Education Sarah Jesse said the museum chose Monterey Park for its rich history and strategic location and that it is the perfect place to reach out to the east Los Angeles community.

“Monterey Park is a historically and culturally significant community in the Los Angeles region, and accessible by many communities LACMA was interested in developing a relationship with," Jesse said, "including East Los Angeles, Alhambra, Boyle Heights."

While the physical art exhibits remain the same as they tour Southern California cities, LACMA tailors the film programming and art workshops to each city based on community feedback and conversations with residents. The lab will include interactive film workshops, film screenings, sculpture exhibits, and an oral history project. Attendees will also receive free admission to the museum on the Miracle Mile stretch of Wilshire Boulevard.

Established in 1961, LACMA is the largest museum in the western United States, according to its website. LACMA9 Art+Film Lab is its newest outreach initiative that aims to connect people through film and encourage creative expression with technology.

“LACMA has a long history of engaging communities outside of the museum walls as a way to deepen relationships with different communities in and around Los Angeles," Jesse said. "We figure if we go where the people are, and share a strong, dynamic suite of free public programs, we could expose audiences to the museum as a cultural resource."

LACMA9 Art+Film Lab opens at East Los Angeles College on Jan. 10 with a reception from 6-10 p.m. Read more about the lineup of events on the LACMA website.
