Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG)

The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery’s mission is to be responsive to the human experience.

Established in 1954, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is the longest running institution in Los Angeles devoted solely to exhibiting art. The gallery focuses on artists from Los Angeles – in particular underrepresented artists whose work may not otherwise have found a platform. Our exhibitions, educational and public programs aim to inspire conversation about the contemporary issues and ideas that resonate most with the people of Los Angeles.

Many local artists who have exhibited at the gallery have gone on to become fixtures of the international art world, including Eleanor Antin, John Baldessari, Mark Bradford, Vija Celmins, David Hammons, Barbara Kruger, Kerry James Marshall, Senga Nengudi, Catherine Opie and Ed Ruscha. Today, the gallery continues to build on this rich legacy, operating as a site of discovery for outstanding work by the city’s most exciting artists, from recent graduates to practitioners with years of experience.

Offering free admission and programs, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery serves as a welcoming space for everyone, regardless of their income level, personal history, ethnicity, sexual orientation, immigration status, religion or gender identity.

LEARNING

The programs at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG) act as a gateway for learning. The gallery’s goal is to inspire new ways for our visitors to see, experience and connect with one another and with the broader world. As a site of engagement for Los Angeles’ diverse communities, LAMAG serves as a resource to examine and unpack the nuances of the city through contemporary art. LAMAG offers our communities a space for more intimate conversations through a wide range of education programs that include:

LAMAGLearn

LAMAGLearn encompasses public programs such as artist talks, events, performances and symposiums that bring communities together to listen, learn and discuss issues of importance in our city. LAMAG also provides professional opportunities to help nurture all generations of artists through our biennial Juried and Open Call exhibitions. LAMAGLearn guided tours are also available upon request for groups of 15 or more.

LAMAGPlay

LAMAGPlay includes activities and family workshops for all-ages that creatively engage in participatory arts projects to foster a meaningful gallery experience. Our School and group visit program offers innovative ways for the next generation to discuss art critically.  We can accommodate up to 50 students for a two hour program that includes a gallery tour and art workshop. LAMAG’s school visits are aligned with select sections of the California State Curriculum Standards, STEAM curricula, as well as Common Core Curriculum. For each exhibition, LAMAG also offers an Educators’ Guide and Family Guide.
